Life ain't that bad is it!?!

Flaming Troll Board Games is a fast-paced startup started by Mat Nicholas. Mat Nicholas is an experienced Game Designer of Video games and a game-lover who lives and works in Cardiff. We aim to make board games unlike anything you have ever played before that are not only super-fun to play, but also beautiful to look at. 

Making and playing the game

We've been working on Drunkgeon since late 2017. Since then, many evenings since have been spent drinking beer, testing versions of the game and generally talking about which beer is better. We’ve tried loads of different versions of the game, with lots of different tiles, doing lots of different things. Here's one of our early prototypes: 

The early days...

Why Flaming Trolls and why Kickstarter? 

We love games, we love board games, and we love beer. Games are great at bringing people together. If you go to a running club you're going to be running and not getting to know new people. Whereas with board games you have plenty of time to chat and get to know your fellow gamers. So Drunkgeon is about bringing people together for good times! Launching Drunkgeon via Kickstarter will not only allow us to manufacture the game at the quality and quantity we need but this is also the best way to reach out to you, the people we hope will actually play the game. We can't wait to send those Drunkgeon your way!

Timeline

We have our UK manufacturer lined up and we’ll begin printing the beer mats as soon as we’re funded. Here is an expected timeline from now until you get Drunkgeon in the post. 

• October/November: Crowdfunding
• December/January: Production
• February: Delivery of beer mats to our offices then we'll start shipping to you!

🤯 Thanks to everyone in advance! It's going to be a blast! 🤯

🍻🍻🍻 CHEERS! 🍻🍻🍻 

Risks and challenges

We have existing manufacturing relationships and understand the time frame involved in the production and we have chosen partners that are proven, reliable and capable of scaling up. We are confident that we will be able to deliver on time.
