Hello everybody!

I'd like to tell you guys about my current project, named Orctoberfest. I'm working on the game a bit more than a year now, and it's definitely time to tell interested people about it and get some feedback from the wide public.

The game is about a fantasy fair, the ORctoberfest, where all creatures from the fantasy world are trying to have a good time.

Each player starts with 10 character cards. During the game, the players will queue up their character cards in waiting lines, trying to get them served as fast as possible in order to score the most points at the end of the game. The gameplay is mainly simultaneous.

The game is in a late development state and got provided with some nice artwork from the very talented Agnès Fouquart.

Here are some prototype cards.


And some other artwork that will be in the game.


The game itself plays in approximately 30 minutes and the rules are relatively easy to pick up. However, it will take a game or two to get into all the character abilities and interactions.

So what do you guys think? Let me know if you want to know more!

P.S.: I will present the game in Essen this year and, very short notice, will have a prototype with me for the Brussels Games Festival this weekend.

You have some sort of mythical hairy creature in lederhosen. I literally do not need to know anything else about the game.

Oh! Except one thing! I need to know when I can have it.

Hello again Andrew!

I'm happy that you find the theme (and artwork) intriguing.

The schedule for Orctoberfest is as follows:

- beginning of September I will work with the graphic designer on the final design of the cards and looking into the design for the kickstarter campaign
- in Orctober I will be at Essen SPIEL, presenting the prototype
- the Kickstarter campaign is planned for the end of the year (somewhen between late Orctober and December)

I hope it progresses well!

Back from Brussels Games Festival and a week of gaming holidays afterwards (and yes, it was amazing!). Sat together with the designer yesterday and I'm excited to see the final card design.

Now I thought it would be nice to show some more artwork, so here is some more:

The Dwarf


Icons for the Orc and Vampire:



And the beer player token:


What do you guys think? I'll be back with more updates soon!
