Winning the Spiel Des Jahres, or any of its sub categories can do wonders for a designer’s career, but it can be tricky to capitalize on doing so quickly. A new game can take two or three years to develop, by which time the buzz of the original game could die off, it’s for that reason that so many winners of the prize then go on to spend a lot of their time releasing expansions or sequels to their winning game. Button Shy games specialize in micro sized wallet games of around 18 cards which they can turn around in a few months, making teaming up with a prize winner an obvious tactic. So, Elizabeth Hargrave designing Tussie Mussie for Button Shy was an obvious teaming and one that when released on Kickstarter raised over $84k from a mighty 4,605 backers.
