Duh.. it's effin uncool Deviantart doesn't accept an ä in the title!
Something I did last year... and I'm working again with these four this year which is effin cool. Mensch ärgere dich nicht is basically like Ludo- the board looks a tad different.
If you think the characters look strange... the final design of the board is this one:[link]
I wish I could have gone crazy on the background as well but the yellowishsomething color is the brand color but oh well. It was nice being able to draw something in my style for Schmidt and I hope it didn't scare too many parents off.
The game costs 4.80 Euro (6.38 USD) at the moment and comes in a metal box. The dice is made for kids with colors only so if you need a cute gift for little ones grab one as long as they stay at the low price.
Otherwise... I'm in board game craze... again...1 children game done, 4 to go and a lot of prototype testing ahead and I'm always wishing the cool kids games would be played more often by adults. Too much fun to miss.
Some other good news: The Carcassonne Winter-Edition will be released by Z-Man Games in the USA including the gingerbread expansion in the 4th quarter of this year.
