Last night in chat we learned that TGC community member, Nephilim, has a son in middle school who created a RPG board game. Naturally, he created his game through our print on demand service and they were excited because the first copy arrived in the mail today! Most of you know what that feeling is like… The first time you get a copy of your game in the mail.. Exciting!
The Game Crafter staff absolutely love hearing stories like this because it’s super cool to see what kids (and their parents) can create with our service!
We plan to do a full designer interview with Nephilim and his son when they’re game is ready to be published on the site. But for now we’re just going to link to their photo gallery where you can see some pictures of the original prototype and how the TGC version came out! Give it a look and maybe leave a few encouraging words for a young and aspiring game designer! :)
Update: The 10” x 10” Game Board Is In The Lead!
As part of our Shrink Wrap Campaign on Indiegogo, we added voting perks that allow supporters to vote on what new custom printed product(s) we release next!
The voting will end when the campaign is over on April 11th. Here’s the current tally for votes:
- 10” x 10” Game Board - 8 Votes - Currently in the lead!
- 18-Card Booster Packaging - 7 Votes
- 4” x 4” Game Board - 3 Votes
So if nothing changes, the 10” x 10” Game Board will be the new product we release in April. But, there’s plenty of time left and votes are 3 for $50, 7 for $100, or $25 each. If you get a voting perk, visit the “comments tab” and tell us how you are voting. You can put all your votes towards 1 product or split them up.

We have received a ton of feedback and support from you about our Shrink Wrap & New Product Campaign on Indiegogo and we’ve made some changes so that it does a better job of meeting your needs! There are 18 days left so we still have some time to work together and reach all of the goals!
MANY of you have told us that you want to donate towards specific new custom printable products in this campaign and you don’t want to wait until they are stretch goals. So we have come up with a solution to allow you to vote for the custom printable product you want us to release next in April!
There are now 3 voting perks available and when you get these perks, you are able to submit your votes for which product is released next. The full details are on our Indiegogo campaign page.
