Brewin' USA PnP Sample Image

My name is Adam Rehberg and I am out of Minneapolis Minnesota. I am new to the game design hobby but have been feverishly working on a project called Brewin' USA. I have a print and play recently available for this and I would love to get some feedback on the PnP and the Game if anybody is interested. I created this game out of my dream to one day start and run a Microbrewery.

Brewin' USA: 2-5 player, 60 minutes or less
Mechanics:
*Auction
*Hand Management
*Area Control
*Modular Board

Link to the PnP here. http://www.brewinusa.com/merry-xmas-pnp

The print and play is a little bit component heavy but I tried to do a good job on the printer friendly color version to make up for it.

Thanks in advance for any feedback and welcoming into the community.

I knew someone who wanted to do the same thing. What did he do? Well he rented a restaurant and in the basement he brewed his beer. The place was call "Brewtopia" (http://brutopia.net/). He eventually SOLD the business but the restaurant as you can see is still open! :)

Good places to look for a business partner are the rotary club, the local chamber of commerce, community organizations, etc.

BUT if you want to design games - well that's okay too!

Good luck with both your "projects"!

Very inspiring thanks for the share. I will keep that in mind about looking for business partners being a Gen Y I guess I would not have thought to check there.

Who designed your website? I am looking for a web designer to help design my website http://www.xtg3.org

RE: site design

I did :). I don't really have any web design experience but was able to figure out the wordpress thing and this is site #2.

If you go that route, something you can do to stick out from the pack is to purchase a theme versus using a free theme. I think I paid less than $50 for the theme and it gave me built in functionality for things like the front page animations and a few other neat addons. Most of the addons also exist in the wild but are in the form of non-integrated plugins so updates and layout can be a pain.

I am hosting through GoDaddy who has been okay, but I sorta get the feeling when I want to do something custom (ex: Digital Downloads outside of the webroot folder) that they are not a good hosting company to enable that.

Wow!

That's amazing Adam! For $50.00 that's FANTASTIC value. I also use GoDaddy but not for hosting just domain registration. I prefer In Motion Hosting (http://www.inmotionhosting.com/) for actual hosting - they are an industry GIANT. They have "Max Speed Zones" that allow you to choose your center - where to host your files (East or West coast).

However your site looks real fantastic... GREAT JOB!

If you did so great with only $50.00, man you are going to be the BEST Microbrewer around! BTW I like Ricard's White Ale (Belgian-Style with coriander and orange peels) Love the fresh taste the beer has especially with the citrus! ;)

http://www.rickards.ca/ It's a Canadian Microbrewery that got bought over. Now it belongs to Coors and Molson.

Rickards White

Thanks for the huge complements! I have traveled to Canada with work a few times about 3/4 years ago and I am a fan of Rickard's Red and Rickard's white. I was mostly in rural areas that had many wineries and orchards but did not have many breweries around. How many microbreweries would you guess are in Canada?
