Designing board and other tabletop games is a lengthy and involved process. So we can’t talk about 2021 without looking back on 2020. First of all, we’d like to celebrate the games published by Birmingham game designers in the past year. These include:
The Pooper Heroes by Zsolt Batki
Looking forward into the rest of 2021, various members of the Birmingham Games Designers group have new games in development with definite Kickstarter plans for two of them, while a couple of games that were Kickstarted in 2020 will be published soon.
Solar Sphere (Dranda Games) by Simon Milburn and Ayden Lowther will be coming to Kickstarter in the first half of the year. This dice placement game is the second game in a series, following on from Solar Storm.
Deckchairs on the Titanic (Silver Birch Games) by Tom Holness is planned to go to Kickstarter in summer or early autumn of 2021. It is a themed abstract board game with a duration of 15-30 minutes.
