Happy Holidays + Awards Season!
Hi Snail Lovers! We want to wish you a Happy Holidays and share some great tidings.
Since our launch in March 2016 we’ve had a Killer run and our inaugural game "Assassins of the Sea" was recently nominated for two amazing gaming awards:
First we’re nominated for the Best Table Top game for the 16 Bit Awards (Awards ceremony next week... fingers crossed!). This competition by Playcrafting in partnership with Parsons School of Design celebrates excellence in game development.
Second we’ve been approved as a competitor for the 2017 MENSA Mind Games taking place next summer! MENSA! MENSA! Think Trivial Pursuit, Apples to Apples, Taboo, and, hopefully in 2017, Assassins of the Sea will also bear the coveted Mensa Select® seal.
To roundout some of our highlights after our successful KickStarter Campaign (muchas gracias for all your support- especially Kickstarter support Duwayno Robertson, who took the game from NY to Melbourne and was featured on HGTV ), we have manufactured and sold our Assassins of the Sea game on Amazon, The AMNH museum store, and retail shops in five other states!
At its peak we were the number 23 best selling card game on Amazon Launchpad! And there’s plenty more to order as stocking stuffers for the Holiday season…
To close out our stellar launch year we recently made our appearance (around minute 16) on Tell me Something I Don't Know, the popular new podcast by Stephen Dubner, co-creator of Freakonomics. Spoiler alert …We won!! Our prized slime mold is growing well, thanks Stephen.
Thank you all for playing along and we can’t wait to show you our new games in 2017!
