Hello BGDF!

Overview
I’m Jason, the designer of Scribe’s Arena. This is a fantasy-themed word-solving game for 2-4 players. Players take on the role of scribes, create words, and race to solve their opponent’s first with the help of powerful God Powers, Ally Abilities, and Spell Cards.

The game’s idea and development started 8 years ago, and now it is ready for a much wider audience.

We recently demoed the game in Strategicon 2013 in LA, California, and the reception was amazing. It is definitely a game you want to check out and play for yourself…and now you can!

Do you just CHOOSE a letter?

I watched all 3 videos and my comment is on the "Playing" video (Rules and Explanation).

Do you just simply GUESS a letter of your choice? This wasn't clear... I however read the manual and it made much more sense (explaining the three (3) different types of guesses: letter, special and word).

The other comment I had was: Great job! I think the artwork looks fantastic.

How many artist did you use to make the game? There seems to be a lot of artwork!

Yep, a letter of your choice

Normal and Special guesses are a letter of your choice. If you successfully guess it, you can mark it off your game board (or if playing with paper, you can write the letter beside the spaces of the word - much like Hangman).

One think I would point out is the Turn Order - at the end of every turn you get a Normal Guess. Special Guesses just mean they are extra guesses beside your regular normal guess.

Thanks a lot for your compliment: They are a team of artists, and also some connections of mine, and I'm glad you like it!
