At last it is here!
Kalevala: The Capture of Sampo board game prototype has arrived from the print house, and will be shown at the Spiel Essen in Germany!
Tuomas Mansikka had a game he'd been working with for some time and contacted me to help him put the cherry on top. We worked for over two months and had several hours long video chats until last week's Monday the prototype was sent for printing.
The game consists of:
A divider screen to be put between players.
A map to be hung on both sides of the divider screen (similar to Battleship game).
20-page Rule book.
Player aids in two different sizes.
160 different cards with five different backs!
Sampo & Wound tokens and Wind Compass out of cardboard.
Also several beautiful paintings from Akseli Gallen-Kallela (link), Dana Mad (link) and game-icons (link).
Logo, tokens, wreath and map illustrations by me.
The first prototype was printed with my home office ink jet and cut by hand. It was then tested at the local board game café Taverna.
Want to be part of making this game? Mr Mansikka is looking for investors and interested players to try the game out and develop it further. Contact Tuomas Mansikka on his email here.
