I have created a board game~

Post  Shizuhara on Sat Aug 18, 2012 12:17 pm

This'll be brief, because I'm trying to cook for a going-away-to-college party at the same time, but since there's a full, terribly illustrated manual, that's ok.

I've been designing games as a hobby since I was 7 or so. It's kind of what I'm known for amongst family/friends/etc. While I've done some coding, I usually stick to pen+paper. This particular game was/is planning for cpu but I decided to make a paper prototype first to hammer out the details. Eventually, I modified it to work as a board game instead because testing was so fun and I'm not going to have time to code/create artwork (or try to) in the near future.

With everything mocked up in Adobe Illustrator, it didn't take too much extra work to make it postable online. I wouldn't suggest printing it all out unless you want to spend a fortune on ink. In the next week or so, I'll post a barebones version that's a little easier on the printers.

Now, if anyone does try it out, feedback would be great. Something like 'dis gaem sux' is ok, but something more specific like 'dis gaem sux cz i cnt shot webz' would be more helpful. Whether it stays on print or jumps to code, I'll be updating this one to include in my portfolio, any and all input will be looked over.

Far more convenient download link, with concise manual~

That's true.

I made a much condensed manual, but never updated the post here xD

So I actually read most of it now....oh my gosh that's complicated. But I could see it being fun.

It seems I may have lost my measure for complexity Mad. What seemed complex, if I may ask?

I'm going to printing a set for in-house play-testing in less than a week, and online play-testing is on for after finals, so I need to get this worked out quick D:

Hm I guess it just has a lot of components is all. I wouldn't say it's anymore complex than other games that would be similar.

Replaced everything with a single link, for less intimidation factor. Included the short, letter size manual as well.
