When I Iaunched Tipsy Tiles in late 2020, I made the games entirely by hand. Pairing a good glass of red wine and a few sharpie pens, I would spend hours each night fashioning a set - stenciling a phrase onto each wooden tile. These days, I have thankfully automated the process. At the beginning of this year, I adopted a laser engraver and named him Bruno. *said in a thick Italian accent* Bruno takes the designs for each set and burns them onto the tiles. Bruno can more than triple the weekly output I was making by hand. And I love him for it.
Laser engraving means that our tiles are resilient against your raucous gaming. Go ahead: spill that tequila shot, knock over your friend's beer. The tiles will still look sharp the next morning.
Once Bruno burns the designs onto the fronts and backs of the tiles, it is time for packaging. I do a quick spot check to make sure your set has its 90 rules. Then I nestle the tiles into their box and wrap them up to send to your door.
