3D Printed Game Pieces & BerlinGameScene

Talk&Play #12 - photo by Julian Dasgupta

Besides the PDF for the board game and pieces, we are planning to provide also a 3D file for CurrencyLab players to be able to print their own game pieces.

The first prototypes for the pieces were tested during the “Talk & Play”, a bi-montly event by BerlinGameScene.com, where local game developers gather to meet, chat and bring their games to be playtested.

We also had the opportunity to give a short talk about the game before the play sessions. As expected, the majority of the audience knew about Bitcoin, but only one person had heard of the Wörgl, and none of the Cubo Card and the Bangla-Pesa, which are some of the examples featured in the game’s booklet.

There was a lively Q&A afterwards and the audience seemed to share the interest for one of my favorite topics, the Gift Economy. Below some pictures of the event. (*NEW* Click to watch the video of the presentation and Q&A)
