Buy the Rights Blog
Another week, another prototype. A few days ago I received another big package from PrintPlayGames containing version 2 of the Buy the Rights prototype game. This time it’s just shy of complete by about 30 cards, but I had this version printed on their linen card stock, which is very nice. I reworded a few cards and ordered bigger boxes that are closer in size to the final version.
I had a couple of family gatherings over the weekend and took advantage of them to get some big playtests in, and they went very well! We ran several games with a very diverse group of people and everyone seemed to really enjoy the game. I also got a very funny quote from my mother that I’m very tempted to use on the Kickstarter page:
Buy The Rights started as an idea last year, but I didn’t do anything with it until a few weeks ago. I had a few Google Drive spreadsheets created for card ideas but it wasn’t until I told some friends about the idea and got some encouragement that I actively started developing the game.
The wife and I had a game night planned with our friends and knew that would be the perfect opportunity to have our first mini playtest, so we quickly made up an ugly prototype using index cards, a label printer, and play money from an education supply store.
