Quality control in board games

“From the manufacturing standpoint, quality control together with prototyping and playtesting are intertwined parts of a journey towards making sure that components of the final production copies don’t leave anything at all to be desired.

Would you like to know more about basic principles of the quality control process? Then take a look at this article! It’s based on an interview with Marek, Boardcubator’s art director, in which he shares what goes into the quality control from the first reference prototype all the way to the final mass-production copy of a game.

Giveaway — What’s your take on game components?

You have probably noticed that we pay a lot of attention to the quality of the components and to the tactile aspect of games, so it is great to both play the game and play with it. We’d really love to hear what you think about what kind/shape/material of components you enjoy in games, and we want to give away one of our games in the process.

We’re giving away a copy of one of our games (your choice) to one person who joins the discussion by responding to the questions in the survey.
