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.

If you like what you see please head over to the Tavarua Kickstarter page and back us!

This is the last post about Tavarua - the next update will be Xia related! Until then, I’ll see you starside!

New game on Kickstarter: Tavarua

15 likes

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 Kickstarter Now Live!

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! :)

Cheers, -Cody

PS. Yes I am working on a Xia expansion - thanks for asking <wink>

Print n' Play Mini-Expansion Update w/Poll

Greetings Backers!

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

Just got the 3D prints from Shapeways! Going to paint them this week!
Just got the 3D prints from Shapeways! Going to paint them this week!

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!

Vagabond Ability: Option 1

2nd Printing

A short update on the 2nd printing of Xia: The second printing of Xia is actually just wrapping up now, it should be done soon - if any of your friends are waiting to get their own copy!

New Games

I'm currently hard at work on a few new games! My goal is to turn Far Off Games into something I could do full time for the foreseeable future. 

The first one coming up is a game I made for my dad for Father's Day. Dad's been a surfer for 40+ years, so the theme was pretty easy to come up with :) We've been having lots of fun playing it.

I'll have more details about it in the upcoming Far Off Games newsletter - you can signup for the newsletter here:

Conclusion

Thanks so much for being a part of Xia! I'll update next Friday (July 17th) with the release of the Print n' Play mini-Expansion! Until then, I'll see you starside!

Cheers, -Cody
