Crowdsourcing Mornings: Point City + Deep Dive


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:

Point City and Deep Dive are the newest small box board games from the award-winning design and publishing team at Flatout Games!

Two small box games, BIG fun for everyone!

Designed by Molly Johnson, Robert Melvin, and Shawn Stankewich and Illustrated by Dylan Mangini.

Point City is a follow-up to the smash hit card game Point Salad! It is a fast and fun card-drafting engine-building game for 1-4 players! There are over 150 unique building cards, so you can create a completely different city each and every time you play!

The rules are simple: Select two adjacent cards from the dynamic city grid and add them to your expanding city. Use your resource cards and bonuses to construct building cards that require specific combinations. Build special civic structures to multiply your city’s points and be the top urban planner!

Point City takes the same simple concept of drafting cards and building the best combinations from Point Salad, and adds new layers of resource management and engine building to the mix — making the game familiar and easy to learn, but challenging for everyone!

Point City features 150 unique building cards – each with individual attributes and stunning artwork, to help bring your city to life!

Due to the double-sided cards and the dynamic nature of the city grid market, each game of Point City will be completely unique. There are 20+ Civic Tokens to combine with each of the civic buildings for endless scoring possibilities!

Deep Dive is a simple, fast, and fun push-your-luck and set collection for 1-6 players! Use your waddle of penguins to dive deep into the ocean to amass the most bountiful collection of food!

Turns are simple – flip over an ocean tile and see what you reveal! Take what you reveal in the shallows, or dive deeper, hoping for a larger catch… but watch out, the deeper you go, the more plentiful the predators become!

As you surface with food, you’ll build sets of three colors. Complete sets to score the maximum number of points by targeting the colors you need. The game ends when one of the depths of the ocean has been fully explored and the penguin waddle with the best sets of food wins!

With easy-to-learn rules and a quick play time, Deep Dive is the perfect fast and exciting game for the whole family! With 160 ocean tiles to reveal, each game will present unique challenges!

As of March 28th, this project has raised $198,000 of their $8,000 goal. This project has 18 days left to raise as much as it can. For a pledge of $10, you will get print and plays.  For a pledge of $19, you will get one game.  To learn more and to pledge money, go to:
