Cracker Kickstarter 225% funded!

On Monday morning, the Cracker Games Kickstarter campaign went live.

Six hours later, the campaign was fully funded.

By Tuesday morning, the stretch goal had also been reached.

Now the campaign is 225% funded and the pledges keep rolling in. Plus it’s been singled out by Jessica Fisher at Gameocity as one of their Top Five Kickstarters of the Week.

Two new videos about the Cracker Games have also come in from reviewers (see below).

Don’t miss out! Get yours before the campaign ends.

Guardian Article

This week The Dark Imp was linked in an article in the Guardian, One, two, free. 25 brilliant ways to escape 2020’s groundhog days.

Play a socially distanced board game

It’s not easy to find activities to do while you stay two metres apart from your friends and family. A socially distanced board game means each person gets their own scorecard and dice, rather than sharing a central board. It’s a way to meet up without getting too close, and offers an alternative to a picnic or BBQ. For those who don’t feel ready to see others or are still in isolation, there are also Zoom options.

They article, of course, is referring to our ‘roll & write’ games – Mini Town and the Placemat games.

It was great to talk to Lizzie Cernik, the journalist who wrote the piece.

Coaster Games Review

The Coaster Games have had a review this week on the family travel blog A Little Bit Social.

With everything going on with the Coronavirus right now, it was nice to do something different. We often find it hard to sit down and play games, we spend time watching television, and there has to be a limit on the amount of screen time! I wasn’t sure what to expect, I thought how do you play games without tokens, dice or counters? So it is a well thought out process by Ellie as it really works!”

On the Radio

On Wednesday, I was interviewed by Clare Sherman on the afternoon show on Wycombe Sound

We talked about the benefits of playing games as a family, how parents can get started with board games and, of course, the Cracker Games.

Have a listen.
