My husband has designed a board game that hits Kickstarter in two weeks. The game is Gartenbau and listed on www.boardgamegeek.com & Facebook www.facebook.com/gartenbaugame/?epa=SEARCH_BOX
You can shoot him a pm on either site. His name is Alex - tell him North Star on Atlas Quest sent you ;)

Yep, I’d try Kickstarter.

March 26!

Back story: A year ago, my husband was working on a game idea (worker placement/delivery) & plateaued. Frustrated, he decided to take a break from that game & work on a different game idea. He teamed up with local gamer & designer David from Fisher Heaton Games (Intelle) and Gartenbau began to take shape. It's an abstract strategy, tile laying tableau builder. Our son - age 10 - plays it, though I believe Gartenbau will be marketed ages 12 & up.

It's not an engine-builder like Century Spice Road or Splendor but that 'weight of game play' Check it out on FB &/or Kickerstater on 3.26.19 and thank you for your interest!

Hoooooly small world, Batman. David and I were pretty close friends years ago, when we both lived in NJ. In fact, earlier in this thread, I replied to CSK telling her that if she couldn't find any good advice on AQ that I would ask a friend for her. The friend I was referring to was David. :O !!!

Will you please tell him "Kitty from Qball" says hi? I could message him, but that would take the fun out of it ;) Congrats and good luck with the game!

A good friend of mine did this. I will private message you her information. She could probably answer your questions. Tell her "Rosemary" recommended her (not "Rosmarinus"-) she doesn't know about letterboxing!

If this is not the place from this, the moderator is welcome to remove this post.

My husband has co-designed a board game, Gartenbau. It's a light, Euro-Style tile laying gardening game for 2-4 players & we are looking to produce the game.
If you enjoy tabletop games or know someone who does, please share this link &/or consider pledging to our goal.

Thank you for your support.

Wow, this game looks really beautiful! I love board games, and I love gardening, so I'm sure it will be a fun game!

Unfortunately I'm not really able to spare the cash to back it on Kickstarter at the moment. Do you know whether it will be available for retail once the game is produced? I'd love to buy it in the future.

Per Kickstarter:
No one is charged until funding date and only if the campaign hits funding goal.

Assuming Gartenbau funds, it should be available through Fisher Heaton's website at a later date. As of right now, FH doesn’t have retail distribution. You can follow them on Instagram, Facebook, BoardGameGeek.com as well as fisherheatongames.com

I like both letterboxing and geocaching, but there are some times when directions are better than coordinates.

Exactly why I like to see a topo map before I head out to unfamiliar areas.

Well, I decided that for Father's Day I should be more supportive of my Husband's hobbies, since he is very supportive of mine. So now I'm playing Pokémon Go too. My trainer code is 7889 3091 4922, and I am HollyOfTheDwarf. I sent some friend requests to some of the trainer codes listed in this thread, but I probably missed some because the board is looking wonky to me today. If anyone still plays, feel free to add me.
