Button Shy Wallet Games: Stew & Arcane Bakery Clash

Enough about us. Onto the games!

First up is Jason Glover's Stew. Jason is the designer and publisher of Four Tribes, Dig Down Dwarf and Plague: The Card Game. We've been following and admiring Jason's work for years and we're excited to finally have the chance to work together on Stew.

 

One of the great things about Stew is that every turn matters. During your turn, or after someone else makes a move or adds ingredients, you can yell "Stew" if you think the recipe is just right.

Next up is Robin Gibson's Arcane Bakery Clash. Robin is the designer of our very own Starship Babel and Legends of Dsyx roll and write series. He creates unique print-n-play games and many can be found on his itch.io page.

Arcane Bakery Clash was a winner in our 2017 Wallet Design contest. The judges were enchanted with the "baking spells" theme, mixed with the way that the game integrated both memory and time management.

You may have noticed that both designers were also the artists this time around. It was great to see the designers come with a complete vision and ride that through to the final product. Both games really scream Jason and Robin.

What is the Button Shy Box? Here it is. It's been a long time coming. We ordered a handful last year as a test and had lots of interest. The box holds 18 (yes, 18!) of our little 18 card wallet games. We are only ordering enough to fulfill orders here, so if you want one, now's your chance. We will likely repeat this during future Kickstarters if it goes over well.

Here's a peek at one of the test copies (with "Collector's Edition" photoshopped on top by Josh Mills).

For $35 you can get Stew and Arcane Bakery Clash along with the box, and for $60 you can get our Instant Collection of Stew, Arcane Bakery Clash and 3 more games of your choice (see the wallet games at Buttonshygames.com). If you need suggestions, just ask in the comments. We'll get you setup. :)

UPDATE: These are now available for international supporters. These aren't cheap to ship, and we're charging the bare minimum that we can to make these exist, so there's no way to absorb any of the shipping. The good news is that is the cap on shipping, so if you want to add any additional games, it won't cost any more.

If you are a Board Game of the Month Club Member and would like the box, you can absolutely still get it. Keep an eye at Patreon or your email for details. :)

Here's how to add-on games:
  • Visit buttonshygames.com and add the games that you would like to your cart. 
  • Checkout with the coupon code FEBBACKER and you will not be charged shipping. 
  • In the notes section of your order, add your Kickstarter name and/or your backer #.

INTERNATIONAL BACKERS: If you ordering more than 3 games total, please contact me to arrange shipping costs as they increase after 8 oz.

Alternatively, you can order games using the code LITTLEHELP to save 10% and they will ship now.

Board Game of the Month Club

We have an awesome following of repeat customers. As a result, we've built the Board Game of the Month Club.

It's a subscription service where you receive unreleased microgames, promo cards, expansion content, and Kickstarter discounts.... every month. Supporters will receive from $1, $2, $5 to $10 off of EVERY WALLET GAME THAT WE MAKE. Here's a look at what we're doing right now:

And here's a peek at what's coming next month.

Risks and challenges

Releasing games each month has established a groove with the manufacturer. We rarely see delays on their end, but we can see delays before it goes to the manufacturer. We are spending time making sure the rules are 100% right and you will be invited to join in on that process.

With a lot to juggle and it being two people, we will occasionally see delays. A few previous projects were a little behind schedule so we've adjusted our schedule accordingly. Our last project is currently shipping right now, with 70% estimated to be sent in its intended delivery month.
