Pint Craft brings the joy and passion of craft brewing to a competitive card game format.
This is a video I have wanted to make for weeks. While the vision of Pint Craft has remained the same, the rules of the game have changed over the course of the past six months. The video shows the fifth iteration of the game’s rules.
The biggest change to Pint Craft is that beer recipes are now drafted from the center of the table. Brewers can make any of the beer styles that are showing as long as they have the necessary ingredients. With non-proprietary beer recipes, the dynamic of the game shifts between rounds as different sets of recipes become available.
Pint Craft is nearly ready for wide distribution! I am working with a publisher to get a prototype of Pint Craft using die cut cardboard for the ingredient tokens. This will substantially reduce the price to print the game. If the prototype looks good then I will use one or two methods to bring the game to market:
- Kickstarter – a crowdsourcing platform that many game designers have used successfully
- Microbreweries – custom skinned games based on a brewer’s brand and styles of beer can be created for small print runs
