Wooden Insert & PAX Unplugged
There have been a few suggestions for a custom insert of some sort for Pipeline. We absolutely agree! We have enjoyed a great relationship with Meeple Realty since our first title in 2016, Arkwright. Meeple Realty, a manufacturer of gorgeous wooden inserts, tailors each of their designs to best fit the functionality of storing, setting up, and tearing down the game. We have already been in discussions with Meeple Realty -- they are designing an insert for Pipeline! However, the problem lies in international shipping -- it makes this wooden insert cost prohibitive for a majority of you.
I talked with Tommy from Meeple Realty last night and they are excited about Pipeline and want to investigate the possibility of offering their insert as part of the post-Kickstarter pledge manager. This is where we need you and your valued feedback!
Below is a link to the survey (in similar fashion as the Metal Cubes survey) to help us better understand and prepare for the logistics with this potential offering.
PAX Unplugged - Booth 2648
If you're attending PAX Unplugged this weekend, we hope to see you there! Our booth is located near the Tabletop Freeplay area at #2648. We will have Pipeline there for demo as well. Additionally, PAX will have their staff demoing a few copies of Pipeline in the First Look area! There will be plenty of opportunities to play Pipeline at PAX!
For the ultimate experience, be sure to stop by our booth from 2 - 6PM on Saturday to get play Pipeline with Ryan Courtney!
Board Game Revolution Playthrough & Ryan Courtney AMA
Board Game Revolution did a live playthrough and Ryan Courtney did an AMA (Ask Me Anything) at the end. Check it out here:
We have partnered with Brain Crack Games to produce Ragusa in North America! From acclaimed designer Fabio Lopiano (Calimala) players will build the city, its walls, and make use of its growing economy to find their fortunes! The Kickstarter is live and is nearly 200% funded!!
Ragusa is a medium-weight worker placement game that plays incredibly fast. The turn-by-turn gameplay will feel instantly familiar to players: place houses between spaces and gain access to the resources or actions that those spaces represent. But Ragusa has a trick up its sleeve -- spaces reactivate the houses around them, whether they belong to you or your competitors. This ensures players are always engaged and gives weight to your choices early in the game.
