I am expanding my game design work into the field of sports starting with revamping tennis to make it more exciting to watch. As I plan to make it 20% better the new sport will be known as twelvenis.
First improvement; explosive balls set on a random timer.
I have been working on a wizard dueling game for a long time now. Many things have stalled the project but now that I have it well along its way and I am seeing the light at the end of the tunnel there is one sticking point that keeps gnawing at me; The Name.
My personal copies along with about 100 Box tops I need to sign and return to minion games arrived Saturday evening. I’m very happy with it. The box is efficiently small but with a great deal of heft. You know when you pick it up that you’re not buying air. The quality of the materials is top notch. Our distributer is filling orders, the games should be in stores very soon.
Did I say I’m very happy with it!
Last week I was approached by Games Play UK. They asked if I would be interested in having them represent my game Cannon in an attempt to get it into a big publishing house like Hasbro, Mattel, or Spin Master. They required that I send the rules, pictures of the game and a play overview which I did and they said they would review the game and make a decision in a few weeks.
I have entered Buka & Back in the KGB game design Challenge
This is the first contest I have entered in a long time. Usually I miss the deadline because I can’t get the game ready in time. Fortunately Buka & Back has been ready for submission for some time and only took a little rules tweaking to get it ready.
There are several prizes
First Place $1000
Second Place $400
Third Place $200
And the possibility of licensing the game to them. We could all use a little $ and getting the games published is the ultimate goal.
With only 10 days remaining in the kickstarter campaign
Minion games has decided to run a contest for Tahiti at board game geek to see if we can boost pledging and make one or more of the stretch goals.
It’s free to enter so why not sign up.
Seems like it took forever to get it ready but the Tahiti Kickstarter campaign has started!
And it's off to a great start!
Thank you for supporting this project.
Look at all the publishers attending this year.

Good layout and easy to read-Check
Only a few minor graphics issues to fix and that’s not my job- Check
Some people have told me that putting your product up on Tanga is a good way to get exposure. I have always felt like Tanga was a dumping ground for slow moving product.
We will see if this leads to a boost in sales beyond Tanga or just as a way for Minion Games to free up some warehouse space.
