Our Games

There are only two of us, here at Drayer Ink, so while we are always working hard to bring our games to you, we can’t always stop and write about it – this is where you can read about the games we have in development!

You can also check out our social media, our YouTube videos, and our newsletter!

  • Tabletop Network/BGG.CON 2022 – 4
    Day 4 of our TTN/BGG adventure is day 1 of the actual BGG convention. I had no idea what to expect, so I was very glad to already have a posse of friends and connections from TTN to keep me from wandering the corridors, aimless and alone, haha.
  • Tabletop Network/BGG.CON 2022 – 1
    Earlier this month, we attended our first major board game conference and convention in the USA – Tabletop Network Conference and BoardGameGeek Con. In this series of videos and blog posts, we attempt to tell you that story! This is day 1 – travelling from PDX to DFW, and arriving at the hotel.

  • Evergreen Tabletop Expo 2022
    On Saturday, the 4th of June, 2022, we attended the Evergreen Tabletop Expo in Redmond, Seattle. It was our first visit to Seattle, and as we crested the hill and saw the city laid out below us, I was delighted to feel excitement fizzing inside my chest. I have travelled so much, and felt soContinue reading “Evergreen Tabletop Expo 2022”

  • Tabletop Network/BGG.CON 2022 – 5
    Day 5 of our TTN/BGG adventure is day 2 of the actual BGG convention. I had my first 6-player test of this version of The Valley, so that was stressing me out – so glad I got it out of the way, though! And after that, I relaxed and started to really enjoy myself properly, which was a great feeling – anxiety is a cruel beast…
  • Unboxing – October TGC order
    Recently, both George and I ordered prototypes of our games from The Game Crafter, and there were bits that weren’t quite right – this is the story of the replacement parts!

    • Tabletop Network/BGG.CON 2022 – 7
      Finally, Saturday! Before the convention, I felt like this was going to be the biggest day – everything would be pretty tame as we ramped up to the busiest day of the week. In fact, by Saturday, it was starting to feel a lot more like the end of the whole event – many of our people had already left, and the rest of us were pretty low-battery after a week of late nights.
