This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.
Please read our crowdsourcing guidelines at: https://geekalabama.com/media-kit-pr/geek-alabama-crowdsourcing-guidelines/
Dig your way Out is a fast-paced strategy board game – that takes around 45 minutes to play- where 2 to 6 players compete to break out of prison first. To escape the prison, you have to literally dig your way out! If you don’t want to dig your hole with spoons, you will need tools, which you can either craft from whatever you can scrap in the prison, buy them with cigarettes, or, if you’re well-armed, extort them from other players! Like tools, weapons have to be improvised, crafted or bought with cigarettes.
Dig your way Out was created in 2015 by David Simide, a French boardgamer enthusiast who didn’t spend time in jail (sorry to disappoint you) but was strongly interested in the carceral universe. Dig your way Out’s mechanics are heavily inspired by his taste for eclectic games. David wanted to create an immersive and fun game on an adult theme, which could bring together hardcore gamers as well as more casual ones. From a simple card game it became this boardgame that builds up tension and that makes you (almost) as unsafe as in a real prison! After years of design and testing with hundreds of players all over France, the prototype won several prizes.
Now that the famous artist The Mico gave it life with awesome illustrations and colorful characters, Dig your way Out is more than ready to be published!
As of June 14th, this project has raised $28,000 of their $14,653 goal. This project has 20 days left to raise as much as it can. For a pledge of $37, you will get one board game. For a pledge of $112, you will get three board games. To learn more and to pledge money, go to: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/borderline/dig-your-way-out
