Be Legend - Ragnarok
June 24, 2015
Mark Laufer
Be Legend grew out of an earlier board game I designed but eventually scrapped. I took all the best ideas from that and, along with the criticisms I had received, evolved it into what you see today. I have a great personal interest in history, mythos, and the need for humanity to make things greater than ourselves.

Added new Blog section to website

In this blog we will be exploring Battle Reports which is a character strategy section. Behind the scene look on the development of Be Legend - Ragnarok. Articles of the components of the game. Manufacturer updates and many more.

Miners of Axiom

Miners of Axiom was a simple card game which was created as a distraction from attempting to write novels set in the same universe. The games simplicity makes it easy enough to share as my first blog post should anyone ever want to play it (for reasons beyond me).

It has a nice balance between luck and planning and frustration, that being lots of frustration and planning with little luck.

Tradewars - Homeworld: The age of diplomacy

Well I wanted to take some "notes" about some of the "meta game" ideas that may be used during a game with the "Chancellor" role.

Types of Treaties:

Here are the different types of treaties.

  • I am the Chancellor, let us all draw +1 card: simple enough, just a way of introducing the "meta game" to the game itself...
  • Non-agression Pact: the allies will stick together and destroy the first player who goes on the offensive.
  • Mission treaties: on a per mission basis make deals to barter up help to

  • Tradewars - Homeworld: What's new???

    I actively use this forum to blog and keep thoughts of mine concerning some of my Works-In-Progress (WIP). Specifically the WIP I am talking about today is "Tradewars - Homeworld". I have posted several updates and wanted to make a sort of a reminder where the game is and what is NEW with this game.

    I know, the game is not published, how can there be things that are NEW?!?! Well what I mean is the changes between the different rounds of testing.

    Why Do We Crowd Fund?

    The Game Crafter - Why do we crowd fund?

    The Game Crafter's CEO, JT Smith, discusses why TGC crowd funds board games, beyond the obvious reasons. Check out the video at http://news.thegamecrafter.com/post/121279481385/jt-briefly-discusses-why-tgc-crowd-funds-board

    Also, Parkies launched on Kickstarter yesterday and funded in just 15 hours! Parkies is a bidding and building game for 2 to 5 players. The game comes with more than 60 unique attractions. However, in Parkies your goal is to not only build an incredible theme park filled with amazing attractions, but you must also attract the parkies.

    Broke the game!

    Example of Play.jpg

    Every playtest has been great. I little change here and there...

    That is, until my friends got it on Saturday. With no restrictions, taking all armor and all weapons, they broke the game in twain. I was a bit disheartened, especially since we played a full game, took 2 hours, and half of them weren't having fun. I had to document this here since it is valuable information and allowed me to further refine the game through card restriction and retooling cards.

    Max 5 copies of a card. Max 8 defense cards.
