Damask by Radical 8 Games Radical 8 Games
Spin silk and mount beautiful patterns in this beautiful game by Barbara Burfoot. 1-4 players compete to be the best silk weaver by matching Damasks to gain coin and impress the fashion tastes of the Weavers' Guild. An ingenious spinning wheel determines which silk you can gather, as well as the actions of other players, who can help or hinder by sharing their thread. Damask is a beautiful original family game full of hidden depth.

In Damask, players play as master weavers, each attempting to weave the best silk patterns. The player who weaves the best collection of damasks wins!

European traders first encountered the Chinese silk patterns in the city of Damascus, and gave them the name 'Damask'. We have worked hard to represent the style and beauty of those patterns in Damask, a clever yet easily accessible game. Our unique components, such as the spinning wheel, don't just look amazing on the table, but also enable interesting choices which make for an original and fun game. Damask is easy to learn, but still has deep decisions resulting from the clever intertwining of its mechanics.

Damask has funded on Gamefound, and we have now opened up the pledge manager for anybody who wants to make a late pledge. If you are interested in how the game plays, please watch the run-through video below:




Kimberley from Rahdo Runs Through has given some fantastic Final Thoughts here- please give it a watch as they perfectly encapsulate what Damask is all about:
