ICYMI - Game Pieces Only Challenge

ICYMI - Eric Jome, the host of Midwest Tabletop Game Design and Protospiel Milwaukee, presents the Game Pieces Only Challenge.

Let’s get back to our game design roots and design a game without any fancy printing. Design a game using only bits.

The game should consist only of bits available through The Game Crafter parts store. This means the only printables would be a rulebook and a box; no cards, mats, tiles, stickers, or boards are to be used. Use of paper and pencil is strongly discouraged.

Step back. Listen. Redouble efforts.

After all the comments, I managed to take everything that was said and boil it together for the kickstarter page. Just this Sunday, I got my 90-min consultation with IGA about the Dungeon Brawl kickstarter page. Some suggestions were reaffirmed, others were new. I ended up scrapping the minis idea. That dropped the fund mark a lot. The tiers for funding is bare bones now. Lots of pictures.
