It's NOW OFFICIAL...

Well it is finally official: I got the rights to the web address = 'http://www.monsterkeep.com'

I cannot believe the address was AVAILABLE. This is great, for $50 I have the rights to the domain for 2 years. But MORE importantly, I can actually use the "Monster Keep" name!

This is FANTASTIC NEWS!!!

why not??

Since the concept is a breeder farm, why not have breeding mechanics? So instead of them fighting at all, why not make it more like a dog show? So you can have different parent dragon cards which produce different features in breeds. Then you can get items and bonuses that enhance the dragon for the competition (scale polish, nail clippers, decoration stuff). The game ends with the winner having the most well judged dragon.

It's NOT a dog show. If you want to read more about the game, check out it's BLOG (Monster Keep: ?): http://www.bgdf.com/node/13098

This is one of several blog entries about the game... Another regarding the game's strategy is: http://www.bgdf.com/node/13143

I changed the concept to be about MONSTERS not just Dragons. Yes, the dragons are the most powerful monsters in the "Monster Deck", but the game is sort of a mix between Blackjack and Poker... I'm still working on the game - BUT it will DEFINITELY not be about FIGHTING and not a *dog show*.

What is it, you ask? It's the story of six (6) Lords who must each protect their Stronghold (Keep) from the vile Heroes that come to steal gold and treasure. The Lords must use Heroes to attract the Monsters to their Keep. The winning Lord is the one with the highest amount of *Influence* (each monster has his own "influence"). Each Lord is different from the other (different bonuses).

At the game's CORE is BIDDING and BLUFFING. You use your cards to try to capture the strongest monster each round... Each Lord has a unique *special ability* which they can use ONCE per game.

Originally the game was supposed to be derived from "Poker", but in truth the game is starting to resemble a sophisticated version of "Blackjack". In competing bids, the player with the STRONGEST hand wins the monster... Players can also use tokens (they earn during the game) to increase the value of their bid.
