It’s tearin’ up my heart (when I’m out of Meeple Syrup)

Co-designer Clio Yun-su Davis and publisher Banana Chan had the opportunity to speak with Sen-Foong Lim on Meeple Syrup last night, chatting about Battle of the Boybands, K-pop, the drama behind boybands, Asian themes in games and RPG design vs. board game design! 

We also talked about Clio's Golden Cobra Challenge-winning larp about being a K-pop boyband (yes, this is an ongoing theme), which you can download for free here: http://www.goldencobra.org/pdf/2017/The%20Long%20Drive%20Back%20from%20Busan-CDavis.pdf

You made this larger than life! Thank you all so much for getting us here. To celebrate, we'll be planning our first stretch goal at $9,000 - a new Boy card, exclusive to Kickstarter backers

As we work on getting his make-up, dancing and singing routines, and press training ready, we'd like to introduce you to one of our Rebellious Boys, Arjun!

Want to hear more about Battle of the Boybands? Co-designer Clio Yun-su Davis chatted with Jason Slingerland on BTG about Battle of the Boybands! You can hear the episode here:

On another quick note, we just made an additional pledge level for those who want to purchase 2 copies of the game to get shipped to the same location! For that level, you'll get 2 copies at $50, plus $10 shipping.

We also forgot to mention that the cards are are tarot-sized (2.75” x 4.75") at 300 GSM, for those of you who are planning on getting sleeves. We chose tarot-sized, because it displays the artwork the best and makes the Boys really stand out. 

Speaking of artwork, we're almost at our first stretch goal at $9000! When we hit our goal, we'll be posting updates on how we're working with our artist, Renmiou to design our Kickstarter-exclusive Boy! <3

Co-Designer, Clio Yun-su Davis is currently working with our artist, Renmiou to get his look together and we should be able to share with you all what he looks like in the next 20 days, before the campaign ends. As you can see, we have some very specific things we'd like to include for this Boy:


In the meantime, we'd like to share with you another Boy profile! This time, it's Paolo! One of the Supernatural Boys. He's just sooooo dreamy.
