Specialty Tabletop Game

Hi!

I've created a specialty tabletop game for wine consumers, to help them understand wine ratings, wine reviews, and wines gone bad. It is a disruptive, market-making game. I have focused all of my efforts so far on the wine industry, but I am now looking at the game industry for new contacts and new ideas for how to get TYT produced.

Mechwarrior - Pocket Arcade

Since Hamish posted that he has been feeling "restless" about Pocket Sports, I too have been feeling an "itch" also. So I have been thinking about a Pocket Edition game and have come up with the idea of a "Mechwarrior" Pocket Arcade concept. Let me introduce the concept and some of my thoughts.

Dice on ice, baby!

Take off eh!

Watch me as I introduce Pocket Sports Hockey and play through a period with Team USA vs Team Canada!

Tradewars - Homeworld: What comes next

Well it's official NOW, as of today, that we will be investing more money in producing MORE artwork for our game "Tradewars - Homeworld". In the next four (4) months, we have commissioned the production of artwork for a "Lite" Edition of the game.

The "Lite" Edition will feature less cards, less scenarios and much less artwork. But by the miracle of the Internet the COST to gamers of our game will drop from $29.99 to UNDER $20.00!!!

Don't forget you will be getting the game with a little less and paying an AMAZING price tag for the "Lite" Edition.

TGC Designer Interview with Marcin Zarycki

The Game Crafter - Designer Interview with Marcin Zarycki

We just released a new board game designer interview with Marcin Zarycki. He’s a talented game designer and a HUGE supporter of The Game Crafter community. He has helped hundreds, if not thousands of people over the years in The Game Crafter’s forums and chat channel. You probably know him as “Zovu” on thegamecrafter.com. :)

He signed a publishing deal with Argyle Games for his game, Landed. In addition, he has another game that was signed by Floodgate Games and that will be out later this year. Congrats on all the success Marcin! We believe you have a bright future ahead of you. Click here to watch the full interview on youtube

Landed is currently on Kickstarter and you can check it out at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1976572248/landed-a-competitive-terraforming-board-game

Tradewars - Homeworld: First game preview

Here is a "brief" article about "Tradewars - Homeworld". It's apparently true that our game DOES have a lot of depth... Surprisingly more than expected!

http://www.purplepawn.com/2016/02/unpublishedtradewars-homeworld/

Thank you to Robert C. Kalajian Jr., one of the Purple Pawn Editors, for taking the time to "preview" our game...

And if you haven't seen our preview video from BoardToDeath TV, here is the YouTube link:

Thanks for taking a look or read... We hope more reviewers will chime in with more articles concerning our game.

The Game Crafter now makes linen cards and components!

The Game Crafter - Linen cards, boxes, and boards are now available!

The Game Crafter is pleased to announce that LINEN is here! For the past year, linen cards have been the number one idea in the ideas system. We’re pleased to announce that we now have linen finished cards. But why stop at cards?

When you enable linen finish on your game, everything from your cards to your box to your game board will get our professional linen finish! And you can do it with or without UV coating, but UV coating really makes it pop. Just go to “edit details” in your game and you can enable linen finish for $0.25 per sheet.
