Design Conversations Podcast Features Mardi Gras Madness

Enjoy this one-of-a-kind board game design podcast from the designers of Mardi Gras Madness! The process of designing a board game or card game is filled with uncertainty. Uplink Underground Games prides itself on designing unique games that are highly thematic. Indie gamers who discover our niche love the work we do! But have you ever wondered how the designers built that beautiful game that graces your table? What struggles, stumbles, and failures did they overcome to bring the board game or card game to life?

Listen in to a new podcast by the designers of Mardi Gras Madness. In the Board Game Design Conversations Podcast, Mark, Ben, and Art discuss the origins of the game. Because we are New Orleans natives, we created a niche game to simulate being a kid again!

Breakaway Football Kickstarter campaign is LIVE

Uplink Underground Games proudly announces the launch of a Kickstarter campaign to produce our very first board game: Breakaway Football. The culmination of 9 months of design, development, and testing, this endeavor is finally ready to take the gaming world by storm. We here at the Underground are convinced this is the finest football coaching simulator to ever hit the tabletop, and believe you will agree.

Take a look for yourself (demo video here). Combining strategic coaching decisions with the full range of real-world football outcomes, determined by a simple yet innovative game mechanic, Breakaway Football offers a fun, lively play experience for avid gamers and football fans alike. Casual gamers will enjoy the ease of play, while football purists will appreciate the attention to detail. And who amongst us wouldn’t enjoy the chance to crush your enemies, to see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their women….

Sorry, I got carried away… and maybe this game isn’t quite so dramatic as Conan might prefer, but it is one heck of a good time. So go forth and check out our campaign, share the good word with your friends, relatives, coworkers, neighbors, that guy at the coffee shop, the woman sitting next to you on the bus right now… whomever! We would greatly appreciate your support in bringing this game to life. We can’t do it without you, and are quite certain you will not regret it.

And remember, this is only the beginning. The Uplink Underground has many more entertaining and innovative plans in the works, and cannot wait to share them with the rest of the world. We hope you will come along for the ride. (Click HERE to pledge!)
