World's Fair 1893 Designer Diary

J. Alex Kevern enlightens us about his extensive process developing his smash hit game, World's Fair 1893. Take a peek behind the curtains in this delightful Designer's Diary!


"It's probably important to mention up front that World's Fair 1893 started as something entirely different. The whole process from end to end, inception to initial production, was about two years. It all started with a simple concept I call "stickiness". The idea is that on your turn you're placing a piece somewhere to take what's there (like in, say, worker placement), but then the piece stays there to score for other things.

It's time for Brick Party!

Brick Party is releasing to a friendly local hobby store near you on July 6th!
 

Are you a Master Builder?


Grab a partner and get ready to work together! Would you rather be the builder or the architect? What if you have to build with your eyes closed or using only one hand? Or if you must explain it without speaking? Can you still be faster than your opponents?

Brick Party is a fun and frenzied game of crazy building! Reveal the special rule for the round, choose your teammate, and get ready. Then grab the blocks and build the shape you choose faster than the others! And in the next round? A new special rule, new partners, and new shapes...for a game that will keep you on your toes!
