The Game Crafter is Featured in Parents & Kids Magazine!
M. Scott Anderson found The Game Crafter website and created his own personalized board game. After going through the whole process, he decided to share the experience on his “Scott’s Toy Box” column in Parents & Kids Magazine. Here’s an excerpt from the article:
This month in the Toy Box I decided to do something a bit different. As I was looking around online I ran across a website called The Game Crafter. Through The Game Crafter, I was able to create my own personalized board game, and you can too!
Thegamecrafter.com sells self published games and game crafting supplies. They offer a variety of game pieces and parts that can be bought independently so you can create the exact game you want. They also sell blank cards and tiles in many different sizes. For those of you who are computer savvy and know how to work Photoshop, you can prepare files and upload them to thegamecrafter.com and they will print out a copy of your game. Prices vary depending on the number of parts and which parts you get, but the system is easy to understand and it’s easy to see which part is costing you the most in case you want to remove it. Now that you know where to get the parts for your own game, let’s talk about the kinds of games there are and how to create your own.

Matt Worden is featured in the July 2012 edition of Games Magazine! (pages 75-76) Matt has been a loyal member of The Game Crafter community since we opened our doors in 2009 and we’re really impressed with what he’s been able to accomplish. This interview is well deserved after his game, Jump Gate, was selected as the “Traditional Game of the Year” in Games Magazine. Not bad for a guy just self-publishing a game through The Game Crafter! :)
In the interview, Matt talks about the games he’s designed, resources that have made an impact on his game design approach, and the merits of The Game Crafter. (Thanks for spreading the good word about TGC!)
