There is, it's called Party Rush, and it's currently for iOS only. It is an early release and development is currently on hold while we focus efforts on the kickstarter but it is still a playable game! It's something of a Block Party meets Boggle. You can download it on the app store at https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/party-rush/id776346121?mt=8
Yes! You may want to check out the Loops and Neighbors section of the instructions for an idea of easier game modes, but don't stop there and don't discredit yourself! We know Block Party Classic can be difficult to pick up especially at first glance, but even friends of our parents who say that they "feel too old" or "think too slowly" eventually pick up the game and are partying like pros. There are many ways to search for parties and a large part of playing is discovering your own ways to look, you'll find your brain can do some really amazing things.
Yes. Our scheduled delivery is in November given estimates for manufacturing, freight shipping, and order fulfillment. If this becomes a problem we will be working incessantly to correct it and informing all backers immediately as new information arises. We're working with industry professionals with many years of experience producing similar products and believe the estimates to be correct, plus we've included some extra buffer just in case we hit a snag.
Since this is our first production run of Block Party we have decided to keep a narrow focus to make sure everything is high quality and arrives on time. For that reason we have put a hold on developing Block Party Minis, but stay tuned--we'll be launching those in the not too distant future.
Yes, to an extent. Early versions were not and we quickly realized from playtesting that being even slightly colorblind was a huge barrier to being able to play, so we went about selecting a color set which has since proven successful with myriad playtesters even in low light conditions. [Edit: during the launch party last night one of our friends it turned out is severely red-green colorblind and had difficulty differentiating the blue from black and magenta from orange, mostly on the empty shapes (notably the party was not very brightly lit). We will be working on this and updating as we discover what four-color set might work. In the meantime, people with colorblindness are advised to look at the tutorial and see if the colors work for them and we appreciate any feedback. The surest way for someone with colorblindness to play is with the monochrome, laser-etched set. In the future we may also research printing these with black ink only.]
If the final colors come out difficult for you to play, we will send you our deepest apologies and refund you the game provided you send it back to us.
