We have just launched The Game Crafter’s Bargain Bin at https://www.thegamecrafter.com/bargains. Here you can find the best deals on The Game Crafter each and every day. The Bargain Bin includes:

New and Used Mass Market Games
New and Used TGC Games
Deal of the Day
Sales
Specialty Bundles

The games are coming from our own massive internal collection. These are games we purchased that there just isn’t room for in our library. Or games where we have duplicates. And you get to reap the rewards. Almost everything in the bargain bin will be over 50% off it’s normal retail price, and we’ll be adding new things every week, so check back frequently.

We now have 15mm x 4mm Discs in our online parts shop! They are made of wood, measure 15mm x 4mm, and are available in 7 colors. We continue to add more variations of the discs because they are such a generically useful piece to so many game designers.

Get them at https://www.thegamecrafter.com/game-pieces?q=disc%2015mm%20x%204mm&hPP=25&idx=products&p=0&fR%5Bdepartment%5D%5B0%5D=game-pieces&is_v=1

Our very own CEO of The Game Crafter, Jt Smith , was inspired to write this article about rules formatting after an experience at a game night with friends. Enjoy!

"Good formatting a rules document is just as important as good writing in a rules document. This past weekend some friends and I learned Fast Forward: Fortress, and it’s a blast of a game. I highly recommend you check it out. However, it has a fatal flaw in our opinion."

A game designer named Jenn Sandercock created a cookbook with 12 edible tabletop games. We think this is a cool new way to play and enjoy board games with your friends and family! #gamedesign #boardgames #boardgamedesign #gamedesigner #edible
