Board Game Hub is an independent publishing company based in the South West of England. Our aim is to create high-quality games with excellent (and appropriate) components. We try to operate with complete transparency in everything we do and love to collaborate with designers, artists, playtesters, distributors, retailers and other publishers.

Tristam has been busy making amazing artwork for our 2022 release Tusky Joe's Snorkel Adventure. 1-4 players go diving for beautiful treasures worth a variable number of points depending on the difficulty of successfully salvaging them. We believe that the game appeals to both families and gamers and so wanted to strike a balance in the visual style of the game so as to satisfy both potential audiences.

There are many steps to publishing a board game and they all have their attractions. One of the most exciting phases is actually getting the final product into your hands. But before we get to that point there's an awful lot of work to be done!

As the dust settles after the campaign for Tranquility: The Ascent, we can start to turn our focus to the next game in our pipeline: currently titled Tusky Joe's Snorkel Adventure (though if I get my way, the word Captain will be in there somewhere!!). The first design by James Hitchmough, artist for Lilypads print-and-play, graphic designer of the Tranquility: The Ascent rulebook and all-round good guy.

At 5pm on Monday 2nd August, the Kickstarter campaign for Tranquility: The Ascent concluded with 1,872 backers pledging a total of £43,586. We will call this an unqualified success and it has effectively secured the short-term future of Board Game Hub. We can now take this momentum and fully commit to our next two projects which we can't wait to share with you.

With five days left to go on the Tranquility: The Ascent Kickstarter campaign, it's brilliant to see us past £30,000 and with 4 stretch goals unlocked! Every backer will now receive amazing screen-printed meeples, foil-finish Campfire cards, downloadable playmat artwork and a linen-textured box.

I had a ridiculous idea recently for the Tranquility: The Ascent Kickstarter campaign. Why not see if I could raise some money for charity doing an ambitious three peaks challenge?
