Unpub Mini Recap by Designing Cardboard

May 30, 2015 at Mox Boarding House

This past Saturday was a big day for indie designers in Seattle as Mox Boarding House hosted another day-long event featuring unpublished games by local designers. While ATBG were unable to attend the event this time, I heard from many of the attendees that this event was a huge success!

The full list of games that were demoed at this Unpub mini are listed on the Facebook event page and included many familiar names and Unpub “graduate” Vye by Sandhat games. You may remember that we reviewed Vye during the Kickstarter campaign and May 30th marked the game’s official release. Congratulations to the guys at Sand Hat Games!

Matthew Gravelyn gives his full recap of the event on his tabletop game design blog, Designing Cardboard. Matt’s site also offers advice for designers looking to create their own prototype and showcases his latest board game projects including Burger Dice and Angler.

Evergreen Tabletop Expo

If you missed out on this event like I did, don’t worry–designers and organizers are gearing up for the first Evergreen Tabletop Expo in Tacoma on June 20 hosted by Uncle’s Games, which will include space for unpublished games. General Admission tickets are just $10. Additional costs apply if you want to attend any of the regional game tournaments. For more information on the convention, the schedule, etc, visit the convention’s official webpage. We hope to see you at many more game events this summer!
