#@$! - Modified Rules for STEPDOWN anyway.

Darn it. Missed the deadline.

Oh well.

Just for fun, here it is anyway:

The modified rules for STEPDOWN is that you place one of the round pieces on top of one of your hexes that make up your turn.

Whereas a normal Stepdown consisting of white hexes must be sequential & next to each other, the round pieces can be sequential but anywhere on the board to achieve the same effect.

You can't take a white hex when it's underneath a round piece but you can "over-write" then with your hex pieces entry (except that you can't effectively "replace" a round piece with another round piece but higher with your own hex piece turn).


Oh well, I'll wait 'til the next contest. Bye.

Hi all

After playtesting the 3 finalists, the game we've enjoyed the most is:

"Nameless Abstract Hex Game, Round 2"

Congratulations to "magic user"!


- The 3 games are very interesting designs.
- The setup phases of all of them (specially Magnesis ad Assasins Triad) are a bit too long. The playtesters choosed the one that took less time to setup, as they enjoyed all of them.
- Unfortunatelly the winner cannot be manufactured with my methods, as the hexes I produce have very sharp edges. When hexes surrounded by more than 3 are placed or removed from the table, the others tend to move away, forcing the players to re-configure the board constantly or be very careful when playing. (There is a simmilar problem with the game LIMIT, but in it's case it doesn't happen so often).

So I encourage "magic user" to make a themed board-version of this game that solves this little problem, as it has a lot of potential. In my opinion, it is a very good game.

Congrats again and thank you to all the participants. Its been a very interesting experiment!
