The new SchilMil games under development have moved closer to realisation. Testing and blind testing has proved that we have got two very fun games to unleash:
Granny Wars: a game of Tit for Tat is a fast-playing card game of secret identities. We’ve commissioned artwork and are planning the PledgeMe* campaign to start later this month. One of the reward levels will allow you to honour your Gran or Granddad by having them caricatured on a card in the game. Plus there will be lots of other exciting options too. Watch this space for full details.
Manifest – the game of shipping, cargo, pirates and other trouble at sea has gone through a multitude of changes since its first inception over a year ago, and is getting rave reviews from testers. This one is going to take longer to work up due to the larger scale and complexity of components. As a start we’ve made an agreement to work with Franz Vohwinkel, an experienced board game artist who has worked on hundreds of games, including classics such as Settlers of Catan.
Closer to now, we’ll be showing our wares at the NZ Spring Gift Fair at the ASB Showgrounds on Sept 1-3. If you will be there, come and say Hi to us at stand 4040.
* PledgeMe is the NZ version of Kickstarter – here is a talk about Crowd Funding by its founder Anna Guenther.
