Though it's been longer than I care to actually count out, I am a fan of mini-golf. It's a nice, fun, somewhat relaxing day out with friends (unless that ball just -wont- go in that hole!). But considering the weather outside right now, it's probably not ideal for minigolf. But have no fear. You can bring the fun indoors with Minigolf Designer, a new board game that's up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
Minigolf Designer is a competitive free form puzzle board game for 1 to 5 players that plays in 60 to 90 minutes (around 20 minutes per players).
In Minigolf Designer, players will compete to collect tiles representing sections of minigolf holes, and arrange them the way they want to form a 9 holes miniature golf course. However, in the end the players will gain more or less victory points depending on certain aspects of their minigolf, and also depending on the number of people drawn on their minigolf.
Tiles are proposed to the players ordered from the least to the most valuable tile (depending on the number of victory points that the tile provides), but this order becomes also the player's next turn order.
The game is simple and plays fast, as players do only one thing during their turn: pick a tile and place it on their minigolf design. After placing around 40 tiles, their minigolf is complete and players can score them to declare the winner.
The game's roughly halfway to their goal with 18 days left to go.
