A few months ago I decided to invest heavily in printing prototypes for The City of Kings through the Game Crafter, a scary idea given the size of my game.
At first I was unsure, each copy of the game was costing $100's and the shipping to the UK was very expensive (it's a big heavy game) but I decided to go ahead.
Now the games have been off to a few reviewers and both Rahdo and Man VS Meeple have praised me on the quality of the prototype stating it's one of the best they've seen in years.
I couldn't have achieved this without the printing efforts of TGC and wanted to say I am very pleased. The custom cutting allows you to really create anything you need and the quality is excellent.
I have attached some photos of the game, and you can see more photos on BGG here. The only non TGC printed components are the character sheets.
Happy to answer any questions!
