Montage - the best 4 player word game of all time

Gryphon Games is pleased to present its first Kickstarter project, the board game Montage by Joli Quentin Kansil. Montage is a very highly regarded 4-player word game that was first published in a limited edition by Gamut of Games in 1973. Copies of Montage are rare and they have sold on the secondary market for $150 or more. The game currently enjoys a 7.71 rating on Boardgamegeek, and has been described by reviewers as “brilliant”; “outstanding”; and “incredible” -- as well as “really fun”.

We are presenting Montage as a Kickstarter project in part due to its unique nature. The game has a devoted following, but it is hard to determine how big that following is. We felt that a good option for this particular game was to have the different participation levels that are popular here on Kickstarter, but not so typical in a game print run. The funds collected via Kickstarter will go entirely to the production run of the game.

As you can see from the video, the graphic work and production prototypes have been completed. For those of you looking for a novel twist on a word game, Montage is a game with excellent replayability that will please a wide range of word game fans. We are excited about the opportunity to bring this excellent game back in to print, and we appreciate your support!
