My game Avignon, which took the Silver in the May 2014 BGDF Game Design Showdown, is getting published this winter by ButtonShy Games!

A fresh Print-and-Play is being pushed out this weekend in celebration of the Pope's visit to the United States (and in particular the publisher's home city of Philadelphia). See details here: https://boardgamegeek.com/blogpost/46165/experience-pope-home-weekend-av...

It's an easy PnP - two pages of cards and three pages of rules, plus an extra page or two if you want to download the alternate cards we're testing. It's Kickstarting in early 2016 as part of the Wallet Games line. Hope you check it out and enjoy it!

Very cool

And there is some LIGHT for all the people who want to design PNP-Friendly game! Congratulation on your streamlined design/packaging/product.

I am working on a "filler-type" game - and I can assure you it's tough to design "micro" games that captivate players and encourage repeat play.

Wish you much luck with the Kickstarter.
