Score some Crafty Products and Support the Cheese Weasel Kickstarter

Our friends over at Cheese Weasel Logistics have launched their very first Kickstarter project and we're a part of it. Full details follow but the upshot is that they run a fantastic Quest Game every year at Gen Con, and this year they're looking to expand that program with the help of a few sponsoring partners, like us. The various Kickstarter tiers feature products from their partners and can be acquired by folks going to the show and those who aren't, so even if you can't make it to Gen Con you can still get in on this great deal with any of our current print titles, including the full Fantasy Craft library and the brand new Mistborn Adventure Game


For nearly 10 years, Cheese Weasel Logistics has worked to bring the games and accessories of small and new gaming companies to your attention. There is incredible innovation out there and beautiful, fun, creative games that have the challenge of breaking into the strategy gaming industry and competing with the big game systems.

If you have attended Gen Con Indy in any of the last 8-10 years, you may be familiar with our ConQuest Game. It's a fun way for convention-goers to tour the exhibit hall and have many of these smaller, newer companies highlighted for them. Every year, we get hundreds of attendees who say they've never had more fun discovering and demo-ing games and finding gems they might have overlooked if it weren't for us!

At the convention, for every Quest Card you complete, you have a chance to win thousands of dollars of game products. We've decided to expand on the rewards from this program for both those of you who will seek us out at the convention and even for those who can't attend this year! For those going to Gen Con - think of this KickStater as a pre-registration with perks! You'll reserve yourself a set of Quest Cards and pick them up at the convention along with a package of games that you've already gotten a great deal on! For those not going - you don't need the Quest Cards and you can still support our program and your game collection with great packages of prizes. Most everything we offer is signed by the game designers and all of it falls squarely into our core mission - the promotion of small and new game designers with fabulous products that you might never have seen!

In the reward levels - you'll notice some where the package of goodies increase ($5, $10, $25, $40, $50, $75, $100 and $200). The ones in between those levels are the options for those who want that package level but won't be attending the convention and want it shipped to them. These packages will not have Quest Cards in them and will not be prepped for folks to pick up at the convention!! Also, because we can't anticipate how many backers we'll have - let alone how many will be on-site and how many will have things shipped - we've set the number available as best we can. There should be plenty for all, but we will keep track of those numbers as we go along.

Thank you for supporting the strategic games industry and keep paying attention to the new companies and the small publishers - you will find things you love every time!



Mistborn Adventure Game Update: Revised Digital Edition + Print Book Delivery Estimates

Crafty Games has an update on the Mistborn Adventure Game, the new roleplaying experience based on the best-selling novel series by Brandon Sanderson...

Since the release of the Digital Edition we've been hard at work updating the game to incorporate reader feedback, correcting small issues that cropped up during the design, and generally making sure the end product is the best it can possibly be. We're all fans first, just like you, and it's imperative to us that anything with the Mistborn name on it share the same quality, care, and majesty Brandon delivers in his novels. 

All direct orders have been updated now and a new version of the Digital Edition is live at both our storefronts. Anyone who’s previously purchased a version of the game that includes the Digital Edition should have received an email notifying them of where to download it. If you don’t see this email by early Saturday, June 2, please drop us a line at service@crafty-games.com so we can get it sorted. 

The new version of the Digital Edition contains many changes, a few large and several small, which we previously posted about on our forums. There's also an index (which we couldn't include previously because page pointers tend to shift when you're still making changes to a book), as well as an appendix that summarizes the core rules of the game without the walkthrough guidance. The novel characters section - Book 3, Chapter 8 - has been overhauled for easier reading and has the added benefit of being much more attractive, with full page art for most of the major personalities from the canon. 

All these upgrades have been folded into the physical editions of the book as well, and our printer has been working diligently to ensure the finished work enjoys the same high quality as the content (which again, we thank you for making so special). 

Anyone curious what the finished books will look like - at least partly - should visit our Facebook Page, where we've posted pictures of the proofs that we approved just last week.

So when will the books be in stores, and when will they ship to direct customers? Just last afternoon we received word that we should expect the softcovers back to us around June 18, with the hardcovers near July 9. Given the time it takes to gather distribution orders and ship product to stores, this means you'll see the game in your FLGS around the first few weeks of July (remember, only the softcover is going into stores - the hardcover is available exclusively from us).

Direct orders will be shipped as soon as we receive the books, and without the extra time involved in pushing product into stores this means direct order customers should see their books go out from us within a few days of the dates above. Shipping times being what they are, U.S. customers should expect their books in the mail within a week or so, based on their chosen shipping method, and overseas customers should add 1-2 weeks based on their location. You can find more precise estimates based on your location and chosen shipping method at the USPS Services page.

We will of course keep you all posted as orders are fulfilled, and we're also available for any questions you may have.  

So... to those of you who've already supported us in this wondrous new endeavor, we thank you! Anyone who's been waiting for concrete news before ordering, or who's now intrigued enough to jump on board, can place an order at the following link...
