Monster Keep — Traps and Chaos gems

As you all know, I have decided to REMOVE the "symbols" off the cardbacks because I felt they were too "intrusive". The good news is that some Actions like "Soul Gaze" (1 AP) and "Bury Dead" (2 AP) can be done at any time.

However the "Traps" which require 2d6s and an 8 or higher to collect loot were still undecided (how would they be handled?!) Well I have good news that I have found a "simple" mechanic to make traps work.

5 Green Cubes are added to the Loot bag.

Monster Keep — *NEW* cardbacks

Monster Keep — Simplified 90% design

Well if you've read one of my earlier threads, the "LOOT" Tactical system has "revealed" a *new* way to handle combat within the game. This new combat system is much, much, much simpler than the one using the Online Calculator such that I can REMOVE both the "Calculator" and the "Scoresheet" from existence. That's right with this new system, those electronic add-ons are no longer necessary.

Quest Adventure Cards(tm) — Not just about "Set Collection"

Recently I was "again" inspired by the original "Set Collection" game but wanted more "innovative" mechanics to go along with the basic mechanic present in the original game.

My thoughts turned to "dice" games which invoke a sense of "LUCK". And I pondered on HOW the "Set Collection" mechanic was also luck-based too.

And then I had an interesting thought: what if the "Set Collection" was COMBINED with a "Push-Your-Luck" (PYL) mechanic?!?!

Quest Adventure Cards(tm) — The Adventure Starts Anew!

Well it has been quite a while since I have worked on (or blogged) with regards to "Quest Adventure Cards(tm)", the Second (2nd) Edition. Of course the design was "in-the-pipe"... but not really going anywhere.

TradeWorlds: The End of an Era

Well I guess I wanted to post this thread to share with all the other Game Designers about the pitfalls and problems that one may encounter AFTER a successful KS. It was about 2 Years ago, in 2017 when we launched our KS for "TradeWorlds" (at the time it was called "Tradewars — Homeworld").

We got more funds than expected with over 250% the original Funding Goal... We were all happy about the results and the accomplishment. But unfortunately that was 2 years ago...

Monster Keep — Refactoring the Design

Monster Keep — Re-vamping an old design

My latest artist has finished the NEW Logo for "Monster Keep". I love the new logo... I think it looks pretty cool! I think Madison did a wonderful job in bringing to life a "mock-up" that I had designed. Although she has a real busy schedule, I am hoping to sign her for the remainder of the artwork for the game...!

Some format issues:

  1. 15 Card Booster which includes everything (besides 1d6) to play.

  2. 2 Boosters for two-player game play...


SpellMasters — What's New???

I've started re-working on this design, now that I have "unblocked" a few of the problems with the original design. I was stuck... but now have a NEW direction to explore with more ideas that could work with this design...

I've since corrected the image because it had some pixelation...

Combinatorics: And the "Metro-like" CCG

A very long time ago, maybe about five (5) years ago... I played a older game called "Metro" designed in 1997 ( I lost the game, only because I did NOT interfere in one player's configuration... But I was already dealing with two other players and trying to foil their best intentions.

I really didn't LIKE the overall experience of the game. Because had everyone messed with everyone else's configurations, the winner would have been much harder to determine and I probably would have won... Or so I believe!
