About

Game in play.

Mosaic

Mosaic is a game where 2-6 players stagger and stumble their way through a tile-based maze. First one out is the winner and shall be crowned ruler of the Minotaurs. 

The labyrinth is ever changing; tiles turn, shift and change completely. But fear not. Players can find secret doors, become ghosts, and even reshape the maze to their will. 

The game can be setup a number of different ways. Each format changes the number of players and average play time. Each game lasts about 30-45 minutes. 

The game is an act of madness that kept me awake at nights. Finally, I printed, glued, typed, designed, (and freaked out the wife) but the game was made. It was an ugly duckling. With the help of talented play-testers Keith Hale and John Mixon, the rules were streamlined. Keith Hale would go on to create the logo with its Split "M". Some time later Daniel Orges, Jeweler and jack of all trades, agreed to tackle the rest of the design work. 

Mosaic has long been a favorite game for family and friends. I feel the time is right to offer it to the world. 

Risks and challenges

1) First timer. This is the first time we have done anything like this. The game has been played over 100 times. The rules are sound. The production company has been chosen and prices verified. But we honestly don't know what we don't know.
2) Production. The vast majority of the design work is complete. We are still finalizing the box size and should have that designed before the end of the campaign.
3) Time frame. Production should take 2-3 weeks including shipping time to us. Based on the number of rewards our time to ship to our backers can be anywhere from a long weekend to a couple on months. We are working with a local company that has shipped domestically, so we are not completely lost. We also have lots of friends that are excited to see this launch and have offered help as needed. I expect we will be able to get everything shipped within 120 days of us receiving funds.
4) Chaos. Life with a 1 year old may add unforeseeable chaos that may delay production. We do have extensive backup in place to deal with most similar issues.
