Not sure if I am in the right part of the forum to discuss this, but I'm right now working on a new board game ideal called "Add 'Em Up". The rules are all set and ready to go. I'm right now looking for people that are willing to read them, look them over and make some comments, constructive criticism and/or creative input about it. Here's a quick overview on what the game is about:

"Two teams are shown a plus sign-shaped board with directions on it; behind each direction are words. The competing teams go back and forth adding up the clues and guessing the center word or category in two rounds. In the LINK round, it’s all about guessing the middle word that links up with the ones around it. In the BOND round, you add up the clues to figure out what they all have in common. The faster your team solves a puzzle, the more points you score."

I would love for any of you out there to give me a second opinion on the rules and help me to improve it so it'll have a chance to be strong enough to publish. Interested? PM me w/ your E-mail address so I can send the info. out to you.

Thank you all for your time!

for example

I don't think I have a clear idea of your game. Could you give an example of a player completing a word, perhaps a pic of the board? How would a round go? How many points or how long does the game go for?

@red hare: Feel free to give me your E-mail address and I'll send you a copy of the rules to look over. It should be able to answer all of the questions you asked.

@hulken: Thanks for the address. The E-mail is on it's way!

Any other takers? Let me know, I'll be looking forward to hearing from you.

Check

I don't know if I got the mechanics right, but you may want to check the DaVinci Code boardgame. It's less than US$10 and has some weird components to solve game puzzles. Ass many puzzle games, it becomes repetitive fast.

Keep thinking!
