Tumblemine: bigger board with two players


See attached GIF (hopefully the animation works). This is another try with this idea of miners digging through dirt (green discs), collecting gold (yellow discs), letting rocks (grey) fall into the water (blue) which then splashes up. This time there are 2 miners trying to get the gold and trying to outsmart each other, but at this stage the game is not developed enough for anything interesting to happen. But just like a gold miner, I feel that if I keep digging then I'm sure to hit gold!

tumble mine: an idea

This is just an idea but I think it has potential to become a little game. There's a pool of oil at the bottom of the board (the navy blue cubes) and a stack of rocks above (white cubes) and some soil holding the rocks in place (green cubes). A miner (red meeple) can dig through the soil and cause the rocks to fall into the oil. The rocks sink to the bottom which pushes the oil up. See image.

Game designs in the pipeline

This blog entry is to document some game designs I have in the pipeline and just to record some thoughts that can be reflected on later:

i) Laser Bounce [version 2 ready to playtest]: designed for the "1-card game" contest on BGG
I made some big changes to the original design and this is more or less finished now but needs more playtesting (don't they all), especially to figure out the best power output of the laser guns (which is 3 in the current rules). That contest closes July 30.
