LADDER 29 (A Card Game by Green Couch Games)

  • @mattramsey @andyjewett have either of you played mysterium? I have looked at it and it seems really neat but I don't think I know enough people that would be willing to play it to make it fun so I haven't invested in it.

  • @Stephanie-Hider Mysterium pretty consistently gets great reviews--haven't played it though. I've also heard the app is a very good version of the game. If you are on the fence about it you could probably check out the app (it's cheaper than the physical game) and play against the computer.

    I tend to not enjoy app versions of board games because I feel like it defeats the whole point of you know...playing with OTHER people in a room. But that said I do enjoy the Stone Age app and the Potion Explosion app.

  • @Stephanie-Hider I haven't played it yet but it is sitting in my "to be played" pile. Looks great and sounds fun.

  • @mattramsey Ya I think the board game would be so much more fun than vs the comp. but I don't know more than 3 people who might play and maybe once as a favor but not out of real enjoyment. I might look into hanging out at the board game place here and see if I can make some new board game friends heheh

    @andyjewett ya I love the artwork thought it looked neat like a better clue game and I loved that game when I was young.

  • @Stephanie-Hider A lot of people seem to describe it as CLUE meets Dixit (if you haven't played Dixit, it's a lot of fun).

    I have heard that the Mysterium app is actually pretty incredible, but haven't tried it personally yet.

  • Awesome! Ben & Matt seem like pretty cool guys from what I've heard about them.

    Great box--my only issue is that it's missing the "illustrated by" but, fortunately, it seems like the industry trend is tending toward adding that info on the front more and more. So maybe one day (soon hopefully) illustrators will get more credit*.

    *I'm not suggesting that YOU have any kind of sour grapes over that--just a personal opinion of mine and I've heard other designers express similar.

  • @andyjewett love this look. Some of the things I struggle with illustrating are sharp lines and things looking crisp and solid like this. Would be cool promotional, marketing and educational tool to produce a YouTube video tutorial of how you achieved the look of some of your favorite pieces. I would think you would get allot of traffic coming your way! Great looking work.

  • @mattramsey They have credited me a ton throughout the process and it will appear in the rulebook and the back of the box I'm guessing (I am the graphic designer so I can probably make that happen, heh). The Board Gaming Industry in general is full of great folks!

  • @Tyson-Ranes Thanks for the encouraging words! I have a Twitch Channel and a YouTube Channel, but I haven't really figured out a regular schedule yet... or what videos from me might look like.
