      Got mine, and have done a few test plays - posted rules questions up on BGG.

      Got mine! The components are beautiful.

    3. James Auwaerter on April 13, 2013

      Mine came today as well. Looking forward to getting some folks together to play it. I did have a couple of rules questions - should they be posted here?

      Have the games shipped out yet, or was the date pushed back?

      Hi SuperG ,
      The final tokens will be a heavy duty cardboard called XBoard, cut into penny-sized circles. The tokens will have double-sided printing and be easy to use. (I realize the PnP tokens are not very user-friendly. When I make demo copies I use a disc punching device I picked up from a hobby store - it makes the whole process much faster.)
      The final cards will be on a heavy grade of cardstock and should be able to endure a bit of dampness. (My prototype copy has been to several tables and survived occasional water/beer encounters.)
      Thanks for the questions!

    17. SuperG on November 14, 2012


      Can you give a bit more detail on what you plan for the componentry of the game? The Beer mob review mentions wooden tokens in the final game, but your how-to-play video suggests cardboard.

      I've made a PnP set I hope to play this weekend and the tokens were all marked as octagons with circle backgrounds. What is the shape going to be? (Cuttling all those octagons on foam backing was NOT the cards be coated or heavier stock to deal with any potential spills on the table?

      Good review of a prototype playtest of Pint Craft by a brewer over at BGG:

    19. Nick Helmholdt Creator on October 18, 2012

      Thanks for the questions Edward. My response is below:

      1) when do the recipes card refill?
      The game should end before all the recipe cards are all used. If no recipe cards are left then the game ends and the player with the highest number of victory pints wins.

      2) will the start player be changed?
      Not during the game. If you choose to play multiple rounds I would rotate the starting player.

      3) do the season cards come in the order, autumn > winter > spring > summer? If the starting season is autumn.
      Yes. You can start your game during any season, or simply choose the current season.

      Hi, I would like to ask 3 questions.
      1) when do the recipes card refill?
      2) will the start player be changed?
      3) do the season cards come in the order, autumn > winter > spring > summer? If the starting season is autumn.

    21. Nick Helmholdt Creator on October 17, 2012

      Christopher - I am planning to go with a "Bar Blade" style of bottle opener. These are the easiest for me to cut and etch.

    22. Christopher Sniezek on October 17, 2012

      If you're still undecided on the final bottle opener type or design, may I suggest a bar blade type? They're handy, durable, and have plenty of space for engraving/etching. A photo example:

      Can you post prices for adding additional copies of the game to a pledge? This is one way to get the pledges up and a number of successful projects allow adding extra copies, usually at a discount depending on how many copies are added. I would probably add 1 or 2 copies for gifts. Heck, in one recent project I pledged for 7 copies.

      The game looks great, Nick. Also, high-five from Ann Arbor!

      I suppose a CHEERS! is in order.
