I’m a bit late on this one I’m sure, but it still deserves props for being so freaking awesome.
The Game Crafter is, essentially, Cafe Press for board games. In other words, you can upload your resources (art, rules page, etc.) and they will manufacture your game on demand. Awesome. You can also include generic pawns in 10 colors (and it looks like they’ve started doing some specialty ones, like soldiers), dice, play money, or poker chips. Cool!
Plus you get to keep the intellectual rights to your game, so you can do whatever you want with it later. And while they do take 50% of the profits, I’d say that’s not bad considering there’s no upfront cost, and if you get a better deal, you still own your game, so you can take it to somebody else. Neat!
Okay, so go make a board game somebody! Yay!
PS: Every paragraph in this post except the first ended in some sort of exclamation of awesomeness. This was not intended. Sweet!
