Uhh! Finally my first game went to printing!
It's Kalev's cardgames: Kalevi kaardimängud and printrun is ca 30000 for Estonian X-mas market.
I publish the cards & rulesheet. Kalev, the biggest sweets factory in Estonia, will put it to candybag.

...and my profit will go to future publishing plans!

Its always cool to read about a designer being able to 1. get their game into players hands, and 2. make SOME money from doing it.

Much success with your future games!

There is a road, no simple highway, between the dawn and the dark of night, and if you go no one may follow, that path is for your steps alone. Ripple in still water, when there is no pebble tossed, nor wind to blow.

To seek the sacred river Alph, to walk the caves of ice, to break my fast on honey dew and drink the milk of paradise... I had heard the whispered tales of immortality, the deepest mystery, from an ancient book I took a clue.

Isn't this great to have a forum where there are folks that understand what many of us are trying to do and genuinely want to see people succeed?!

Finally the printing company has finished whole printrun (about 3 weeks later as in contract) and there is little quantity for sharing and selling in my hand.

Also I have picture about how it looks like in shops on X-mas time


Ok I have not 100% happy of the product-designs but that's not my problem.
They bought from me the game and know better what they want
