Moving right along…

Hello all! It has been a hectic and fun late summer and fall… with me galavanting off to France for a month to visit my very good friend Chris (one of the owners of Oka Luda Games) and road tripping throughout his wonderful country! And… we added a side trip to Essen Spiel – which was AWESOME as always! It was so good to be back after my two year hiatus (while waiting for international travel to stabilize)…. pfffft. ANywho… I just HAVE to get a ton of new stuff onto the site… and so… the next few write ups will be amongst my shortest ever. 😅 Sorry for the lack of poetic ramblings and video links and such!

It’s just that SO many backlogged campaigns fulfilled in an incredibly short time… and well… like I said… traveling fun was a bit out of control!! 😬😂🎉

Bundle details

This Upstart bundle includes the Deluxe Kickstarter Edition of Block and Key along with the Kickstarter exclusive promo pack. This version of the game has the spot UV linen finish… which really amps up the beauty of this gorgeous game! OK… you didn’t need to hear me gosh about the production quality to find out what was in the bundle… hehe. But, you get the idea!

As always, please reach out with any questions!! I’m almost always available unless I’m driving, flying, or asleep! 😂😅🚗✈️💤 And OK… sometimes I might be available while flying… 😉

Kickstarter Campaign Link – to check and see all the juicy exclusives!

I do want to at least post a link to the original Kickstarter campaign… so you can see just how amazing this game looks and feels. Add to that the puzzle’y goodness and that 2-level board that always makes me think of that 3D chess board in Star Trek… and well, all geek cylinders are FIRING over there!! Ahem… 😉 Oh yes… the original Kickstarter campaign can be found HERE.

Again… sooo sorry, everyone! I’ll get back in the swing at some point… argh! 🏴‍☠️

Block and KeyBlock and Key Deluxe Kickstarter Edition is here!!!  Puzzle’y goodness and an awesome 2-level playing field. Ohhhhhhhh… sooo sweeeeeet! 🧁🎉 Oh, and a $10 shipping credit too!

In Block and Key, adventurers place 3D clay blocks in a centralized raised playing area, with the goal of completing their own request cards. The challenge is made more interesting as each player is limited to their “2D” viewpoint.

Each turn adventurers may either draw new blocks from the supply, or place ONE block into the shared space. They may then check to see if they have completed any request cards before filling their hand.

The first adventure to complete the number of request cards required by the player count ends the game. Scores will be tallied and one player named the victor.
