Groves is a beautiful game designed by Steven Aramini and Dan Letzring, with artwork by Nolan Nasser, and published by Letiman Games. Groves had a very successful Kickstarter campaign, reaching a funding amount of $38,123 (433% of its goal) and 957 backers. This game recently began fulfillment to its Kickstarter backers, including me! I was lucky enough to own one of the prototype copies of this game and super stoked to compare it to the final production copy. Now that I have both in my possession, I can do just that! Without further ado, Before and After: Groves edition.
In episode 25 of the TIGR podcast, Chris talks to game designers about how to create and design expansions for their successful games and the challenges in doing so.
Tom chats with TIGR’s very own, Dan Letzring, about his recently, Kicstarted game, Groves.
Today, Fairway takes a look at Letiman Games’ newest Kickstarter and expansion to the hit game, Dino Dude Ranch: Hatchlings.
Board Game Geek (BGG) is a fantastic site but most creators that use it have a love/hate relationship with it. The site has a lot of users, is a fantastic resource for all things tabletop, and is a great way to spread word of your crowdfunding campaign. However, although useful, the site is archaic and can be troublesome to navigate, especially for newer users.
In today’s post, Dan goes big data. He analyzes board game projects over the last 18 months to test the common wisdom of how most project funds.
I recently concluded my Kickstarter campaign for Groves. During this campaign, I found many ways to help spread word about the campaign but what surprised me the most was how interactive people were with our Tabletopia version of the game. I expected potential backers to be interested in the prospect of playing the game digitally but I did not realize how many would actually play it. We were lucky enough to get data directly from Tabletopia and this post will dive into all the juicy details on how Tabletopia helped drive interest to our live Kickstarter campaign.
I’m BACK! And now a proud member of The Indie Game Report network. This time out I’m talking to Steven Aramini. Steven is the hot designer at the moment. He just had TWO successful Kickstarters (Barker’s Row and Circle The Wagons) and two more going on right now (Groves and Coin & Crown). Steven and I have a real nice talk about those games and some of his game design philosophy. I hope you enjoy it.
