If you’ve ever sat down at a board game and thought “Nice game, but I could do better,” then maybe it’s finally time to put your money where your mouth is. Since board games are enjoying a renaissance, there really is no better time than the present.
While you might have an idea about a game, getting started with prototyping can be overwhelming. Fortunately, there’s a site that can help you develop a board game for a very low cost. The Game Crafter, the world’s first web-to-print game publisher, has been helping would-be game designers realize their dreams for almost three years now.
The site has helped to develop over 8,000 games, to date, and offers everything from playing cards and tuck boxes to foldable game boards and boxes for packaging. Just upload your artwork following their templates and pick your pieces and you’ll be ready to play your game, at home, in about a week.
Average games cost around $20 and there is no minimum order. If you choose to self-publish, you can tap into The Game Crafter’s audience of more than 10,000 members. (Talk about a great focus group!) Plus, the site sponsors great contests like the current RPG Challenge.
So, whether it’s a customized game only your family will ever play or if you have big dreams of winning the Spiel des Jahres, The Game Crafter can help get you started.
