Carlsberg don’t make weekends – but if they did I think we just had one.
Three Fantastic days of meeting amazing game fans and some of the loudest and most enjoyable games of Luchador! Mexican Wrestling Dice, as designer Mark Rivera and the Backspindle Boys showed the UK gaming the public the ropes – and the head locks – and the table slams.
It was great to see so many of our UK backers coming along to meet us. It was even better that so many people who had not known about the game have now pledged after playing Luchador! On Saturday 31 May we passed the $10,000 mark which is fantastic, and just to put a great big fat cherry on top of that Luchador! won the 2014 UK Games Expo award for Best New Family Game.
By 3 June we had 343 backers and are over 75% funded after just 8 days. We can’t thank you guys enough. We said in the introduction video on this campaign that we wanted to make Luchador! bigger and better. The enjoyment of all the fans who played Luchador! in Birmingham this weekend (not to mention the nice new shiny Award Certificate that says “BEST FAMILY GAME” on it) has told us we are on the right track. We are working now to get the last bits and pieces prepared for the second edition and are on schedule to have it ready to go to print as soon as this KickStarter closes. So keep sharing, keep tweeting and spreading the word guys. (If you don’t use social media then just open the nearest window and shout Viva Luchador! at a random passer-by). Thanks everyone Viva Luchador!
