Board Game Equity Pyramid

As I've gotten into game design, I've found many of the tools from my "day job" in brand strategy super helpful. I recently put out a poll to the game design community asking what brand strategy topics might be useful to them, and overwhelmingly the #1 request was for help clearly communicating the equity of a game to others. I mashed up a couple of brand strategy tools through the specific lens of board game design, and this is the result!



You can get a blank template for yourself right here. Fill it out (either for the board game you're designing, or for an existing game as practice) and post your results here. I geek out about this kind of marketing stuff, and would love to deconstruct it with you! What about the template is most useful? What's not useful? What's missing?

Play the Deck of Wonders Demo in TTS

Ahead of our Kickstarter launch on August 25th, I know people will be curious as to how Deck of Wonders actually plays. You can watch a demo playthrough or an explainer video (both posted below), or even read the rulebook , but there's really no substitute for jumping in and actually playing the game for yourself. That's why I'm excited to announce that the Deck of Wonders demo is now publicly available on Tabletop Simulator!!! Just follow this link to get the Deck of Wonders demo mod for Tabletop Simulator on Steam, and match wits against Cullin, the Spoiled Prince. If you're not familiar with how to get everything set up, you can use this guide . Good luck, and I hope this piques your interest to support the full game when it launches on Kickstarter August 25th! To hear me walk through the rules and mechanics, check out this video: To watch a full game playthrough of Deck of Wonders, check out this video: Click here to back Deck of Wonders on Kickstarter!

Card Art Evolution: Forest Troll

UPDATE: Since this article was written, Deck of Wonders launched on Kickstarter, funded in less than 2 days, and is now racing through stretch goals! You can check the Kickstarter page out here , and I've added the full, final art for Forest Troll in all it's glory to the end of this article. Enjoy, and you can check out a bunch more final card art here ! I've taken a very iterative approach to developing Deck of Wonders, and card art has been no different! Below is the journey of one card's art over the course of development so far. Forest Troll is one of my favorite cards in the game, and its art (at all stages) has become a kind of avatar for Deck of Wonders. I'm sure it will evolve even further before the game is released (e.g. the card template is obviously still in development), but it's really fun to look at how it's evolved over time! Let me know your thoughts on where Forest Troll and the card template should go from here, and let me know if you
