Guess a Number Game Results

Chad DeShon

A few months ago we ran an interesting online game.The game asked everyone to pick a number. Any number you want. And the winner would be the player who pick a number that wasbigger than 2/3s of the numbers picked and smaller than 1/3 of the numbers picked.You can get a little dizzy if you think about this. The strategy is simple. Think of the average number everyone else is going to pick, and then pick a number that is a decent bit bigger than that. Of course, everyone else is doing the same thing. So they are going to...


Making Old Games New Again

Chad DeShon

Man! Has anyone else noticed that board games have fantastic art and components these days?It used to be that when I saw a game with great art, I would instantly look into it in more detail. Now it seems liked at least half the games released are just fantastic looking. If I researched every eye catching game in my Twitter feed, then I wouldn't have any time left to write you these emails.This is where some of you old timers start to grumble. "Back in my day, the focus used to be on gameplay. Not all this froufrou. Just give...


The Used Board Game Market

Chad DeShon

* Right now there are two used copies of On Tour for sale on the BGG market place.* In the last 3 months, 21 copies have sold on the market place at an average of $40.We charge $29 for new copy, but I think some of those used sales include some additional player maps (which are $3.79 each, new).Why am I looking at this?... what do I care?... I sell new games, not used ones.I am a little obsessed with the used price of On Tour because I want you to be able to sell it. If you buy it and don't like it, I want you to...


Board games that are quick to learn, quick to play, but pack a punch

Chad DeShon

Do you love 3+ hour games? Here's my top 6 board games.1. Napoleon's Triumph (4 hours, 30+ plays)2. Haggis (1 hour, 15+ plays)3. Age of Steam (2.5 hours, 100+ plays)4. Indonesia (2.5 hours, 15+ plays)5. Die Macher (3.5 hours, 15+ plays)6. Maria (4 hours, 30+ plays)But it is really great to be able to get abrain twisting,meaty gamein less than 45 min.Learning Napoleon's is difficult. The first two times you play, you are just moving pieces around and seeing what happens. You aren't "really playing" until at least your third play. By this time you've invested 8 hours. I am so glad I put in the effort to learn it,...


The whole and complete origin story of The Jasper

Chad DeShon

The Jasper started on Kickstarter on September 10, 2018. But we've been working on it a lot longer than that. Would you believe it started back in May 2017?Books, board games, tables, any product you can think of. If you ask the author/designer/producer, they are never finished. They are just released. You get to a point where you are happy with the product and you start selling it to people. But your mind never stops. You are always thinking of how to make it better. Then you start getting feedback from your early customers. And it fans your inner creative flame.You could say...
