I ordered a test print of the Chickenfox Derby game, just in time to take it to Geek Girl Con! It arrived the other day and I am really pleased to share it with you now:
Up until now, the Chickenfox game has been a bunch of hand-drawn cards tucked into card sleeves with old bicycle playing cards as support behind them.
Now, the game is one step closer to being real!
I wanted to have a playable set to take to conventions and playtesting nights, and have a reproducible set to reduce the risk of losing any of the original cards. I had to rush to get it printed in time, so this prototype has the original art, enhanced with fresh layout linework and text using a font made from my handwriting. The game also fits in a much smaller box when printed, which is very helpful!
There are a lot of things to tweak; a lot of text, rules, designs, and artwork to finalize, but it’s so satisfying to see the game progressing past a dream and into reality.
If you’re going to Geek Girl Con this weekend (October 8-9 in Seattle) please find me in the Gaming basement and give it a try! I’ll try to tweet my location on Twitter to make it easier to find me.
