Micro Game Challenge Sponsors - Father Geek, All Us Geeks Podcast, and The Game Crafter

The Game Crafter is pleased to announce that the semi-finalists for the Micro Game Design Challenge have been revealed. Our judges are now narrowing down the list of 3 to 7 finalists.

Micro Game Challenge Entries: Let The Voting Begin!

The Micro Game Challenge - Presented by Father Geek, All Us Geeks Podcast, and The Game Crafter

The Game Crafter has received 129 entries in the micro game challenge and that is a new record! It is now up to you, the community, to narrow down that giant pile of games to a more manageable list of only 20 semi-finalists for our judges Cyrus (Father Geek) and Jeff (All Us Geeks Podcast) to paw through. You have until the wee hours of next Monday morning (noon UTC) to get your votes in. Go vote today!

PS:
You may vote for as many games as you like, but only once per game. The votes cost 10 crafter points each. This spending of crafter points helps ensure we don’t get a lot of undue out of community influence on the results.

Game Designer Rewards

Designer Rewards Program - Available at The Game Crafter

The Game Crafter is pleased to announce something unlike anything we’ve ever done: Designer Rewards.

Designer Rewards is a new program we’re offering that gives you better discounts and royalties on any games you buy or sell from us. Essentially, the more you sell, the more profit you’ll make from your games.
In a nutshell we take a look at all the games you’ve either purchased or sold in our shop over the past 12 months, and then give you both a manufacturing discount on all future purchases and sales, and a royalty increase on all future sales.

The Game Crafter has replaced the outdated old cost estimator with a new version that is much more accurate. You start by going to our pricing page. Then click on the cost estimator button in the top right corner. Then you can enter quantities of cards, boards, tiles, boxes, etc. And at the bottom you’ll have the opportunity to enter the costs of any non-printed parts you want to add to your game, if any, and see a total estimate.
