Franciscan Children’s is a rehabilitative hospital and school for kids to develop strong bodies and minds after sever physiological trauma.
in Fall 2017 the Boston Globe invited me to collaborate with four of these amazing children, to help them imagine themselves as superheroes and draw comics of their new personas. I am thrilled to present the first of these collaborations here: Massimo the Great!
What a year it has been for our cooperative family card game, Monsters in the Elevator!
As one of five finalists in the 2016-2017 national Hasbro competition, we had the pleasure of consulting with members of the Hasbro team and launched an Indiegogo campaign. We needed at least 100 campaign contributors to qualify for the next stage of the contest. The previous record by a Hasbro contestant was 250 contributors, and we got nearly 400!
Over the following months we fulfilled all the orders for copies of the game. We also completed the promised storybook “Big Day in the Office” (about a little monster going to her mother’s workplace for the first time) which we hope to ship out in December. Here is the cover:
In November we attended the first ever PAX Unplugged convention in Philadelphia, where we met a dozen different publishers and pitched Monsters in the Elevator. We were thrilled by the enthusiasm and praise for the game we received!
Looking for a gift for the holidays? We have a limited supply of copies left from the Indiegogo. If you want a copy for friends or family, please let us know: Jason@YayaPlay.com
Wishing you a very happy holidays,
