Dana Helps

How is your summer, guys? We are back from our holiday, so feel free to contact us any time from now. I brought some pictures of those games we took with us. No matter how many times I wanted to change the parameters of the game boxes, this time I really appreciated their small size. We could easily fit them into the suitcase and had plenty of room left for other (equally) important things. This is how Dana helped me during my work: … (I am going to share the photo series of The Mysterious Library and Under the Leaves  later). Enjoy your day!

Summer

Image
First off, thank you so so much to everyone who sent me holiday photos of our games “in action”! I appreciate it more than you know! In exchange, I made this series for you:... I ran to the garden when the first rays of sun popped up. The Lost Necklace was a perfect subject, it is magical to see the light dancing on the glass beads. :-)))) Ps: don't drop the beads on the grass otherwise you really have to find some helpful ants to rely on. :-D

Ed&Wolf in the cellar

Everybody seems to be on holiday, but we are still in the middle of the school closing week. I am looking forward to the long lazy summer days when we have more time to live and play. With this Ed&Wolf photo series, we say goodbye to the rainy weather, hoping that the Dutch summer will spoil us with a couple of warm days. :-) Thanks for Chummy Coffe Leiden letting me take these pictures in their basement! I can imagine how surprised they were when I chose the dark cellar for background over the homely furnished, beautiful shop interior. But somehow, I felt the link between the atmosphere of the game and that hidden room. After seeing these pics I hope they will agree with me. I am grateful for the opportunity for being there! Thank you, again guys, see you soon! :-) If you are longing for a good coffee in Leiden do not pass their door!

Once Upon a Rainy Day

Image
Well, hello again! I had been messing around with this post until the game – somehow – ‘became’ completed. I suppose witnessing exclusively the final, spectacular phase of the process is much more fun for you than following my struggles day by day. :-) So, here you are, this is our next game right before starting the production: We hope you will like its twisted (but simple!) logic and funny, colourful atmosphere! The game will be available (hopefully,) when you return from the summer holiday. Technical details: Age: 5+, Number of players: 2-4, Duration:15-20 min

Cats – The Beginning

Image
It took me for a while to discover how amazing creatures cats are. I had several surprisingly good experiences with them recently and after cat-sitting for a week, I helplessly fell for their funny character. In my case, it means that our new game is going to be about cats. I have invented two rather difficult gameplay during the last year so it is time to turn back to those rules that can be adapted easily and you don’t need to take a day off to learn them.
