Broken and Beautiful is a card game about kintsugi, the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with golden lacquer.

  • Grant Lyon of Grant’s Game Recs called it “Card drafting and set collection… more gorgeous than Sushi Go, and also more strategic.”
  • Board Games in a Minute said, “If you are looking for a set collection game that is both beautiful and strategic… then definitely check out Broken and Beautiful.”
  • The Hungry Gamer declared it, “Much more interesting than most set collection games… I think that [fixing pottery is] just a super-clever bit of strategy.”

In addition to backing the game on Kickstarter, gamers can play a full digital version of Broken and Beautiful on Sovranti today. Sovranti is a rules-enforced online platform for tabletop games that features titles like The Isle of Cats, Planet Unknown, Forbidden Desert, Point Salad, and Cover Your Assets.

Broken and Beautiful is a fantastic design,” said Jeff Tidball, the game’s producer. “It has an elegant flow as well as a depth that rewards close attention. Give me a game like this one any day of the week.”

“I really hope people appreciate the kintsugi theme,” said designer Patrick Rauland, “[and] the philosophy that repairing can be just as beautiful as buying something new.”

Broken and Beautiful is illustrated by award-winning artist Shirley Gong (Thrive), with graphic design by Peter Wocken (Sagrada). 

The Broken and Beautiful Kickstarter will end at 6:00 PM Central time on May 20, 2022.
