MMX “Lite” available from Spielmaterial and Gamecrafter

The Meeple Mini Expansion that was released last year included the rulebook from the Summer 2018 Design Contest, and in addition cubes in black and white, meeples in all colours plus grey, and a drawstring bag.

There is not really a clear relationship between the rulebook and the components, but the components enable improvements on a lot of existing games and more importantly allow for the creation of new game experiences. The recent Contest X Design Contest generated a lot of new games using the meeples, and a bunch of other games have also been published under the MMX tag (or Meeples tag) on the wiki.

Meeples and cubes should not be hard to come by for anyone wanting to expand their Green Box on their own, but as of right now this is made even easier, by the availability of a “components only” version of the MMX on spielmaterial.de (perfect for EU players) and on thegamecrafter.com (perfect for North American players). They are both cheaper options than buying the original MMX package here on our shop, especially if you are already shopping on these sites and can share the shipping cost.

Design Contest 2019 – Contest X

The second design contest for the Green Box of Games was held in April 2019. It was called the “Contest X” because designers were encouraged to use eXpansion content when designing games. While the contest was open to any kind of expansion, all designers limited themselves to contents from the official MMX expansion, featuring meeples and extra cubes in black and white.

10 games were submitted by 8 different designers for this contest, and the winners are…

Design Contest – Summer 2018

This summer there has been a design contest for new games for the Green Box of Games. The contest has been running for the most part on the BoardGameGeek forums and in the Green Box Community Group on Facebook.

There have been a total of 14 new games proposed, most of them original, and many of them very good games, and the rules for all of them can be found on the Wiki.

And the winners are…

All the games in the Community Wiki

The Green Box of Games community is growing, and a wiki has been created on Fandom/Wikia to make it easier for people to publish, share and discuss game ideas and designs. Games can be explored by player count, theme and category. The Wiki is completely open, so anyone can add or edit information, even without a registered user.

Kickstarter successfully funded at 500%

The Kickstarter campaign for the “Second to None Edition” of the Green Box of Games ended on July 13th, funded at 540% with contributions from 192 backers.

A big thank you to all backers, and everyone who helped share the campaign.

We are moving forward to the next stage of development, as all files will be sent to production in August. If all goes according to plan the game will be ready in time for the Spiel ’17 game fair in Essen, on october 25th.

Thank you again!

The 2017 one-new-game-every-week challenge!

It’s that time of the (new) year, and everywhere people are making resolutions for what they will achieve. Updates for the Green Box slowed down considerably as 2016 drew towards an end and the holiday spirit took hold, but now is the time to look ahead. My goal is to make the Green Box of Games into a rich gaming system which allows players to have lots of different quality gaming experiences, and for that we need more games!

That’s why my plan is to publish (at least) one new game to the website every week throughout 2017.

Some will be original games developed fro the set, others will be inspired or adapted versions of old or new favourites from the gaming universe. And I will probably need YOU to help out, so if you have an idea for a game, drop me a line, either by email, on Facebook or on BoardGameGeek.

Best wishes to you all for a great new year of gaming!

Ready for Essen!

Our shipment of 100 Green Box sets from thegamecrafter.com has arrived, and we are quite thrilled!

The pre-orders are coming in, and we have soon sold about half of the 100 sets we are bringing to the fair. Pre-order here to make sure you don’t miss out.

Also check this post for a detailed description of the components included in the box.

Now available for sale on The Game Crafter!

A small step for man, a giant leap for the Green Box project! You can now buy your own set from thegamecrafter.com.

The Game Crafter is a print-on-demand company specializing in tabletop games. This means we upload our designs based on their templates, and they print one copy of the game each time somebody places an order. Obviously, this means that the price will be a bit high for such a small game box, but it also means that we can make the game available to anyone who wants it way before we get a proper large scale production financed.
