The Game Crafter - Board Game Pieces - Pigs

We added 3 new pigs to our board game pieces shop! They come in Black and White, Brown, and Pink. We don’t know what kind of houses they live in, but we know they work great for farming or resource management games. :)

Window Pains 4p End

Window Pains 4 Player Edition

Window Pains 4P Setup

I'm glad to say the 4 player version looks great, and plays exactly the same (except with better pacing) as the 2 player game.

Boy are rules more tricky to write then I expected. I think I am too familiar with my game. Its such a small game that it only deserves one page of rules.

Here: have some pictures!

New Board Game Pieces - Goats

The Game Crafter - Board Game Pieces - Goats

We added Goats to our Board Game Pieces Shop! They come in 3 different colors and work well in farming or resource management games. Because our supplier sends us a random assortment, we don’t sell specific colors. When ordering, you’ll receive a random selection of these 3 colors. 17mm Meeple included for scale.

My game, Void Zone (Formerly Jolt) is being published

Void Zone Demo Prototype

Hi folks,

Just creating a blog to say that my game, Void Zone, (formerly called Jolt) has been picked up by an up and coming publisher and is set for Kickstarter this year. It has been picked up by Board Game Hub who ran a great Kickstarter for Tranquility in 2019, set to fulfil next month.

I really appreciate all of the help and advice that Ive received on here. I have been more of a lurker recently but this is one of my most frequently visited sites.

Monster Keep vs. Crystal Heroes

Okay so a new debate has surface concerning the game that I am working on. In a way, it's not really a complicated matter ... but there are reasons for making a decision either which way. Let me explain.

So in essence the change is pretty SIMPLE: Changing the name to "Crystal Heroes" instead of "Monster Keep".

Why this new name change? Well it's got to do with REASONING:

1> I don't feel like the game is about MONSTERS. It's more about HEROES even if there are Villainous ones.
