We call ourselves fortunate to have met Clay from Capstone Games last year at Essen Spiel. First at the Heavy Cardboard meetup with a short hello and we did a long talk, with Mira, at the Capstone booth the day after. Clay is such a smart, wonderful and energetic guy, and together with his lovely spouse Ashley, they have something great going with their publishing house. They introduced a new label, Simply Complex, for their more accessible yet challenging games, and launched that with the excellent The Climbers.
So when the possibility came around to have a virtual sneak peek at The Estates, designed by Klaus Zoch, the second title on the Simply Complex label, we couldn’t help but comply to write a little post on it. Include the work the Dutch guys, Thijs & Daan Van Paridon, did on it too and we are very excited!
