I am very excited to be attending the Rochester Mini Maker Faire for the 4th year in a row! This is definitely one of my favorite shows to attend. I love it because everyone there is excited about making things. It does not matter if what you specifically make excites someone, they are just interested in creating something from nothing, which means a very excited and engaged audience!
From making honey, to 3-d Printers and tech gadgets, to jewelry and dolls, there are all sorts of cool things being made in Rochester and I am always excited to go and teach people about what I do and how they can do it too.
If you want to come learn about designing and publishing games, or you just enjoy learning about making things, consider coming by next Saturday, November 18th, from 9-5pm at the Rochester Convention Center downtown! Oh, I should also mention they have a 30 foot fire-breathing metal dragon this year!
For more information or to purchase tickets, you can head over to the Rochester Mini Maker Faire website! I hope to see you there!
I am super happy to announce that we launched Dino Dude Ranch: Hatchlings this morning on Kickstarter and it funded in just under 4 hours! We are extremely humbled by the amazing support we have seen so far for this game and are excited to get the base game back in stock while also adding this awesome addition to it!
All of the reviews that have come back on Hatchlings have been overwhelmingly positive! Check out what Meeple Mountain had to say:
It is our pleasure to be hosting another game design contest through the Game Crafter!
This contest is themed around Escape Room board games! We here at Letiman Games really enjoy playing Escape Room games and with the current rise in their popularity, we thought it would be fun to encourage designers to create their own puzzles to baffle us with!
The contest will be running for 6 months as we expect it will take quite a while to put these games together.
If you are interested and want to know more, check out the contest description at:
and be sure to reach out to us if you have any other questions!
Best of luck to you all and we enjoy seeing what you come up with!
Although we are very active on all forms of social media, we thought it important to have a section of our site dedicated to news announcements (yes, we are hoping to have a lot of big ones coming soon). We only thought it pertinent to start this new news section off with posting about updates on Dino Dude Ranch, our game that started it all!
We are so delighted to announce that we are releasing an expansion for Dino Dude Ranch as well doing a second print run for Dino Dude Ranch!
An Expansion!?!?! Yes! We will be launching a Kickstarter campaign this November for Dino Dude Ranch Hatchlings. The expansion revolves around buying dinosaur eggs and working to hatch them. It adds extra decisions, more things to spend resources on, more ways to earn points, and a little push your luck. This expansion is the perfect addition to our beloved game and our playtesters agree that it simply just makes the game better. It adds a lot to the base game while keeping the general flow and integrity of the original. We will be posting teaser images and more information on social media over the next few months, so follow us on twitter and facebook for more regular updates! you can also now find it on BoardGameGeek, so please subscribe to the page, thumb up the images and become a fan!
We will also be printing our second print run for Dino Dude Ranch! This has been a long time coming and we would have loved to have done it sooner but we are happy to announce that it is happening now! We have had a lot of people reach out to us looking for the game but we have been sold out since January of this year. We expect to have the games in stock by early 2018 and will be keeping you all up to date as we progress.
As always, we have plenty of other projects in the works but we are focusing on printing Groves and moving forward with Dino Dude Ranch and the Hatchlings expansion before we really begin working to deeply on anything else.
Until next time, thanks for supporting us and happy gaming!
