Lap Dance is a game designed by Anastasios Grigoriadis and Panagiotis Tsirogiannis. In Lap Dance, 2-4 adult players compete in getting the job position of "Club Manager" in the most prestigious strip club in town. To achieve that, they will need to make sure each customer walking in to the club leaves with a big smile on their face. Each customer has different desires (Dancers, Drinks and various Luxuries) and places a number of orders. Players try to fulfill those orders as well as possible. To achieve that, every player has access to different dancers, drinks and luxuries as well as the help of a personal assistant. If things get rough, favors can be asked from other Staff members of the club.

The Game has been marked as 18+ only because of its theme. It contains no nudity. The artwork is limited to sexy outfits.

Lap Dance is a very unique game. It has some Euro-style mechanics combined with dexterity and role-playing. You can check the result in the following gameplay video.

The following gameplay video is in Greek language with some parts being explained in English. We suggest that you first watch the review videos and read the rulebook to have a better idea on what's going on. Powered by epitrapaizoume.gr

Our main goal is to gather $10,000 that will allow us to make a print run to cover demand from those who didn't visit Spiel 2014.As soon as this goal is reached we have a number of stretch goals planned through which we will be offering additional game material to those who support us. This material will be offered for free to all backers. Any remaining quantities may be later on available to acquire at a cost.

  Lap Dance was released on October 16th 2014 at the Spiel fair in Essen-Germany. Artipia Games brought a limited print run to Essen. The game was sold out one hour before the fair ended and was very well received. This encouraged us to do a larger print run of the game to cover demand from all those who weren't able to attend Spiel 2014.

Please keep in mind that we currently have no plans on doing wider distribution of the game outside Europe. At the moment, the only certain way to acquire this game if you are in the US/Canada and other outside Europe countries is through this campaign.

 Lap Dance is a pretty unique game and it's definitely not for everyone. 

  • If you would like a lighthearted fun game that would brighten the mood and offer you some good laughs, then this is definitely a game for you! Also, you always have the option of ignoring the FUN rules and enjoy a more meatier game with more strategy.
  • If you feel "weird" about the game's theme this game is probably NOT for you. :)
  • If you are looking for a heavy, deep strategy, important decision making game, this game is probably not for you. Artipia's catalog already has plenty of other options for you :)

Read the rules, check the videos, make sure you understand what the game is about and make up your mind. We appreciate your support and most of all we want you to like the game.

When our campaign ends, you will receive a survey through which you will be able to tell us which items you would like to receive for the amount you have pledged.

 Why isn't Archon: Glory & Machination, New Dawn, Drum Roll or Briefcase available to order as extras?

The games currently available in the Extras section are the only ones that can be sent in the same group shipment as Lap Dance due to weight limitations. You can always order those games through our online store.  

Can I order extras such as sleeves, tuckboxes etc for Among the Stars or Shadows over the Empire through this campaign? Unfortunately no. We are trying to keep the logistics of this campaign to a reasonable level. You can always order these from our online store.

 Lap Dance is scheduled for production in December-January 2014.

Please note that the published product may have differences regarding sizes, quantities, colors or layout because of production limitations and/or adjustments. 

Backers should be receiving their order within February 2015. We will do everything in our power to deliver your orders sooner than February 2015. Although we state February 2015 as the estimated  delivery period, there is always the chance of the production/delivery process getting delayed for various unforeseen reasons.

Our current shipping solution DOES NOT offer tracking. From past experience we already know that the % of lost items is VERY small. However, if you require tracking for your order, please contact us and let us know. Please note that you will be requested to pay additional shipping costs since your order will have to be handled separately from our group shipping solution.

Almost all orders will be shipped from Greece. If you have any concerns regarding customs and import taxes for large cost orders, please contact us at support [at] artipiagames.com and we will assist you on that.

This campaign is EU Friendly.

NOTE: We've been having tremendous delivery problems with games shipped to Brazil. For that reason we are forced to exclude delivery to Brazil from this or any future campaign. If you would like to place orders from Brazil, please contact us to arrange shipping. Please note that additional costs will occur in order to make sure your package is handled correctly by the Brazilian post office. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Risks and challenges

The production and delivery of our New Dawn campaign is on schedule. All game will be sent out within November 2014 as stated. Backers who selected to pick the game up from Spiel 2014 have already received their copies.

PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY BEFORE PLEDGING ON THIS CAMPAIGN.

PRODUCTION RISKS
Even though we do our best to ensure a quality product and a fast production, there is always the risk of delays. Supplier shortage, holiday traffic and weather conditions are just a few of the reasons a production could be delayed. Artipia Games should not be held responsible for delays caused by third parties. In addition, some of the items shown might differ from final product due to supplier/manufacturer error.

MISSING/DAMAGED ITEMS
When dealing with a large number of orders, there is always a chance that errors will occur. If after you receive your order, you find out that there are items missing, please contact us at support [at] artipiagames.com and we will send you the missing items as soon as possible.
If your package arrives damaged, please take a few photos of all damaged items and email them to us at support [at] artipiagames.com . We will send you replacements for the damaged items as soon as possible. Our previous packing solution was over 99.5% damage-proof. However, there were a few cases where the packages were hit so hard that damage was caused to the games’ boxes. Replacement were sent to the backers who received damaged boxes. The games shipped through this campaign, will be sent out in a larger and stronger package which will better protect the contents against such damage.

DELIVERY DATE
Our current estimation for delivery is February 2015. We are optimistic that this campaign will be delivered sooner than that. However history has shown that no matter how well you plan things, there is always a chance of delays caused by third parties. Please understand that we want your orders to be delivered quickly as much as you do. Please note that some of the promo material may be delivered separately in a later date due to production time needed.

UNDELIVERED ITEMS
If a package is not delivered due to a backers fault (wrong address given, backer didn’t claim the delivered package from their post office, etc) , the backer may be requested to pay additional shipping fees for the item to be sent out again.

DELIVERY ADDRESS
As soon as this campaign is over, you will be requested to complete a survey through which you can let us know which items you have ordered as well as where you would like us to ship your order to. By keeping in mind that your order may be shipped sooner or later than the estimated date, please give us an address that will surely not change. (If for example you think that you may be moving to a new house around February, please give us the address of a friend or relative to ensure a successful delivery)

SHIPPING
Please read the Shipping section above.

ORDER FULLFILMENT
Please note that your order may be delivered in multiple packages. This is done due to weight limitations for group shipments. Each game or expansion ordered through this campaign will most likely be delivered on a separate package. Even though the items you ordered will be shipped at the same time, there is always a chance they will arrive to you several days apart. This may occur due to each countries postal service sort-and-dispatch system.

UPDATES
Through this campaign you may receive updates on Artipia’s other upcoming projects. Such updates will be rare.

BY PLACING A PLEDGE ON THIS CAMPAIGN, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE READ, UNDERSTAND AND ACCEPT THE RISKS & CHALLENGES STATED IN THIS SECTION.

Thank you very much,
Artipia Games
