I put together a print n play version of a game I'm calling Termite Tiles for now. Its nothing fancy but I found it to be amusing and I figured I would throw it out for some feedback. What's an easy way to host a zip file for free distribution? I have an internet issue, my only connection is through my cheap straight talk android phone, so if there's a way I can upload from a mobile device, that's a plus. Otherwise I can do it later when I'm near a real computer with the intarwebs. Any ideas?

If anyone is interested, its a tile game inspired by carcassonne, not blatant rip-off I hope :) I have some variations of rules in mind, but the basic gameplay is there and seems solid. I printed the tiles on 6 sheets of cardstock and cut them out with an xacto knife, they work pretty well. If you find any issues let me know how I can address them.

I like the idea, but I would've called it "Termite Tunnels" instead.
The only thing I didn't like about the game was the fact that if your tokens are overpowered in a tunnel, you lose them. This would create a runaway leader who you can't pass, because they have more tokens than you do...

Thanks for taking a look at it. I wasn't real sure about the capturing, I had in mind a variation with a queen termite that would allow the players to generate more termites and perhaps capturing their queen would end the game or something. Still thinking about it.

I found that trouble too. Kinda like Settlers of Catan: Cities and Knights. Just impossible to pass after a certain point.

Thanks for looking at it. I thought it might be an issue, but it seemed in practice to be somewhat difficult to accomplish capturing another player's termite and usually can be averted if paying attention. but admittedly I haven't played it enough myself to know how the rule might affect gameplay overall. I'm still trying to come up with some components to add depth, maybe a little complexity to the strategy, as well.
