Crowdsourcing Mornings: Hamlet: The Village Building Game

Welcome to the Crowdsourcing Mornings segment!  Every weekday morning, Geek Alabama talks about and features one crowdsourcing project from crowdsourcing sites such as Kickstarter, Indiegogo, and others.  The hope with Crowdsourcing Mornings is to feature and help a project be successful and reach its fundraising goal.  Please enjoy today’s featured project!

Please read our crowdsourcing guidelines at:

  • A Hamlet in British English is a small village without a church.
  • Hamlet is a medium weight competitive village builder where players are communally turning their hamlet into a bustling little town, by completing the construction of the church.
  • Hamlet features irregular shaped tiles that connect together without a grid to form a village that is completely different every time.
  • The tile placement organically creates interconnecting paths that the villagers use to access buildings.
  • Distance between buildings matters, as resources need to be transported from one building to another. This leads players to construct boards where no two games will ever feel the same.
  • Since the buildings are communal, this also creates a fluid economy, where players need to adapt to the emergent needs of their Hamlet.

As of March 11th, this project has raised $175,000 of their $22,002 goal. This project has 17 days left to raise as much as it can. For a pledge of $2, you will get pledge manager access.  For a pledge of $61, you will get one deluxe edition game.  To learn more and to pledge money, go to:
