Board Game Pieces

divideh

Tabletop game pieces for your game is quite a difficult task, especially as the terms used are so abstract and don’t really resonate well. However, getting the right pieces is essential for a successful game. Though some creators will go for an average ok effect, others will want the  components of tabletop games and accessories to jump out and get attention.

To help you get a better idea of the materials you are choosing for your game and to help you design your game in the most cost-effective way, we have compiled most of the possible components and accessories used in games and wrote about them extensively. 

We will keep updating the content for the board game blocks so stay tuned.

This topic is probably one of the more abstract hidden and unknown topics in our industry; the vague government regulations and guidelines and the secrecy and inaccessibility of the testing labs are making it hard for everyone to understand what actually should be labeled and how.

This topic is for geeks who love to see and understand behind the scenes board games and card game production. Here we will go through the different cost structures of production down to the delicate details of gluing and labor costs. Once you read and understood these articles you will understand the cost and size limitations for your game and you will be able to reconfigure and redesign your game accordingly, all by yourself. Please note that in this topic we cover machines that are used by Hero Time, though most board and card game manufactures will use similar machines there are minor details that change. We will cover in this course topics such as General Costs, Printing Costs, Paper and cardboard cost, miniatures, and more.

Shipping and Fulfillment is another topic that small to large game publishers cannot wrap their heads around, nor can they fully master it. For a first-time creator and an individual to be able to execute this part all by themselves without issues is nearly an impossible task. Still, with the correct information, the creator can stand a chance. This course will discuss different shipping terms, shipping methods, how Fulfillment works, average prices, and the logic behind these prices. This topic is still under construction, but if you are interested in already starting to learn a bit, you can refer to our YouTube discussion here (a video on YouTube that will launch soon)

Hey guys, thank you for visiting this page. This is a personal message from Hersh: As a person who loves board games and the board game industry, it is my dream that board game creators will have everything they need all in one place, hence the University page you have come across. While I can handle and write all the information surrounding Manufacturing and Logistics, when it comes to Board Game Design, I need your help to write great and helpful content. If you have any board game design experience and think it is a valuable experience other creators should know about and learn from, please get in touch with us and let us know. If your article is informative and has concise and clear points, I would be more than happy to add it here in the university and put you as the author with a backlink to your own game/project, and your profile.
