Along with 11 other designers, I was privileged to be invited to be a designer as part of ButtonShy Games‘ Game of the Month Club in 2016. This will be a subscription service through Patreon, where you can contribute $5 a month and each month, you’ll receive a new postcard with a game on one side and awesome art on the other side. The games (and the art) are inspired by this year’s theme, Cult Classic Movies.
The games will also require some extra pieces, but only ones that would be readily available, such as a deck of standard playing cards, a pair of dice, a few tokens, and maybe a pen and paper. You won’t need to keep a pile of fancy components around. And all of the games will come inside an envelope—not mailed as a postcard—so you don’t have to worry about them getting damaged in the mail.
Since this is intended to be sort of a surprise every month, I can’t really reveal any details about the game I’ve designed, or reveal the month or movie the game is based on. But I’ll say that the movie I chose was the first that came to my mind, so I’m really happy to get the chance to make the game.
I’m really excited to be a part of this, and if you want to learn more about the project, including a full list of designers and movies, you can look at this posted update. If it looks interesting to you, please consider supporting it on the ButtonShy Patreon page.
