About

 

 

Relive the fun of the Crane Games in this arcade style dice game. You and your friends compete with one another to try and collect the best toys. Once a player has achieved a set score, hidden goals are revealed and the player with the highest valued collection wins. This game features 6 custom dice and 72 unique toys with illustrations.

 Players all move a pawn around a central field of 36 toys. Each Toy Token comes in one of three types: Common, Rare, and Bad. Common Toys are the bulk of the game and are worth the pictured dollar amount. Rare Toys are score modifiers for the end of the game. Bad Toys are, well, they cost you points. There are also winged toys which grant you a chance at more with a little risk.

Greedy Claw gains its dice play from its Grip vs. Movement decisions. Majority of the Die Faces have both a Movement and a Grip value and you have to decide which you'll use for each of the dice.  Grip is necessary to pick up the toys under your pawn whereas movement actually adjusts the pawns location.

Greedy Claw Crane Game is a game for 2 to 5 players, ages 8 and up and is designed by David Sheppard. The game plays in roughly 30 minutes. Here’s how it all fits together.

Greedy Claw Crane Game is available world-wide and all copies will ship from various fulfillment partners in the US, EU, and China. 

Note to International Backers. You will be responsible for any additional import fees, delivery surcharges, etc. The low price point and box size should, however, be customs friendly for each package containing a single copy. Multiple copies may trigger stops at customs and additional shipping fees. Hopefully my many fulfillment partners will try and keep shipping cost low.

 

We have plenty of Stretch Goals planned for Greedy Claw Crane Game as we go over our funding goal. All Stretch Goals will actually add to all the versions of Greedy Claw. This makes the game as a whole better for all customers and it’s all thanks to you.

But who is David Sheppard, aka Sheppy? Well, I’ve been a regular game designer for going on 8 years and in that time, I’ve learned a lot. I’ve gone from a simple Trick-Taking Games (Imps vs. Puppies) and Word Games (Haiku: The Card Game) to contest winning designs like Pipville and Galaxy Dice. I’ve been active in The Game Crafter community and helpful to most designers I’ve met. I think I’m ready to self-publish and I hope you agree and help me along this path.

Risks and challenges

As a first time creator, there is certainly some risk. Having said that, I've researched what it would take to make this game a possibility. I've spent a lot of time preparing for this and I'm fully committed to making Greedy Claw Crane Game a reality. I value the trust I'm asking for and will do my very best to make sure it is well placed.
