Unboxing the Demo
about 2 months ago – Fri, Sep 03, 2021 at 08:23:26 AM

Hey Bartenders! 

We recently received our demo copies from our manufacturer partner.  Everything looks great with a couple of minor issues that we're ironing out.  We hope to send our approval in soon and get the printers moving. Here is the unboxing video. More coming soon!



Print and Play is here!
2 months ago – Wed, Aug 18, 2021 at 10:01:20 AM

Hey Bartenders!

Over the last month, our printing partner has been hard at work, and we are eagerly awaiting our printed samples of the game.  It's impossible to predict when we will receive them right now (shipping is still crazy) but we will show them off as soon as they arrive. 

Today, we are charging cards and sending out the print and play for those of you that got them. Thank you so much for your patience.  Included in the zipped file are PDFs of the front and back of the cards, a foldable rulebook, and a digital rulebook. We've also included a few blank judge and bar cards for you to customize your game! We can't wait to hear what you think. 

In other news, I'm excited to announce that Gifford and I will have a booth at PAX Unplugged in Philadelphia from December 10-12, 2021. We hope to meet and play Bar Fight with all of you. See those of you who can make it in 114 days.



Art Finalization
3 months ago – Fri, Jul 16, 2021 at 01:45:43 AM

Hey Bartenders!

      We have been hard at work since the last day of our campaign. We are happy to announce that ALL of the art for the game has been finalized, the game rules have been re-tested to ensure the gameplay is balanced, and every detail has been scrutinized and spellchecked. We are about to send the final art off to the printer and we'll keep you up to date as it moves through the production phase.

      We want to send a special shout-out to our 3 Judge-tier backers. Their art was super fun to create and we are proud to have them as a part of Bar Fight.  The new judges are Ben Berry, Samatha Maxwell, and Jeffery Lundquist. Thank you all so much for your support of Bar Fight.  You'll be seeing some of the new art on our social channels soon and will send out the print and play (to those backers who purchased the add-on) as soon as it is ready. 



Survey Time!

Hey Bartenders!

We've been finalizing everything on our end, and we're ready to send out surveys! You'll be getting an email in the next few days from us through our pledge manager, BackerKit, with a link to our survey. There, you'll put in your shipping info, and have the chance to add things to your pledge like additional copies of Bar Fight, the Print and Play version, or our awesome sticker pack!

Also, we've got a new bar to show off! Here's The White Rabbit, a bar that offers adventure and intrigue for those who are willing to venture off the beaten path.

That's all for now!

We Did It!!
5 months ago – Thu, May 13, 2021 at 04:39:14 PM

Hey Bartenders!

What a stunning conclusion to the campaign! We're absolutely floored by the support and enthusiasm you've shown, and are so excited that you're joining us on this wild ride. We hit $19k, and 550 Backers! Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Stretch Goal Unlocked!

With less than an hour left in the campaign, we unlocked our $19,000 funding goal of larger bar cards! The bar cards will be 140mm x 120mm (twice the size of a tarot card). That's lots more room to show off the artwork, and it'll make the whole card much easier to read.

What's Next?

Here's a sketch of our estimated production timeline - we'll be putting the final touches on Bar Fight's artwork as we send out surveys to y'all to get your shipping info and complete orders, including any extra copies and add-ons. You should get the survey from BackerKit within a few weeks, and we'll post another update when they go out. After that, we'll send out updates roughly every month to keep you in the loop about the production process and show you what's going on with Bar Fight!

Shipping Update

We're thrilled to announce we've partnered with Funagain Logistics to handle our fulfillment, and we've got new shipping estimates.

For the Bartender Tier, it's $13 for USA backers, and $18 for all International backers.

For the Connoisseur Tier, it's $16 for USA backers, and $25 for all International backers.

Again,thank you. There's going to be champagne popping in Chicago and New York tonight.
