The Game Crafter - Why do we crowd fund?

The Game Crafter's CEO, JT Smith, discusses why TGC crowd funds board games, beyond the obvious reasons. Check out the video at

Also, Parkies launched on Kickstarter yesterday and funded in just 15 hours! Parkies is a bidding and building game for 2 to 5 players. The game comes with more than 60 unique attractions. However, in Parkies your goal is to not only build an incredible theme park filled with amazing attractions, but you must also attract the parkies.

The Game Crafter now makes a Large Retail Game Box!

The Game Crafter - Large Retail Game Box

The Large Retail Box is now available from The Game Crafter. It is a double-walled 60pt chipboard box, that's fully printed on all sides. It measures 11.75″ x 9.125″ x 2″ and is large enough to hold a couple of quad fold boards, hundreds of cards, a manual, and lots of game pieces. In other words, it can hold even your largest game designs. Not only that, but this box is designed to feel good and look good on a retailer shelf. It is our most shelfworthy box to date. Enjoy!

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!

Blank Business Cards
Blank Domino Cards
Blank Small Square Cards

Semi-Finalists Announced for Killer Gamer's Remorse Challenge

The Game Crafter is pleased to announce that the semi-finalist games have been announced for the Killer Gamer's Remorse Challenge!

The objective of this game design contest:

"A player elimination game that is implemented in such a way that it is still fun. Maybe it is a quick game like love letter. Maybe it is a longer game but the eliminated players still have a role to play like in werewolf via the "ghost writer" ability. Or maybe you finish is off in the most glorious fashion possible, so humorous that we are dying laughing for the next 30 minutes."
