If you have a Board Game Geek (BGG) account and want to share support for our game "TradeWorlds: Exterra Edition" which will be delivered in Q3 2018, here is the nomination link:

"TradeWorlds entry #117 on BGG"

Every nomination COUNTS... We've got 900+ backers, 150+ fans of the game, and a bunch of people in on the contest to win a free copy of the game.

If you have an account or are willing to create one, PLEASE give us a nomination!!!

Many thanks!

As well our IndieGoGo launches on Tuesday too!

I don't want to post too many announcements... So I'll probably just post that on "Tuesday" (11/14/2017) we will be launching our IndieGoGo campaign to help raise awareness about the Top 20 Games of 2018...

We are offering IGG backers the SAME pricing and rewards earned by our Kickstarter last May 2017... It's been about 6 months and we've been moving forwards getting more artwork done. I can't say we are on-schedule but I can say we're not late. The artwork is taking more time than expected - but we know Charles is doing a tremendous effort in rendering the cards and illustrations. Plus he's a teacher too... So he's very busy.

This IGG campaign will be "flexible" and any and all copies that you Backers buy will be MADE and ADDED to our order with our Manufacturer. That's right every copy of the game ordered will be added to our 900+ backers.

While we realize the traffic on IGG is less than Kickstarter... We hope to offer a great deal (pricing-wise and content-wise) that may get other people also excited about our game.

So expect to hear from me in a few days announcing the launch of the IGG campaign!

Cheers.

So is a nomination simply

So is a nomination simply giving your game a "thumbs up", because that's what I just did. Wanted to make sure there wasn't something else I was supposed to do.

Yeah - just a Thumbs Up!

That's all that we are asking for... If we can get enough "Thumbs Up!" we can make it to the SECOND phase which is ANOTHER "Thumbs Up!" but this time it's a VOTE versus a NOMINATION!

Again thanks for the "Thumbs Up!"

Cheers.

Back for a 2nd Year...

While I know this is just a popularity game garnering nominations and then votes... It also helps to determine what people are "thinking" about the game.

We are currently at 18 nominations.

And if we compare with Trench that got HALF of our "backers" that is a bit worrisome that people may be "forgetting" the game and focusing on more recent games available to them.

Such things happen with games, they are HOT for a short while and then they disappear into the sea that is Board Game Geek (BGG). That's another reason we are participating in this contest: to get backers to contribute and participate much like the original Kickstarter.

Tomorrow Tuesday 14 November at 9:00 AM we will LAUNCH the IndieGoGo to help "rekindle" that excitement about owning your own copy of the game minus a 6 month production window. What I mean is that KS backers will have waited more than 1 year... IGG backers will wait about 6 months.

This has everything to do with getting our artwork FINALIZED ASAP. We realize that the art is taking a bit longer than previously expected... But that we are NOT late in our schedule... For the most part, it's just "BUFFER" time that we allocated to ensure that we could follow the timeline.

So I invite everyone to JOIN US TOMORROW for the IGG launch... We'll see how well we do and learn more about IGG as a platform and fans using it also...

Cheers!

So far a real disappointment...

Well we knew trying to simply "cross-over" to IndieGoGo (IGG) might NOT work. To date from 9:00 AM TODAY, we have 0 Backers! This is very unfortunate... but we were well aware that this would be one of the possible outcomes. We are going to LEAVE the campaign for the 30 days and see what we end up with. But with the demonstration of today's level of backing, I doubt we will get much funding from the IGG platform.

We will keep everyone posted... to tell about future progress, if any.

Cheers.

Many Thanks!

For people with BGG accounts already it's pretty simple to Nominate us:

  • All you do is follow the BGG link to the right entry...
  • Next you make sure you are logged into BGG...
  • And lastly you click on the Green Thumbs Up on entry #117.

It's as easy and simple as that.

Many thanks for those who nominate us!

I thumbed up somewhere at day

I thumbed up somewhere at day 2, when your campaign just started.
It took me 3 attempts however, to get a 10 star and "owning the game".

Seeing so many entries again this year.
But still, the best of luck!

Seriously - the competition is stiff this year!

Yes I understand what you mean?! I thought there was going to be hardly any competition in the Sci-Fi category - because last year there was not so many entries in Sci-Fi. But OVERALL there were games with out 500+ votes... So I knew we would not be in the Top 20.

This year with 900+ Backers and 150+ Fans ... I figured - for sure we can make a difference. BUT this year there are MORE Sci-Fi games than last year...!

Driving me crazy how this contest can not be won by my game! :P LOL

No seriously, it changes each year making it impossible to be in the Top 20.

Oh well!

What can be achieved by being

What can be achieved by being in the top 20?

It takes people to get there. So, your goal isn't getting people to know your game. Right?

It kinda feels like a paradox. And those you asked to vote. Might feel more "mêh" next time.

So, maybe trying to win this, is cutting your own fingers. But that is just my point of view.

Tough sale so far...

Mostly "bragging rights"... But it's an ACCOMPLISHMENT. It sort of means that your game is recognized as been one of the top games of 2018... That's a real accomplishment - considering it takes people to VOTE.

Well it means people who "backed" the game - feel like it's one of the better games out there. But it's true, many of those people who backed the game, have never PLAYED IT!

Yeah I understand how you feel. Ultimately it's real purpose is to give games some sort of "ranking" to encourage more people to play and enjoy. The ultimate hope being that if you have FUN playing, you'll make the effort of going out and getting your OWN copy of the game...

Which Ramon you already have the "core" version... So you can judge based on the "core" how the extended game will play - very similar with more scenarios, a couple expansions, nicer dice, game mats, four player box, foiled logo, thicker Game Pads, etc.
