Fit to Print is a puzzly tile-laying game about breaking news, created by Peter McPherson and set in a charming woodland world created by Ian O’Toole!
Thistleville is the world’s most bustling little town — it is a challenge to keep up with everything going on, from who took home first prize for their baked goods at the community fair to who has been digging in Mrs. Brambleberry’s carrot patch.
As an editor at one of the local papers, your job is to tell their stories!
The front page is due in just a couple hours and you have no time for perfection. Grab the big stories before the other papers get a chance, and make sure you have the right photos too. A newspaper is a business, so the money has to come from somewhere — do not forget the ads! After you have picked out a combination of stories, photos, and ads, it’s time to lay out the front page. Did you take enough tiles to fill your paper, but not so many that things have to be cut? Over the course of three hectic days, your skills will be put to the test as you compete to be the most newsworthy editor!
Fit To Print is a tile-laying game for the entire family. Players will simultaneously collect newspaper tiles, stacking them on their desks until they think they have what they need to make the perfect front page. Then, they will yell “Layout!” and begin to lay out the page by carefully thinking of the placement of centerpieces, articles, photographs, and advertisements. When everything is just right, they will yell “Print” to be the first off the press and gain their choice of centerpiece for the next round! This hectic spatial puzzle contains over 100 unique newspaper tiles, 6 characters with their own special abilities, as well as 3 decks of Breaking News cards — so that each and every time you play you'll be solving a new puzzle!
If real-time games are not your style, Fit to Print has a number of alternative modes to satisfy every type of puzzle gamer. In Slo-Mode players will take turns drafting tiles from a shared market and arranging them on their front pages. In Puzzle Mode, take a specific set of tiles and put together the highest-scoring arrangements. Whether you enjoy relaxing solo puzzles on your own, or frenetic action for up to 6 players, you'll have a blast helping the critters of Thistleville tell their stories!
