About

About us - Silversmith Games:

Silversmith Games was formed in July 2017 by Jeremy Rausch and David Atwater. They both quickly learned of their mutual love of board games and quickly formed a friendship that would become Silversmith Games. Both bring something unique to Silversmith Games. 

Jeremy loves board games, and has been part of the game testing community for five years, attending game testing weekends and game conventions, including Mensa Mind Games. Through these weekends he has a firm understanding of the current market for board games, including what the popular trends are, what works and what does not. 

David is a strategy game nerd and a game design enthusiast. He has been part of annual board game meet-ups and weekly game night groups for the past three years. He loves asymmetrically balanced games, and learning about new mechanics. He has 7 years of experience as a designer and entrepreneur working in 4 start-up ventures to date. He is perpetually working on a handful of projects and developing games. 

As Silversmith Games, they want to create unique, high strategy games that can play more than four players, and that can be adapted for players of all ages and skill levels.

The Postcards of Thanks!

Risks and challenges

Our artwork is complete, the rules are set, the game has been tested by many people and is a lot of fun to play. We have basic test copies from professional printers ordered to check everything before going to production. We will need time to check the test copies and make sure that all our specifications are met and that the game works in this version. Once all our details are checked we will go to our first production run and be able to deliver the game to our backers. We are being generous with the timing for production, giving ourselves six months. We aim to be earlier than this, but the one risk is that the test copies do not work for some reason or another. This will add time to production, but not stop it. We will keep all backers abreast of our progress and of projected shipping dates.
