Still working on that dang card game, alas

with 6 comments

So, yeah, that card game I’ve been working on for over two years, unofficially called Paranormal Activity, is going through its fourth iteration. But that’s okay because I’m finally at a place where I think 1) the rules work and 2) the game is fun. Granted, I’ve only playtested it two times in the past 730 days because I’m not pushy about it. Also, this is where I will lament my losership and severe lack of friends.

Anyways, with the rules nearly where I want them, I’ve gone and redesigned certain card types to make it easier to understand and less cluttered:

Mockup-GhostMockup-GhostHunterMockup-EventMockup-EquipmentThe game is a clear mix of Munchkin, Magic the Gathering, and Star Wars CCG. Hopefully, one day, every one of you readers will get to play it. It’ll probably be completed in 2089. You know, when I’ll be dead. Until then, keep an eye out for ghosts. Mine especially.

Go Up a Level – Change Litter Box

with 5 comments

This one’s all for Tara, who is cat-sitting four kitty cats for a week and some days. I witnessed a couple of litter box changing sessions during my short visit with her, and boy-oh-boy, nothing craps like a cat. Go up a level, darling. You’ve earned it.

You say black I say white
You say bark I say bite
You say shark I say hey man
Jaws was never my scene
And I don’t like Star Wars

No One Ever Said This Would Be Easy

2008-12-11

As always, I hold the right to never explain my genius.

Yet I’m thinking the reason I wrote this note down was because, normally, I’d never do anything at all before The Office would come on, less I risk missing some of it or something. But the power that is Tara, the power that is Tara wanting to play Munchkin…it’s too hard to resist. How I’d draw something like that is beyond me. So enjoy the blob monsters.

Question of the day: Did you say this would be easy?

Round each corner there’s a chance

People searching glance to glance

Moving about real fast

Like insects and fish when they’re scared

Everyone Beats Me At Munchkin, Ha Ha Ha

…just kidding. It’s awesome that Tara and D both wanted to play and learned how to play fast. Munchkin really is a fun game, and though it takes a bit to explain it is always a good time. As for Munchkin Booty, the latest and greatest base set for the card game all about treasure and backstabbing your friends, it’s pretty good. Some classes, of course, are better than others, with pirates being a bit overpowered in their ability to grab treasure cards with ease. The monsters are hilarious…and potentially dangerous, as sharks often follow other sharks into battle. The only disappointing aspect I’d say so far is that the ship cards are kind of bland, even with the slim pickings of enhancers to put on them. Still, it’s a wonderful set to start new gamers on for its simplicity, and every card is written in pirate-speak. Yarr.

Oh, and I just saw that an expansion is almost ready, at the printers…called Munchkin Booty 2: Jump the Shark!!! Eeee!11!!1!

Yes! Yesyesyes! More ships, a new class, and the elusive Moby Duck! I WANT THIS RIGHT NOW.

The ghost of the ghost
Barely exists
But he knows what he knows
And he wants to be sure that you see him

#320 – Ghost Hunters, the Card Game

with 10 comments

The card game, originally dubbed Ghost Hunters, is still a work-in-progress as it needs a little more playtesting (ahem) before I decide if it succeeds more than it fails. I’d call it a mix of the Star Wars CCG, the Lord of the Rings CCG, and Munchkin. D seemed to like it, but one-on-one proved to be no challenge for capturing ghosts, especially since once she got one under her belt the two that followed were like stealing candy for a baby ghost. So yeah, I have a few more ideas that I want to toy with, but I’m liking what I’ve got here and who knows, if I can get it further along I might just try and find someone to publish it…

Also, this isn’t the first game I’ve created on my own. Simply said, I have a lot of free time and little money. This is how I entertain myself…well, one of the ways. There’s also writing, drawing, and music-making. Okay, enough out of me. I need coffee.

Today’s question: What’s your favorite game (boardgame or otherwise) from your childhood?

Mine would be Mastermind. Bitsy and I used to play it all the time, despite me never being terribly great at it.

All at once the ghosts come back
Reeling in you now
What if they came down crushing
Remember when I used to play for
All of the loneliness that nobody
Notices now
