Thanks to our partners, Kaissa Games, Hidden City Games is pleased to offer a quick online Demo of our Collectable Throwing Game, Clout: Fantasy (BGG GameID: 17166)

The demo can be found right on our front page and takes just a couple of minutes to complete. In that time you'll get brief taste of how our throwing game works. Since Clout's neither a board game nor a card game, it's hard to figure what BGG players will think of it. Please feel free to let us know right here on BGG.

Thanks, I was wondering how this game was played.

How do you measure distances for movement and range?

There is a special ruler that comes in the starter packs. I know the game sounds silly, but we have a small group of dedicated fans here in Arizona.

Each starter game comes with a measuring tape. The standard range increment is 5cm, but additional scales are included to play on larger surfaces (like the floor) and to allow 'handicapping' for new or younger players. When a chip lands, measurements are made to see what's in range and not, and the results of the effects are applied. After a few games, you can eye-ball all but the closest of shots.

The game is designed to be played on any flat surface in an approximately 3'x3'area, but literally anything bigger than 2'x2' will work. The average gaming/kitchen table is more than sufficient.

Me too, actually! Now that I know it's not just me, I'll see if I can get some sort of prompt added.

Yeah, Mike the Crack Monkey introduced the game to me and I've spent way too much on it. I've shown several people how to play and all but one has bought some, and the one who didn't is going to when he can get the Undead/Elf starter.

You mean you trow the chip? I thought you had to flip it.
Ok this game will be much easier now.

I thought measurement was by chip diameters...

We didn't use chip-lengths, but that certainly could be used. The exact length of the range increments is variable. While I'm not sure of this, it may in fact be shorter and thus closer to a chip-length in Japan, where space is considered more of a premium. Memory tells me the change was to 4cm range increments, but that discussion was months ago and I honestly can't remember. (In fact, since Japanese product hasn't made it to US shores yet, I could be imagining the whole thing!)

If you prefer an official range increment, the officialest is 5cm.
