My House Burned Down

I had copies of Crazier Eights: Camelot prototypes and prototypes of a couple expansions to give to playtesters and reviewers, but I wanted to order some cards that were updated. I got them, but I was too busy to send them out to more than one person. Then my house burned down Tuesday night. I lost everything except some copies of the original Crazier Eights game I had published that were either in my car or at a storage location. You can still buy copies of Crazier Eights on this website here. Continue reading

Crazier Eights Kickstarter Campaign Will Start This February

camelotRight now the plan is to start the Crazier Eights: Camelot Kickstarter in February. It will feature many characters and locations from the King Arthur legends. There are a couple small things I want to fix about it still, and it is possible that the little rulebook will also contain some more details than it does currently. The Kickstarter campaign is a campaign to fund the game. If successful, people who contribute money are given rewards (copies of the game).

The current spoiler can be found here. The current logo I plan on using can be found below.

Some of the cards that already had an Arthurian theme have been changed, the card images of some cards have been changed to be more consistent with the Arthurian theme, some cards have been renamed to have an Arthurian theme, and some cards were replaced to have more cards with the Arthurian theme.

Ideas for the Kickstarter Relaunch

crazier branding betaOne of the questions is what I did wrong for the Second Edition Kickstarter, which is highly related to the question about what will be improved when I decide to try again and re-launch. There will be more time to investigate what else can be improved, so this is just about what I know about at this point in time. In particular:

  1. The video wasn’t the best
  2. The following wasn’t the best
  3. The name might not be the best
