Salt Lake Gaming Con 2018 Recap

Salt Lake Gaming Con was fun! We met many awesome people and played many games. We had a larger variety of games than ever before and made some new friends while meeting up with some old ones! Frog Chess was a big hit as well as BOCO, and we are pleased to announce that the Kickstarter campaign for Kofre’s Curse will launch on August 8th! Here is a piece of the video that will be shown at the top of our campaign:

Kofre’s Curse Kickstarter Coming Soon

We’d like to announce a new board game that we’ve been working on for the past couple months! Kofre’s Curse is a board game where you cooperatively excavate a pyramid and work together to defeat Kofre, an ancient Egyptian sorcerer possessed by four Egyptian gods. A Kickstarter campaign for this game will be launching in a couple weeks and we hope that you will enjoy the game’s plethora of treasures, traps and hideous monsters. Check out the pictures for more details!

Work cooperatively to defeat the bosses!
Crazy Rami is probably my favorite character so far.
An earlier prototype! Rooms assemble to make a pyramid. Then the boss emerges…
Soon...
We got the box in from China! Shiny eyes make it look mysterious.
Yeep.
The back of the box! Very cool!

OpenWest 2018 Recap

Binary Cocoa is back at it with the force of ten thousand rhinos! We set up our booth better than we ever have before and we feel like it was time well spent. For reasons unknown to us we were super productive this year so far and we have come out with several new games! Some are finished and others are still being produced. We also brought some of our older games and some people remembered those. Lets talk about the games!

Frog Chess

Frog chess is a game where you jump each other’s frogs and the last one to be able to jump wins the game. It’s checkers meets chess meets leap frog, and it’s amazing. We came into the conference with 25 copies of the game to sell and we left with only one copy in tow!

BOCO

BOCO is a game that we developed a couple years ago as a phone app and we decided to try it out as a physical game. So what did what any modest game developer would do and made a giant prototype of the game for everyone to play on. The response seemed to be extremely positive!

Kofre’s Curse

Kofre’s Curse is a light RPG where you cooperatively work with other players to excavate a pyramid. Together you hunt for treasure, surpass monsters and traps and defeat the boss that emerges from his tomb once you reach the end. Think Dungeons and Dragons meets Forbidden Island meets Egyptian mythology. We plan on Kickstarting this game soon!

War Cans

War Cans is a new game that is chess meets sorting your canned food collection. You stack cans, and whoever’s can is on top controls the stack. Whoever tops all the cans with their cans wins the game! We printed this game in large size and used tuna cans to test this game out. Thankfully we brought lunch money and didn’t have to eat the cat food for lunch.

Glacial Skies

Glacial Skies is the main video game that we are developing at the moment. It includes players manning a submarine where each player is in charge of the sub’s functions, whether it be navigation, sonar or the weapons. This is our first game that will have people playing over the network and we are pretty psyched about it! More info to come on this one soon!

Phinacci

Phinacci is a numbers based card game that is derived from the Fibonacci sequence. The cards are completed and beautiful and hopefully we will have more news and info on this one to come soon!

Wet Blanket

Once again we brought Wet Blanket to show conference goers and it we feel that it resonated pretty well with most people there. It’s unique humor provided some laughs and sparked much conversation about what we should do with our hands at parties.

So many games within so many months! We finally feel like we are becoming a store, which is exactly what we wanted to be when we started the company so many years ago. We’d like to thank everyone that came out to support us, particularly Andrew, David and Colton! Thanks to everyone for helping us have a good time!

BOCO Gets Re-imagined!

Well folks, its been a long time since we’ve posted! We went through a long year of conferences and production on our games and needed a much earned rest. The time has come once again to make games!

A little while ago we made a little game called BOCO. The initial build was an app that allowed the people to play the game together on their phones. We pondered the game for a while and now we have decided to make it into a physical table top game! Here are a couple shots of the production:

We have a couple friends that are really good at using CNC machines and are making a prototype for us at the moment! The game is a little like the game GO, where you must surround your opponent on all sides using triangles and squares. We plan on taking it to the Salt Lake Gaming Conference this June and we’re looking forward to seeing how people respond to it. It should be fun! We have a couple other games in development as well but are not ready to show off yet.

Soon!

We have Salt Lake Gaming Con and OpenWest that we will be attending in the upcoming months and hopefully we will attend more afterword. Stop by and say hi if you get some time!
