The Kickstarter campaign for Tavarua is ending in three days, and I don't know if we're going to fund! I would really appreciate if you'd check out the Kickstarter page, check out the rules, or watch one of the sweet video previews, like this one from Undead Viking.
Greetings to all of you amazing Xia Backers! This is just a small update to let you know that I've just posted a new game on Kickstarter. It's completely unlike Xia - the theme is Surfing - and it's much more of a light game (30-60min), but I'm incredibly proud of it, and if you're at all interested in the future of Far Off Games - I implore you to take a look! :)
Tavarua is a 1-6 player competitive surfing board game. In Tavarua you are a surfer in a surf contest. You'll need to pick a board, paddle out, look for a wave, and ride it in to score points! You'll be judged on your best waves, the player with the highest score at the end of the game wins!
Thanks for your support, and until next time - I'll see you starside! :)
PS. Yes I am working on a Xia expansion - thanks for asking <wink>
First - Sorry for the delay in the updates! It's been a busy summer so far, I hope all is going well for you! Here's what's going on with Xia!
Print n' Play Mini-Expansion
I've been working hard to get the Print n' Play mini-expansion of three new ships ready for release next week! I'm at a pivotal place right now. The most difficult part of creating new ships is their special abilities. I want the abilities to be unique, and allow for some different play-styles, while not rendering other abilities useless. It's a difficult matter when you've already got 18 Abilities to consider!
So I'd really appreciate your help and input! Below I've posted 2 Abilities for each of the new ships, and a poll for you to vote on which ones you think are best! Also - I'd appreciate any feedback you have in the comments below!
Alright - now that you've seen the abilities - I'd really appreciate your vote!
I just wanted to let you know that the game you helped me make - it's doing well commercially! I'm proud to announce that the first printing of Xia has sold out (at least, I've sold out, some retailers still have copies in stock).
With this news, I'll let you know that I've been in talks with Panda about a 2nd print run of Xia, and I'm trying to decide what changes I'd like to make to it, so if you have any opinions, I'd really love to hear your thoughts! I've started a discussion thread on BGG here:
