Infinite Board Game Review

Here’s more of an overview of a new game/book called The Infinite Board Game. It’s a re-release of the Piecepack system, which is a specific set of components that can be used to play…well…an infinite amount of board games. I created a game with a friend of mine, Don Kirkby and we submitted it for inclusion in the book – and it was chosen! Our game is called Cream of the Crop and the rules for it can be found under the FREE GAMES tab here on this site!

In the meantime – here’s Tom Vasel’s overview of the whole thing. While it’s not his cup of tea, he does think that it will tickle many people’s fancy!

It’s a Good Week: Game Featured in Upcoming Book and Godzilla Contract Signed!

Just got an email from Eric W Martin that he would like to include a game that I designed – along with friend, Don Kirkby, in an upcoming book and game package that he’s producing on a game system called the Piecepack.

pieccepackWhat the heck is Piecepack? Well, it’s an open source game system designed by James Kyle that allows people to make their own games using a specific set of components. Hundreds of games have been designed using this system and now Eric W Martin is writing a book about it – and including numerous amazing games that demonstrate its versatility and unique-ness!

The game Don and I created is called Cream of the Crop – which can be found for free here on this site! It’s a clever game that I’m happy will get played by more people!

In other news, Sen and I have received our contracts back from Toy Vault! We are now contractually obligated to make a Godzilla game! How cool is that? This is our first game that we’ve been asked to make by a publisher – and our first time working with an IP! We’re pretty stoked. We already have the core system working, but now it will undergo a million and one play tests and tweaks!

Stay tuned for more info on both of these projects as we develop them further!

New Free Game added!

CreamCrop-logoWe added Cream of the Crop to our Free Game tab above! This game was designed by Jay Cormier and Don Kirkby and won a contest by Toy Vault to come up with the best designs using the Piece Pack. Piece Pack, in case you’ve never heard of it, is a specific set of components that have hundreds of games designed using its components. Game design enthusiasts can create their own games using these pieces – and a quick Google search will unearth tons of great games!

You used to be able to buy Piece Pack – but now you can simply make your own pieces. All the info is on the Free Games tab above! Enjoy.
