How board game publishers can use The Game Crafter's print on demand service as a contingency plan at game conventions

This is a great article by AnSR Games that talks about how board game publishers can use The Game Crafter’s print on demand service at conventions. Specifically as a contingency plan for when a publisher sells out of copies at the convention and people still want to purchase the game at the show.

AnSR Games is a indie game publisher in The Game Crafter community and they will be attending a Locally Crafted Games Fair (LCG Fair) in St Louis, MO on July 13th.

Quest Adventure Cards(tm) — Not just about "Set Collection"

Recently I was "again" inspired by the original "Set Collection" game but wanted more "innovative" mechanics to go along with the basic mechanic present in the original game.

My thoughts turned to "dice" games which invoke a sense of "LUCK". And I pondered on HOW the "Set Collection" mechanic was also luck-based too.

And then I had an interesting thought: what if the "Set Collection" was COMBINED with a "Push-Your-Luck" (PYL) mechanic?!?!
