Two updates for you today. The first is about the contest I won with a friend of mine, Don, from Toy Vault’s PiecePack competition. We submitted the rules to a game we designed using a specific set of components that we called Cream of the Crop. The top 5 games were chosen to be included when the game was released – and our game was chosen as one of the five! We hadn’t heard from them all year – but today I got a response back from an email I sent that said that it had been back-burnered for awhile but is still in plans to hit the stores this coming year! They are targeting a second quarter release. Yay!
The second update is that Gamewright has been reviewing the rules to our Jam Slam game (previously called Jungle Jam) and he expressed interest in playing a prototype of it after reading the rules. Now he did say he’s on the fence because he feels like Gamewright has a bunch of quick reaction games – in fact, when we pitched it we mentioned that this could be in the Slamwich family line – kind of like a spin off. But he wants to see a prototype to play it – so that’s always good news!
We have had recent thoughts about changing the theme of Jam Slam to a witches cauldron – and we might do it and send both in, just in case he would prefer that it was NOT similar to Slamwich.
So some great holiday news for us! Huzzah!
It’s possible that they sent out updates on the piecepack as a side effect of my poking him on BGG about it yesterday 😉
Sweet – thanks Andy – I’m sure that helped! I was wondering if the project had been abandoned but it looks like it’s back on track. This means I’ll have four games hitting the market next year – crazy!
