Cardboard Edison Finals

It’s super-exciting to announce that one of my unpublished games – Down, Peasant! – has made it into the finals of the 2021 Cardboard Edison design contest.

There were around 250 entries and only 10 have made it to the finals. The prototype of the game is now at Cardboard Edison HQ in the US and ready for final judging alongside the other fantastic finalists.
