Kickstarter Project Alert: Origin of Games Poster

Hey game enthusiasts! There are a lot of awesome projects on Kickstarter, and if you love tabletop games (or know a special someone who loves them) there is one project that you just have to check out!

SweeTooth Design is offering two of the coolest game posters I’ve ever seen. If you’re a gamer of any kind, you’re going to love them! “Origin of Games,” available in vintage and pop versions, would make a super holiday gift, too. If you’re interested in backing the project, here’s the page link: http://kck.st/1Ezs0ho.

From SweeTooth Design’s Kickstarter description:

ORIGIN OF GAMES is an infographic of the world’s famous classic games that is inspired by our surprising research finding on game history!

In the previous months, we began exploring the history of the world’s most famous classic games that our team really loves.

Our design team spent months drawing, designing, & selecting the top 25 classic games that we wanted to showcase.

For the Pop version, the poster takes on a red and black checker board orientation for a fun appearance. It’s also framed in a beautiful, gold & red Venetian border.

For the vintage version, there’s a classic feel with a natural mahogany background. The games look as if they are physically placed on a wooden tabletop.

“Alchemy of Tea” is an info graphic that beautifully maps out 15 traditional tea recipes from around the world, paying homage to the 4,000-year-old beverage.

“Genesis of Cookies” features 30 cookies on the poster, and each one is indicated with its documented origin of place and time. Plus, you can find all sorts of great recipes (including the cookie ones) on www.SweeToothDesign.com!

 

There are only 10 days left to back this project, so don’t wait! Head over to SweeTooth Design’s “The Origin of Games.” This is a very fun poster that will make a remarkable collector’s piece and a great conversation starter. Even better, it could be a fantastic new addition to your game room (Don’t have a game room? No time like the present to start one and decorate it with this poster!). Here’s the project’s Kickstarter page: http://kck.st/1Ezs0ho.

Happy gaming!
