Hello

Solo designer. Now up to my 15th version of the game and I think there may be one or two more incarnations before I am brave enough to really go for it. Prototype with printers so I can continue testing. Been to a few events and lovely to see how friendly and helpful people have been. Admire anyone who gets a game on the shelves - can see what a battle that is.

Reducing standard deviation in games involving single die rolls

My recently-published design Hastings 1066, which well-known game reviewer Marco Arnaudo calls a “lunchtime wargame”, and which I call a successor to old-time microgames, reflects the amount of chance that occurs in a real battle: a lot. As with any historical battle game, simulating the chaos and chances of war is more or less the opposite of what gamers want as they explore generalship.

New Board Game Pieces - Western Pistols

The Game Crafter - Board Game Pieces - Western Pistols

We added Western Pistols to our Board Game Pieces Shop! These are fine quality scale miniature Western Pistols that come in a set of 2. They measure .8415" x .122" x .8385" (H x W x L) and come in the original bag from the manufacturer. These pieces have a lot of detail and would be great for games with a western theme. We also have a rifle if that is a better fit for your game.

New Game Pieces - Painter's Pallette

The Game Crafter - Board Game Pieces - Painter's Palette Miniature

We added a Painter’s Pallete to our Board Game Pieces Shop. This is a fine quality scale miniature Painters Palette that measures .234″ x 1.998″ x 1.348″ (h,w,d). This could be a great premium component in a board game or serve as a first player token.
