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!
