Our First Print Of Sell Outs!

Cards from our First Print!

Our First Print!

After several months of work, and almost two excruciatingly long weeks of waiting, we have finally received the results of our first print! I used some placeholder designs I made in Illustrator, but guys, let me tell you, the product and feature cards are striking! All the designs still need some refinement and some branding, but I am really pleased with this first set.

Print and Play PDF!

Sometime over the next few weeks, I am going to make a Print and Play PDF available for printing. I think our plan is to make it so there’s enough cards to play the game normally without having to worry about it getting stale while still maintaining surprises for the full game. Keep an eye out for that!

Printing, and Other Such Updates On Sell Outs

Alpha Prototype of Sell Outs

On the topic of Printing

Printing has given me a serious pain in the neck. I have been looking into printing for Sell Outs. Recently I went to a local company to get some estimates for printing a prototype, at which I was quoted $65 per hour with a time estimate of 87.5 hours. Some back of the napkin math tells me that is roughly… $6,000. Bad start, but that was not truly in their wheelhouse. I get it. I dusted myself off from that moment of defeat, and I thought, “Well I guess I had better just create all the cards myself.” But before I actually did that, I went online and found a website that specializes in printing playing cards. GREAT! Surely they have an easier method for creating cards, and it won’t be that expensive. ($30 setup fee and $1 per card.) Well shit. That’s still about $600-$700 for everything. After a few weeks of research, quotes, and design, I have some…

RTX – We are going to Texas!

We’re going to RTX 2016!

A week from tomorrow, Shanay and I will be flying to scenic Austin, Texas to battle the massive hoards in Texas summer weather at Rooster Teeth Expo. We had the trip planned before I started seriously working on Sell Outs, back when it was just a tiny little thought baby (as a side note, this was before RT announced Million Dollars But…). Here we are several months later with a great and fully functional prototype, a rough estimate for a Kickstarter date, and a decent amount of publicity within our group of friends.

Sell Outs: Card Design Part 1

Card Design: A Frustrating Endeavor

We have started thinking of card designs. It is difficult to think of designs that are similar, but distinct from that of other games. Our three-card format is also complicating things a bit, since we need three distinct designs that help easily determine which card is which, but at the same time similar enough that the design works well.

Thank you to everyone who tested our game at Friend-Con!

Some of you may have had a chance to test out our new game at Friend-Con 2016! Two of my co-conspirators, Alex and Megan, were at the convention this past weekend (5/28-5/29) with our first prototype of the game. I’m happy to report to the rest of you that the feedback was extremely positive!

Sell Outs official announcement!

Here’s the Skinny on Sell Outs

Some friends and I have been working on a new project, a card based party game we are calling Sell Outs! It’s a great prompt-response style game with tons of combinations. The best part about this game: it takes some creativity to win. Your cards will not speak for themselves, it is up to you, the merchant, to give the consumer (the judge) a reason to pick your card.
