Cray Cray Games Video: Rainbow Octopus

If you need a game that is good for kids of varying ages AND won’t bore you to tears if you’re a parent or much older sibling that will play the game as well?

Rainbow Octopus offers a “sliding scale” of difficulty based on player capability and interest in the various features provided.

You can watch a < 5m video on the game play OR read the rules.

Publisher Announcement

It is with great joy and excitement that we would like to announce that our game, currently titled Under Construction, has been signed by Breaking Games®.

We’ll let you all know as we get closer to printing and releasing.

Under Construction is a 2-6 player worker placement game that puts players in the role of general contractor.  You bid against other players for contracts, collect the necessary resources, and build what is required in order to get paid and increase your company’s reputation.

With a modest amount of bluffing, resource management, worker placement and Development Cards–that can help you or harm others–there’s a little something for everyone.

You can read its current rules.

Cats & Caverns Accepted to BFIG!

We are happy to announce that our newest game, Cats & Caverns, has been accepted to the Boston Festival of Indie Games (BFIG).

Find out more about BFIG or our newest game by reading the current version of the rules.

Early 2016 Update

Hello Backers, Fans, Followers, and Other Interested Parties!

We wanted to provide an update to keep you abreast of what we at Cray Cray Games have been doing lately.

Cray Cray Games went to Unpub6 and debuted 2 of its newest games:  Under Construction and Cats & Caverns.  You can read about them on our list of games page.

We will be showing both of those games on Saturday morning at the Unpub booth at PAX East next weekend.  Stop by and say hi to Phil if you’re there.

 

Final Find It & Bind It Release of 2015

We’re happy to announce that we’ve released the Print-n-Play files for both Find It & Bind It expansions to our backers of the Kickstarter from earlier this year.

For those that didn’t have a chance to back us during the Kickstarter, we’ve also made Print-On-Demand versions available at the following TheGameCrafter.com links:

We may make an unboxed version of The Demon Expansion available as well for folks that just may want the printed cards.

Happy Holidays from Cray Cray Games

We are pleased to share that we have successfully completed all activities related to our Kickstarter.

We are also pleased to announce that we delivered donations of games to the Big Brother Big Sister and Toys For Tots organizations. You may recall that we had 13 Glenda, The Good Witch backers who donated a game each.

We have added to that donation so that we could give BOTH organizations 20 games each.  We attempted to get a picture with someone at the State Police barracks but they wouldn’t let us snap a photo so instead we have Bruno’s hand and 1 of the games.

Thank you all, again, for your support!

The Geek Down’s thoughts of F&B after Boston FIG

Hello All,

Here’s some thoughts after Pat and some folks played Find It & Bind It at the Boston Festival of Indie Games.

Have a listen…

The Shipments are Coming! (Find It & Bind It)

We are happy to announce that we have started shipping Find It & Bind It to backers.

One backer had it in their hands last Friday–though that was because I was able to hand it over while she happened to be in the state.  🙂

Regardless…  Shipping in August instead of October.

Cray Cray Games to show Find It & Bind It at Boston FIG

Find It & Bind It has been accepted to participate in the Boston Festival of Indie Games’ Table Top Showcase on September 12, 2015.

We are also happy to announce that the fulfillment of our Kickstarter rewards should be on the verge, if not already, 100% complete by the showcase–at least one month AHEAD OF TIME.

We are very pleased to be wrapping up the production of our game and bringing it into the homes of over 100 backers.

If you’ve played the game and haven’t yet had a chance to give us feedback or give it a rating, please check out its page on Board Game Geek.

Find It & Bind It’s Kickstarter a Success!

We’re funded. And we did it with 272% of our goal.

We thanked our backers on Kickstarter and are thanking them again here. We’re also pleased that we’ll have more than a handful of games to donate to Toys For Tots and the Big Brother Big Sister Foundation.

From here, it’ll take 2-3 weeks to get the funds which puts us in mid-April.

In the meantime, we’re contacting vendors to see what we might be able to do now that we have “proven” cash-in-hand and if we can swing a deal better than what we already have planned, we’ll announce the project plan and go into the details with backers by Monday, 4/23/15.

One last thing, we were working toward earning that 2nd Dispel Magic Spell Card based on getting to 100 FB Likes and 700 Twitter Followers. Well, we got to 146 FB Likes and 695 followers so… we’re going to include it anyway.

Dispel Magic is awesome. 🙂
