About this project

 

Imagine you're at your favorite local brewery. What's on the game table in the corner? Old versions of classic games we've all played before. While still entertaining, this display of dated board games inspired a simple question: What does a craft beer board game look like?

Many months and pints later, we had an answer: CRAFT BEER THE BOARD GAME. A fast paced resource collecting game with a twist. First to brew 2 rounds of beers wins!

Draw a Craft Brewer Recipe Card to begin a journey into the essence of beer. Unearth Roasted Malts for your deep chocolate Porter, or barter for aromatic Amarillo Hops to complete your IPA. Level up to complete your Master Brewer Recipe, and win!

Each round of CRAFT BEER THE BOARD GAME provides unique gameplay. Event Cards like “Drought” dry up resources and will force players to find alternate means of production, while “Nitro Boost” will give your hard working beer truckers a free ride home.

A roll of the die not only determines your movement, but which resources will be available that turn. Scarcity breeds competition, and CRAFT BEER THE BOARD GAME is designed to rope everyone in for some home brewing and hop-blocking!

In each of two rounds, players hop-block and outmaneuver each other to collect resources for a craft beer recipe. These recipes celebrate the distinctive craft beers of the American craft beer landscape.

CRAFT BEER THE BOARD GAME is a lovechild of two divergent thinkers: Eric "Eggie" Foust & Collin Poseley. Eggie is a professional Artist and Graphic Designer, specializing in hand painted signs, pinstriping and illustrations. His long time work for Lagunitas and recent work with Sac Town Union and other Sacramento breweries has given him deep connections in the Craft Brew world. Collin is a craft beer photographer, videographer, social media strategist, and a Cicerone Certified Beer Server. His media production for New Helvetia Brewing Co., Monk's Cellar, Goat House Brewing Co. serves as a point of contact for the Sacramento Craft Beer Scene. They both have been riding the wave of the craft beer revolution as craft beer lovers.

This Kickstarter project is the culmination of hours of play-testing, card design, beer research and photography. But, it is only the start. We need your help to  make it happen! 

Our goal is to produce 2,000 copies of Craft Beer the Board Game and raise enough funds to exhibit our game at the biggest Beer Festival in the U.S., The Great American Beer Festival in Denver, Colorado.

Recipe Cards are either Craft or Master level

This first part of the plan is to make it affordable. We need to produce in bulk, which requires hefty tooling and start-up costs. 

Part two is all about spreading the word. We will use our Kickstarter funds to visit as many breweries, tap houses, and beer events as possible. With the help of you, our Kickstarter supporters, we will host Craft Beer Game Nights around the country!

Risks and challenges

Our Mission:

As a Craft Beer themed game company, we are combining years of professional experience in Art and Media to give something back to the Craft Beer community. Our first project on Kickstarter, we are committed to providing a quality game for our backers. Happy backers are our ultimate goal, so every time you reach out to us, you'll find a friendly team ready to help you.

Manufacturing:

There's nothing more important for us than getting your rewards delivered in a timely manner, and for that reason, we have spent the past months carefully planning this release to make sure we deliver all rewards in time. The game designs are approved to be printed, and all the rewards are designed and ready to be manufactured. Without any delays from the manufacturers the games will be delivered in March 2017.

Shipping:

We are committed to shipping our Kickstarter orders to backers from all over the world.

Risk #1 :
Making a board game look good at an affordable price.

No matter our demand, we are working with one of the world's top game manufacturers, with a proven track record of on time and on cost games. We will be shipping directly to donors from our Sacramento, California location.

Risk #2 :
Misspelling Important Words

We will enlist the help of Katie, Eric's wife and cruciverbalist, to proofread all board game designs.
