Current Projects / Looking for Publishers

Current Projects …

Ships on ChipsWith most of these games in-the-works, I would LOVE to find a publisher home for them.  If you are a publisher and are interested in trying any of these out, please e-mail me for a review copy of the game.

This page will list my current game projects and the most recent posts about them. Click the project name to get posts just about that particular game.

The Projects …

Abbottsville – a light Euro-style family game … 2-6 players, 60-90 minutes … Set in the mid-1800s, players take on the roles of settlers of a new village on the western grasslands. Venture out into the surrounding wilderness to find new areas, collect goods, defend against predators, and return to the village to gain rewards for your explorations. Game involves action selection, dice-rolling, pick-up-and-deliever, and character cards with unique abilities. After testing this at Protospiel-Michigan in July 2014, a number of major changes will be coming. However, if you’re curious, you can read the original rules here: Abbottsville Rules Booklet (66)

Magistrate, at Ben's House, July 2013Magistrate – a heavy, full-faceted strategy game … 2-4 players, 90-120 minutes … The King is looking to appoint a new Magistrate to run the day-to-day operations of the kingdom. Players are provincial Governors looking to catch the King’s eye for that appointment. The Governor who makes the best use of his/her People, Militia and Agents will be first in line for the new job. Click here for the Grand Overview.

Thunder Run to Gratis-3, Beta Prototype, End Game LookJump Gate: Colonies Expansion – 2-5 players, ~60 minutes, deck building, economy building. Expansion to Jump Gate, and second in the trilogy. After testing the initial ideas at GenCon 2012, I’ve started over with a much bigger picture in mind. 😉

Thunder Run to Gratis-3 – 2-4 players, 60-90 minutes, card management, tactical battle/race. “Thunder Road in Space.” This is undergoing some major changes, but if you’re curious, you can read the original rules here: Thunder Run to Gratis-3 Rules Booklet (110)
