Shipped!

OMG I am very happy that my first Kickstarter has now shipped to customers. My own copies will arrive in three days' time, and packages will be arriving in Canada and the UK within the next few days as well.

So I'm officially a published game designer :)

That is all.

ARTIST LOOKING FOR A GAME TO DO ART FOR

Dragon vs. Knight by Byron Stoddard

Hello everyone,

I am an artist and after viewing many amazing kickstarter board game projects that have been successfully.
I see that doing art for a solid board game would be a good investment of my time.

Any interested game startups hit me up and check out my work at:

Redrawn Villains and New Playerboards

The Unhinged

I redrew my villains for Book of Villainy. Until now, I'd been using some drawings I did in a half an hour at work. For the past few months however, I'd been practicing my drawing and getting better with dynamic poses, and I felt I could do better realizations of my villains. So I changed some of their designs, and instead of villain character cards, which I had also been using up until now, I created new playerboards. Thanks to a suggestion in my sellsheet post, I realized I could just make character specific playerboards and consolidate components.

Mensa

I'm thinking about submitting for

https://mensamindgames.com/about/general-information/

I'm not quite sure how likely I am to do well there, or really what the benefit will end up being, but may be a good use of 15 copies of my game.

Anyone here have any experience with the Mensa board game competition, or what the effect is on your sales if you win? (I'm pretty sure it would be a good way to get into, say, Barnes & Noble)
