It’s me again, “FourGiving” here on Board Game Arena.
I am thrilled to announce today some exciting news about our beloved family/party game, “Remember When…” The game has been played over 1000 times now on Board Game Arena by over 1300 different players from all over the world! Today we are TRYING to implement an updated version for all of our fans, with new artwork, even more cards, card fixes, and a couple other small improvements. In conjunction with these changes, the home version of the game can FINALLY be purchased online at The Game Crafter, just in time for X-mas! (see link below) Like the BGA version, the game is only available in English at this time. You can also purchase the “Flashbacks” expansion, which doubles the number of cards, extra sets of memory boards if you want to use the game in a classroom environment, and additional packs of 24 blank cards to create your own! The home version of the game plays with 3-9 players, ages 8 and up, in 30-60 minutes. It also includes other variants and especially new Orange word cards to replace “the” on the memory board with celebrities, fictional heroes and villains, and famous historical figures. There is also a 2 player co-op variant available at boardgamegeek. (see link below) Please also see the new tutorial video on Youtube, at BGG, and here on BGA.
As some of you have already seen today, 11/20/17, our planned upgrade is not yet complete. Some of the changes have made it through while others, like resizing the cards to fit the new memory board, have not. As far as I can tell the game is still playable, and we ARE aware of these issues. Brederic has been working hard on a smooth implementation and will continue to do so. Thanks for your patience
This is still not our end goal for this game, but it is a major stepping stone. Through Game Crafter we are basically able to “self-produce” the game now, one copy at a time. But we are still very hopeful that a major game publisher will be willing to give the game a try in their lineup. Chief among my reasons for wanting this is that with more copies in production the price can be reduced (Please see my post at BGG regarding the price of the game). For a publisher to pick up the game word of mouth will be very important. Of the 1300+ players who have played the game here, only 22 have rated the game thus far on boardgamegeek. So if you enjoy the game and have not done so yet, please rate the game there and feel free to tell us what you like, or even don’t like, about the game. Also, if you know someone in a school system and/or teaching English as a second language whom you think may want to use it with their students, please share these links with them.
Lastly, I want to issue another big thank you to Brent, “Brederic” here on BGA, for his long hours of hard work in bringing this game to so many people in this electronic format. This is definitely a skill that I DO NOT have, and none of you would be enjoying the game now without his diligent help.
And my wife and I thank all of YOU from the bottom of our hearts. We have really enjoyed meeting you online, making new friends all over this amazing world. Your encouragement to us, your great ideas on how to make the game better, and your willingness to be silly in a unique BGA game where ELO doesn’t really matter has just warmed our hearts. I so look forward to seeing what 2018 has in store for “Remember When…”
