Tabletop Events - Con of Champions - Virtual Protospiel

The Virtual Protospiel at the Con of Champions is the first ever board game prototype convention event to be run online in a digital format, allowing board game designers from around the world to test their games together and fight the spread of COVID-19.

Participants need to buy a badge for the Con of Champions to participate. All proceeds from badge sales go directly to the Tabletop Events fundraiser to help keep the site operating through the pandemic.

New: Custom Game Scents at The Game Crafter

Many people in The Game Crafter community enjoy the smoky campfire smell that occurs when we manufacture games with laser cut components. However, for those of you who aren't fans, we added 5 new scents that you can apply to your game. We hope you enjoy these new options and we plan to expand our collection later this year.

Ravenhall's Town Crier #11

The primary purpose of Legends of Ravenhall's Town Crier is to inform and unite the tabletop game community. As we continue to pursue this purpose, we are evaluating an option to contribute content to, or merge with, a digital magazine to expand our outreach. This could lead to reformatting the Town Crier, or curtailing the Crier in its current form and transferring to the new one. We will update you on the progress of this potential development and, either way, will continue to serve our game community!

Covid-19 Effects on The Game Crafter

The Game Crafter - The Leading Print On Demand Game Publisher

Due to Covid-19, the governor of Wisconsin has issued an executive order to temporarily shut down in-person activities at all non-essential businesses. The good news is that we are not a non-essential business! The bad news for you is that we’re going to be processing orders slower due to new safety measures.

Monster Keep — Third Prototype

Well the good news is that I'm working on a THIRD (3rd) Prototype for "Monster Keep" (MK). And while the game has "changed" A LOT (True...) I believe it is for the BETTER. I gave myself SIMPLE "rules" to follow and see what the result could be.

Some of those rules are:

A> I wanted a Battle/Duel/Take-That kind of game.

B> I wanted it to be SIMPLER than Pokemon.

C> I wanted the game to play between 10 and 15 minutes.

D> I wanted a format that could support Deck Construction.

E> I wanted to have a format that could sell from an online store.
