Lay a brick on me

Fetishes aside....I'm talking about new packaging for Pocket Sports and new 12 game BRICKS of solid, sporty delights.

*Note to self....choose better descriptors.

If you haven't noticed, I'm going through a re-packaging exercise for new games late in H2.

I've always sold wholesale in boxes of 30 games. While it suits larger stores and helps me move bulk stock, it's also a large order for first time stockists who haven't experienced the soul cleansing goodness of Pocket Sports.

So the smaller, entry sized brick for new tuck box packaging, lays a great foundation.

Say it isn't so.....!

Now Aussie Rules or Cycling may not appeal to many folks here...but if these concept card don't tickle a Nth American's love of beer, toques and hockey.....then you're an imposter :)

I'd love some feedback / design comments on these. Not confirmed, Pocket Sports Hockey may have resurfaced!

Cubes will track goals. Rather than using a timer or stopwatch, the first team to score 6 goals (or whatever you nominate) wins.

Power Play durations last until a goal is scored or 3 Saves or missed shots (turnovers) are accrued.

Starting Physical Prototypes and Clearances

Starting Physical Prototypes and Clearances

Several updates in this post as I've grabbed a little time to spare here and there to add new cards and wanted to start creating some physical version of the game to start play-testing.

But first...

Clearances for products

I have always wanted to use real products, personalities and events in the game and this has meant getting legal clearance to do so, or at least attempting to.

Rundown- GTA like board game

Hello Friends,
This is my first blog post on BGDF so let me start with introducing myself, I am a normal guy like other and a huge fan of GTA Franchise, I also like web designing and board game designing. I create board game just for fun purpose.

RUNDOWN - THE GTA LIKE BOARD GAME [W.I.P]

Idea of Rundown came in my mind after watching Mad Tv's and plasticwood's videos about GTA board game.

IDEA/CONCEPT:-

Tradewars - Homeworld: The Quest for Review

I have been planning on making enough copies of the game to distribute to various "Game Reviewers". My goal is to target 10 reviewers and see what each on thinks about the game. Also would be nice to have a few videos to explain how the game plays out...

I started with Del Laird and his offer to BUY 8mm acrylic cubes. I liked the idea and it's something I wanted to offer with the game instead of the old wooden cubes. Well the cubes came in and they are ... totally AWESOME!

Crystal Heroes: New beginnings

Hello all,

After the sad but TRUE announcement that I will no longer be investing time into "Quest Adventure Cards(tm): Second Edition", I am excited to announce some changes in my game roster.

First of all, I had a Video Game production called "Crystal Heroes". This was initially a Nintendo DSi Video game which then became a Android Cellular phone game, which is NOW going to be a "Table Top Card Game"...

Quest Adventure Cards(tm) - 2nd Edition (Retired)

Hello all,

I know I have been blogging about about the "Second Edition" of "Quest Adventure Cards(tm)" and talking about runs, sets and suits. However this is a HARD NOTICE that I will no longer be designing this game.

My reason for this is because I don't feel "Quest AC 2" will be a game that will have high acceptance in the tabletop game world. I just don't see the game becoming a "hit" based on its current design.

Quad-Fold & Bi-Fold Game Board Upgrade

Starting with order 69555,(and perhaps some before), The Game Crafter has upgraded the stock used for Quad-Fold and Bi-Fold game boards to have a matt finish. In addition, the new stock has a better grain, which means more durable folding for years to come. Perhaps best of all, this is a free upgrade! Enjoy!
