🍂 Fall Updates: Cloud Nine, Hurt Party, new merch, events & more

Hi, everyone! It's been nearly six months since the last Pink Tiger Games post, right when the Cloud Nine digital proof came out, and so much has happened since then. I’m so excited to share so many things with you, so let’s dig in.

cloud nine is OUT!

I'm happy to say Cloud Nine: A Game of Wonderful Things arrived in August and shipped out early to all our Kickstarter backers. (If you backed the project and haven’t received yours, please log into Kickstarter and fill out your shipping information so I can send you your games.)

If you got your copy and want to share it online, please tag or message me your posts— I love seeing your photos, videos, and reading your experiences so much.

And some very big news: Cloud Nine is exclusively for sale now at Barnes & Noble until the end of the year! If you didn't get a copy yet or want to buy one for someone else, you can buy it now through their website (images coming soon) or at your local B&N.


a new game in the works

Hurt Party: A Game of Bad Apologies, a game about how not to say you’re sorry, is coming to Kickstarter in early 2024, with art by the fabulous Betty Turbo.

You can sign up on Kickstarter to be notified on launch, and I’ll be playtesting through the end of the year, so please reach out if you’d like to be among the first to play Hurt Party.

Very excited about this one, I'm trying some new things for this game and I can't wait to talk more about it.

nominated for a TAGIE

Every Friday, I read through People of Play's huge Bloom Report newsletter, filled with news about games and toys with stories linked from around the world, and I’ve dreamed about being nominated for one of their esteemed Toy & Game International Excellence Awards (aka the TAGIEs).

Well, I just learned that I'm nominated this year in the Rising Star Innovator of the Year category for Cloud Nine and Lost for Words! 😍

The winners are chosen by public voting, which is open now until October 20, 2023. You can read through the categories and nominees and vote for your favorites here.

I’d be humbled and honored if you took a moment to vote for me. (There are so many great nominees, but if you're not familiar with them, you can leave the other categories blank.)


i like your game / i love your game

If you know me, you know I love clothes, so it won't surprise you to hear that making merch is a joy.

Earlier this summer, we made new "I LIKE YOUR GAME" sweatshirts and t-shirts, and I’ve been wearing mine so much! I loved them so much, we decided to make new "I LOVE YOUR GAME" versions too, this one has a little pink tiger logo on the last letter.

I hope you love them as much as I do.
