Munich, Germany— June 14, 2019. Board game publisher Playford Games is raising funds for a mass-production version of the Ancient World Multi Game System, a collection of social abstract strategy games. Following the launch of the premium wood version at the Internationale Spieltage SPIEL in Essen, Germany last year, Playford is preparing a lower-cost version of the Multi Game System by using an alternative material.
“Our goal has always been to offer the Ancient World Multi Game System at a more affordable price for players. Sourcing the right material, however, took time. So I was very pleased to discover the printed chip. Not only are they very durable and light weight, the printing on foil produces brilliant images and a smooth finish. And of course, the price is also right!”, says Dave Stennett, President and Founder of Playford Games.
The Ancient World Multi Game System consists of double-sided game tiles which can be used to play up to 23 different social abstract strategy games. Each game draws its theme from a different civilization or event in the Ancient World, from Egypt and Rome to the Silk Roads of China. Awarding it the Seal of Approval, Father Geek and his team of child, parent and gamer geeks praised this collection as, “Good quality, outstanding rule book, and endless play… a great mix of abstract games that seemed to have something for everyone.”
The Ancient World Multi Game System launches on Kickstarter Tuesday,
June 18th to raise €16,000 for its first printed-chip production, to be delivered by the end of 2019. Backers can choose from four pledge levels, plus special offers for retailers and game cafes.
