Playtesters for a family board game.

Hi I am looking for playtesters (a family) to test a family board game. Prototypes are currently being printed and will be ready in a few weeks. I would prefer players in the UK or near europe merely to save on postage costs.

Thanks

Winner Announced in the Phase Shift Dimensions Challenge!

The Game Crafter - Board Game Design Contest - Phase Shift Dimensions Challenge

We have a winner for the Phase Shift Dimensions Challenge!

We had an absolute blast playing the finalist’s games. Each one was so fundamentally different, which was kinda the point of the contest. Well done to all who entered, and especially to these finalists!

First, our thoughts on each of the finalist entries:

Codename: Hunter:

Monster Keep — Re-vamping an old design

My latest artist has finished the NEW Logo for "Monster Keep". I love the new logo... I think it looks pretty cool! I think Madison did a wonderful job in bringing to life a "mock-up" that I had designed. Although she has a real busy schedule, I am hoping to sign her for the remainder of the artwork for the game...!

Some format issues:

  1. 15 Card Booster which includes everything (besides 1d6) to play.

  2. 2 Boosters for two-player game play...

My First Sellsheet

Book of Villainy Sellsheet v1

I needed to create a sellsheet for a contest I'm entering. I looked on the League of Gamemakers site for some solid examples, and did my best to replicate what I felt worked in the sellsheets I liked.

Here's a link to my sellsheet in case the image upload doesn't work:

Heroes & Treasure: Arena

Nothing playtested yet, but I've started working on a future M:tG-style game for kids 6+. I have a simple, ugly deck of about 100 cards in NANDeck.

Only one color of mana, which comes from Crystal cards. You start with one of these automatically, and can play more down. At the start of your turn, each of these generates a crystal (but doesn't store them, so you effectively lose unused crystals at turn start). Similar to "tapping" from a mechanic standpoint, but much more visual. Game will ship with a bag of crystals.

New Board Game Pieces - Tech Barricade

The Game Crafter - Board Game Pieces - Tech Barricade

We added the Tech Barricade to our Board Game Pieces Shop! They are made of plastic and serve as a high-tech security barricade in your RPG or board game. There is great detail on these pieces of terrain and we love how they can be used individually or in groups to make wider walls. The barricade has height of .72 inches, width of 1.93 inches, and a depth of .42 inches. (17mm Meeple included for scale)
