Button Shy is the little guy in a big world. A small board game publisher trying to make an impact on a fast paced industry with thousands of new games a year. Without being able to compete with low prices or large print runs, Button Shy is simply just doing things it’s own way.

Join our Board Game of the Month Club and you can receive the following:

First And Foremost, A Big Thank You - For helping us continue to release cool little games that otherwise may never see the light of day.

Postcard Games (All levels) - For 2019 we are releasing Chain Mail, an Adventures of Earthshine variable postcard game for 1-4 players. In the first month of the year (or in the month that you join) you will receive a welcome package with character cards, resource cards, and a card of tokens (these can be used or replaced with some tokens of your own). And then each month we will send out a new postcard map (extra thick stock), new enemies and more. All of these are interchangeable to provide an endless batch of dungeon quests to keep you busy throughout the year, and hopefully after. (Designed by Jason Greeno and Jason Tagmire)

Roll and Write Games (All levels) - Well this one isn't "roll" and write, but fits the category otherwise. Tempus Quest is a dices roll and write that uses the time of the day to setup the game and resolve conflicts. It's set in our Pocket Universe, so expect a space adventure each month. You'll receive a physical copy to play once, and a pdf link to reprint and play over and over. (Designed by Chris Anderson)

Extra Promos Or Microgames ($10+ levels) - Each month you will receive one of the following: A new game of up to 9 cards, one or more small expansions to existing Button Shy Games, a faction for Anthelion (our January 2019 Wallet Game), or a standalone expandable mech game by James O' Connor. 

Print And Play Games - Early print and play versions of our upcoming games or games that we're playing around with.

Discounts On Our Monthly Kickstarter Wallet Games - Supporters here get discounts from 10% to 100% off.  

A Member Card / T-Shirt - Everyone gets a card, but depending on your reward level, you might get a cool T-Shirt too! 

Access to the secret BGOTC channel on the Button Shy Discord. So many good people to chat with!

NOTE: International supporters - The USPS is not our friend. Shipping on the $5 level will cost $1 extra, the $10 level will cost $2 extra and the $20 level will cost $14 extra (as a tiny wallet game costs a whopping $14 to ship). For those of you who want to support the $20 level, but the shipping is too much. We can hold your packages and ship every 3 months to save you some shipping costs. At that rate, it would just be an extra $5 per month. Just send us a message and we'll work it out.

This is the start of the Board Game of the Month Club. We're starting with some postcard sized games, then we'll be expanding to some micros and then we'll see how big it gets. All support is appreciated and helps a very small publishing company do things that are a little outside the norm. So what do you get...?
