Ok, here it is.

After several months of research I'd like to show you what I've created:

www.nestorgames.com

I think you will find interesting how my products are made. It is a completely new manufacturing method. For those of you who want to know more, plese take a look at the "about us->The project" section.

I'd like to thank everybody from this community that helped me. I've added BGDF to the "friends" section.

I hope you like it!

I am impressed. The video in

I am impressed. The video in particular sold it to me! Do have any plans to introduce decks of cards to your basic formats or will all your releases have to be board/pieces only?

I have a game I'm working on at the moment which would DEFINITELY suit that style of board but it does also involve a few decks of event cards.

Anyway, congratulations and good luck with the venture!

Thank you for your interest!

That is a good question. The format supports almost anything but large boards or cards. This will be explained on the "submissions" section.

Cards are just too big for the case (diameter=2,5 inches). Moreover, as the case is not "rigid", the cards inside it could be damaged.

More formats will be available soon that allow cards and larger boards. I'm about to publish a game with this format that could be a good example.

Really nice idea!

Really nice idea! One of my games is currently in the prototyping and testing stage, and I am curious about your business! When money is a little less tight for me, I'll gladly buy a game. I was curious though, my game would mostly be portable with a slight change in design, but requires paper/pen to keep track of money. Would this fit outside your 'portable game' model?

Best of luck, it looks nice!

Game format

Hi!

Thank you all for your interest!

As you can imagine, I'm a bit busy at the moment. But as soon as I can, I will publish the guidelines for the submission process and a description of what "FORMAT 1" can handle.

Just a few things about this format so you can adapt/design your games:

- It uses a DIN A4 board (210 mm x 297 mm) with a 3 mm of unusable margin (white).
- It supports 3mm laser cut UNIQUE acrylic pieces (see Adaptoid or Hippos & crocodiles)
- Acrylic pieces can have images (Hippos and crocodiles), but in this case the the pieces cannot be as small as in Adaptoid. This means it supports acrylic tiles (amazing durability).
- It supports dice.
- Laser cut acrylic is probably the most expensive part of the game, so the less the cutting (perimeter), the lower the price.
- It doesn't support cards, or paper, as it can be damaged.
- It supports standard gaming pieces like counters or pawns.
- The games don't need to be abstracts.

"FORMAT 2" is about to be launched with another Cameron's game, later this week. So please visit the site.

I hope this helps for the moment.
