Heard by the Watering Hole

Dude, this game rocks!
-Andrew Ferrell, Chatsworth Ca USA
I love it because it’s a fun cross between chess and rock, paper, scissors. It’s a rare combination of easy to learn and challenging.
-Leslie Stranahan, Austin Tx USA
This game is awesome! I think Barca is a backwards acronym for Andrew Caldwell’s Really Awesome Boardgame!
-Shawn the Skydiver, Perris Ca USA
After I started playing Barca I became one with the universe, made more money, and everyone wants and wants to be me. Get Barca Now!

Welcome to the Lowdown


It was one of those perfect summer days on the savanna. The sun’s soft rays flickered through the tree while I grazed on the sweet leaves. A gentle breeze in air brought to my attention that other animals where near by. Pausing my snack, I raised my head even higher to look around. Upon viewing my surroundings, I came to see a watering hole in the distance with some activity. But the animals by the watering hole where behaving differently than I had ever seen before. Fascinated, I kept watching.


They where running around the watering holes jumping in and out. At first only the lions and elephants could be seen, and after giving it more attention, I also saw mice. How strange, what were the mice, lions and elephants doing? My curiosity got the better of me and I headed down to find out.


I strode up to one of the elephants, as I’ve always found them to be the most polite, and asked what was going on. She replied they where playing a game they made up. In one minute the elephant explained to me of this game where nobody stops playing until everyone stops playing. She told me that playing this is better because nobody has to sit out and watch the others play. It was so simple and yet engaging. As I asked the elephant the name of this new game, a mouse jumped into the air exclaiming “Barca!” as he cannonballed into the watering hole (it was really more of a golf ball than a cannonball).


That was my introduction to Barca and I’ve been a fan ever since. And I think you’ll be a fan too when you get to know how to play. So with my natural abilities of looking around I’m going to report where to get Barca, where to play Barca and any Barca related events. I’m calling my report the Lowdown.


Welcome to the Lowdown, where you’ll get the latest Barca news!

Welcome to Drew’s Hues



Sing through me, Muse, the man of many fortunes, driven to wander…


Barca is a fun board game that people enjoy playing.

Andrew Caldwell is the person who created the game Barca.

People who like Barca or Andrew Caldwell may like the other.


That was dry, guess I’ll write more like I talk instead.


The purpose of this website? To sell the game Barca by informing people of all things Barca. It seems people are more likely to support a product when they know the person behind it, hence this web log. To tell of this journey, still in progress, of bringing Barca to market.


Didn’t know all that was in store for me, but then do any of us? So while this tale is still unfolding, you can get to know who I am and maybe you’ll say;


“This Drew guy is okay, I’m going to get Barca!”

“I know somebody who would like Barca as a gift!”

“You should check out this game Barca!”


While writing this web log, I’ll be happy to answer any questions you have about Barca and of life. Though I would suggest the former as I have better knowledge of that. And if so inclined, you might learn some things about doing this yourself.


Barca probably won’t change your life, but I will tell you how it has changed mine.


Beginning where I may…
