The Making of Churrascaria – Part 4
It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything on this site. When I started rapid prototype revision to my current game, I decided that my methods might be worth sharing. As with any game, the first few versions of Winter Rabbit were rough, quickly thrown together, and ugly. As I’ve started to lock in mechanics […]
The Making of Churrascaria – Part 3
Been busy the last few weeks between attending Super! BitCon here in OKC, getting interviewed by a local podcast, and generally trying to spread the word of Churrascaria around here. Figured it was time to get back to the design diary. Last time we looked at the food cards in general. This time I wanted […]

The Making of Churrascaria – Part 1

New Churrascaria Prototype!

I have been working on Churrascaria now for a little over two years, and in that time it has gone through at least sixteen major revisions, countless minor revisions, and hundreds of playtests. All to bring it to its current incarnation, which while very close to final, may […]
I am excited to announce that we received the first professionally printed prototype for Churrascaria in the mail yesterday morning and then managed to get 6 excellent play tests with it at the Oklahoma Board Game Community’s game day at the Coop Brewery here in Oklahoma. Overall response was great, we still have a few minor things to […]
