  1. Thanks for the good wishes Barb. I really appreciate it! Definitely get in touch with DMG if you have an idea. I will say though, there was quite a bit of work on my end gathering iconography from the game, sending the icons in documents, and so on and giving them my ideas on the layout and such. Plus, I shipped them the physical game in a Plano that I had that was similar to the wooden box layout so they could see how it needed to be organized and how much space was needed for the components. It took me hours cropping images and such since I didn't have the source files, but I definitely wanted the icons from the game presented in the box. Also, I did get designer permission to use these sorts of things which may or may not be easy depending on what you want. But most people are cool if you just ask, and let them know up front that its just going to be a one time thing.
  2. If you guys haven't backed Egizia, you should consider it if you like games like Stone Age, but a step up. It's a classic euro that hasn't been in print for many years. The kickstarter contains the original game on one side and the new version with new mechanics. The retail will NOT contain the classic version. The price point is very attractive. I have a feeling people will be kicking themselves later for not backing to get the exclusive board and extras. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/strongholdgames/egizia-shifting-sands
  3. Guys....I have to say....Dog Might Games are truly the best. I mean, their products are one thing, but the PEOPLE that work there are what really set them apart to me. I think these are some of the best guys and gals in the world that I've never met. Here's the story....Awhile back I contacted another friend that I have never met, Richard Breese (designer of many incredible euro games) . Richard's games ooze charm and whimsicalness (not sure that was a word but it didn't tell me it was wrong so I think I'm good). Underneath the charm, are some of the most clever, tightly woven mechanics in game design. For those who don't know Richard is credited with creating the first worker placement game. Not only that, he is an active member in the BGG community and just is one of the coolest all around guys I've ever had the pleasure to converse with. Awhile back, he even contacted me to tell me that he was mentioning MY name on his newest game box with a link to my review of Keyflower. Keyflower is my favorite game of all time, by far. I literally think its an almost perfect design. I have played the game now 1500 times. Crazy right.... Well, back to the story...I contacted Richard to ask if I could have DMG make me a box for Keyflower. It should be stated up front that I specifically told Richard this was a one time box unless he ever wanted to contact DMG about pursuing other ideas in the future. He was more than glad to oblige, probably because I am such a big fan and I've been active in the forums, especially with my review. Dog Might worked hard on the box, especially Shane. I want to say THANK YOU SHANE. You are a master my friend and I don't say that lightly. You may think when I look at the box that I don't notice all of the work you put into that box, but I DO!!! Believe me, I do! I understand that the measurements involved in making such a treasured piece work so perfectly were probably a pain sometimes and you really did a perfect job on this. I want you to know that I notice all of the little details in your work. The cuts, the icons, the sanding, the finishing...its all perfect. I couldn't have imagined a better looking box. I was blown away Shane. You will probably not see this, but hopefully someone at DMG will let you read this. You have made something for me that I hope to pass down for generations. It's a timeless game, and I think my family will love breaking out the Keyflower box many times. The memories that will be at the table...and your box will be there. I'm gushing...people reading think I'm overdoing it but I don't care because I mean every word. Some people play a game a few times...move on to the next thing. I have 250 games on my shelf. I could get rid of 249 and never bat an eye. I love this game and I love this box you made to hold it. Thank you, thank you, thank you Shane (and anyone else that had a hand in making this). By the way, I appreciated your note, and if its not apparent, yes I do think the box is beautiful. Now back to why I said DMG has some of the best people in the world. DMG contacted me recently to tell me my box had been finished. I was super pumped. I had known they would get to it when they could...that was the understanding from the beginning as I made clear I was in no rush to get this box. Michael contacted me saying it was ready. I contacted him back saying GREAT! So EXCITED! CAN'T WAIT!!!! but...............my daughter had to have heart surgery the exact week he contacted me. Bills, bills, bills...yada, yada, yada. All of that jazz. I told them to wait on shipping it and I would pay them as soon as I could......They shipped the box to me anyway and told me that I could take care of payment later...to take care of my daughter and not sweat it. Now, I have bought a good amount of product from them and they know that I am good for the $ but STILL....what company does that sort of thing this day in age? It's so rare and uncommon. They have such an old school business style ...treat people like you want to be treated They even back products with their Kickass guarantee. And a guarantee is only as good as the word of person making the guarantee. I have surfed through hundreds of comments about DMG. Any time a customer is not satisfied, they work it out and make the customer happy. I have never read a customer say, "DMG didn't stand by their guarantee". They ALWAYS do. They have for me in the past when I wanted things finished a little better on a piece. I could seriously go on and but thank you Dog Might. You guys are the best. And just so everyone knows...the heart surgery went beautifully. Best doctor in the world and many prayers were answered. We are still working out bills and stuff but it was nice that someone was willing to do something so kind during such a stressful time in our lives.
  4. Wow...All I can say is that is SOOOO cool! Nice my friend! Some of the best moments in life are when things like this happen.
  5. Game related articles that is...
  6. Saw this article and thought I'd share. I love to read up on gaming. If you have any good links to articles, share them! https://www.washingtonpost.com/entertainment/how-dungeons-and-dragons-somehow-became-more-popular-than-ever/2019/04/18/fc226f56-5f8f-11e9-9412-daf3d2e67c6d_story.html?noredirect=on&utm_term=.0357fefb58ce
  7. Sounds excellent. Love how things interact. One of the best comments I've ever read about the game. I need to try this but the teach is so intimidating and in my group I tend to teach everything so I know I'd have to Really know my stuff.
  8. @tgpumpkin if we ever get together we should try Kanban. It's really good and you can choose to play with nice or mean Sandra (the boss). It has a cool corporate/car building theme. We really love it but you need to play with mean Sandra. I love his original Vinhos too! I tried to read the rules to learn Lisboa but couldn't wrap my mind around it. I'd need someone to teach me, but I think I'd love it.
  9. Anyone purchased the Shield with 8 wells? How do you like it? I am considering having a custom piece done and don't know if I should go with the 6 or 8. I know the graphics say how many tokens each hold but wanted some insight. I play mostly euro style games with wooden pieces. If I can make the 8 work, I'd rather do that but if they are REALLY small then I'd prefer just the 6 well. If you see this today please let me know your thoughts asap since the free ship is this weekend.
  10. Wow..what a nice piece. How do you guys stain without getting messy? Do you guys use small brushes on the edges first? I love that shade of blue...very nice.
  11. Barb....so sorry. I've been swamped at work. Been meaning to get with you on this. So what you do is go to the game page on BGG...I assume you have an account, if not you will need one to sell. Do the following in order once you go to the game page: 1. Scroll down about half ways. Look at where it says Buy A Copy...you will see ebay links and Amazon but right under that is the marketplace for BGG sellers 2. Under 3 listings that appear there you will see a price history button. Check that out to gauge the market. 3. One you do that...sell a copy...click to sell...make sure to include the shipping costs in the listing as well as the condition. Hope that helps! Any more questions just ask!
