Sure it does - I'm looking forward to "Fire In The Library" which is a fun push your luck style game with cards and cubes. I'm also awaiting Dawn of The Zeds 3rd edition from Victory Point games. There are plenty of solid board games without a butt-load of plastic minis. They just don't generate headline making amounts of dosh like the plastic pushers do.

Ha, matter of fact, my wife (then gf) called me out on crushing on that friend when I was working with her like seven years ago. Gf found it hilarious watching me go red and stuttering denials. The friend wound up being an honorary bridesmaid at our wedding, and she lives a few blocks away from us now. Shes an artist, cosplayer, and loves her motorcycle (which the ex was too afraid to ever ride on). That I get to invite her and current bf over for boardgames is just icing on the cake

Pic related is her cat.

>What game do you own that just doesn't match the rest of your collection?

I liked your pic. It was worth saving. It's definitely not what one would expect to see in a game of Stronghold. I can already hear the Orc & Goblin attackers "Kill the men! Kill the elves! Save the green waifus for ourselves!"

As for replacement parts - I'm going to have to email Queen Games and see if I can get a replacement box for my brand new copy of Shogun. (Snagged it a PAX Unplugged for $30) I got home and apparently somewhere in airline baggage handling my suit case was harpooned by a forklift or some other industrial equipment. One corner of the upper box lid is split and the bottom has a big ding in it as well.

It's not the nose as much as her maxilla being recessed and taking the nose's carthilage with it. Notice the wrinkles.
That gal doesn't have a good mouth posture, probably has a malocclusion and she hides it in pictures by jutting her jaw forwards, it's obvious in pic related

>>63400176
Fix your teeth anon! And don't get braces, get a palate expander! Your objective should be to be able to close your mouth comfortably so you can keep it that way and breathe through your nose. That's how you get a good jaw and a healthy ( read: attractive ) face.

>goddamn
>>
>>63400226
Good luck. Getting teeth pulled sucks because it always causes the face to recede, as there are less teeth to keep the mouth forward.

Anyways, make sure to take note of your oral health: do you breathe through your nose or your mouth? Is your palate wide or narrow? Do you regularly consume food that is tough to chew ( meat, for example ) or only eat soft stuff that won't train your jaw?
Don't answer to me, take note of those things yourself and act accordingly. That's how you solve problems if there are any.

>palate expander
doesnt this shit only work if your growing, not a 2X faggot?
>>
>>63400571
No. They simply need to be sturdier and they take a bit more.
I got mine when I was 21, two years and a couple months later I took it off. I had already started looking much better like 6 months into the treatment though: jaw was moving forwards ( because it pushed my upper teeth forwards ), cheeks got hollow, jawline got defined etc.
Braces are terrible because in a young lad they make the palate narrower ( which is terrible because if your palate is narrow you can't close your mouth properly ), and in an older person they require the removal of wisdom teeth which always results in a receded face.

Huh, maybe I need to get her to try some dudes on maps. She one of the few people I game with that I haven't exposed to the genre. When the table argues that fighting in mare nostrum is never beneficial, I know I've gone astray.

I played A Feast for Odin on TTS and it was fun but the only stipulation of solo is that you should try to get over 100 and I blew that out with over 150 points. It's a really great game though I'm neutral on the way dice were implemented. The problem is while I'd love to get a copy to play multiplayer, it's obscenely expensive and I don't think I'd get my money's worth of plays out of it. Easy 9/10 if the multiplayer has as much replayability as this one play makes it appear though.

Damn. Yeah that's way too much. I'm guessing it costs more because it's made in europe and has to ship all the way there? I don't know.

Not outdated - but I found it just unappealing. The basic mechanics are sound, but the artwork is 'Meh', the theme is uninspiring to me, and frankly having umpteen different ways to try and fast-track your way to the greatest gold generating engine in order to buy the best cards on the market just didn't grab me. If that sound like a good time and right up your alley, then Dominion is the game for you. Personally I felt like any number of Euro games do essentially what Dominion does but in a more appealing fashion.

I don't agree with that summation of his stance. "Compounding the PR crises" could easily refer to the number of people who don't understand production times and overlap complaining on KS that "why are they starting a new project when the last one isn't finished?"

Further, I think from his other points that he's also referring to the financial risk involved: They need a cash infusion for this window of time, and they're unsure if the smaller Kickstarter they're releasing will be sufficient. However, a BIG Kickstarter could fail or underperform as well, and leave them in an even WORSE spot than they are now.
>>
>>63416890
yeah I might've exaggerated a little, but I was generally referring to the practice of getting money from new KS to fuel old ones and being concerned by "PR crises" while the issue of delivering the products seemed secondary to him.

Maybe I'm getting all this wrong and he's a honest person who's just made a few mistakes, but that post screams to me both a PR and a commercial fuckup.

one way tripfag who is not STEEV, there is only one way in each game. that's what makes it shallow- 1000 kinds of bread, 1000 kinds of cheese, 1000 pans to cook in and you still just have grilled cheese every fucking time.

how about you tell me what makes it deep because you're claiming it's deep. Dominion is easily fixed by playing something better: Arctic Scavengers, VotK, tanto cuore, hell Clank! is better than dominion, at least you have to come up with a strategy and make some adaptive decisions based on the market and your deck.
>>
>>63415436

>>
>>63414864
I played Dominion hundreds of times after it was released. It held up for a good long while before we burned out on it. I'd still play it if someone asked me to, though I would never suggest it myself. Would rather see Arctic Scavengers hit the table (or one of the Legendary titles, preferably Marvel, but those are co-op so) or one of the pool builders that aren't cards, but seriously, most people will get a lot of fun out of Dominion. If you buy it, play it, and really enjoy it like loads of people have, you aren't losing out. If you play another deck builder afterwards that you enjoy even more - great. Now you get to enjoy that as well after emptying the first source of fun.

I'm not really worked up one way or the other on the depth argument. I'm simply saying that for me personally, Dominion as a deck-builder just didn't appeal to me at all. I will gladly play other deck builders like Arctic Scavengers, Helionox, Core Worlds, etc. Just not Dominion.

tl:dr Dominion = OK mechanics wise, but uninteresting to me in terms of samey strategy and theme / artwork.
>>
>>63417603
>how about you tell me what makes it deep because you're claiming it's deep

I'm literally not. You must be confusing me with the anon before. I'm not him. I'm legitimately just curious what you think of as depth. I'm not trying to be combative about this. I was asking what you think would make Dominion more deep, or what you could consider to be depth in a game like Dominion. It just seems you dislike it because you have to build an engine each game or something? It's not like the way to do that and make it most efficient doesn't change. You make it seem like you've only played against 3rd graders or something, as if the game is too easy for you to figure out and win every time. I've played a number of very close games with people utilizing vastly different strategies to achieve victory and don't really see the issues you seem to have with it. Like, sure, if you put some certain cards in, it becomes really obvious, but those can easily be avoided.

To each his own, though. If you don't like it, that's that, and that's fine. But I like it. I was just wondering your perspective about its depth, but you've just been combative about it.
>>
Dominion's only problem is shitty point system, that wasn't really thought out when designing it. Just play the base game and you realize that they seriously didn't think it through. Other than that it's just as basic deckbuilder that you can create, I don't know what you can hate about that.

Out of interest, what don't you like about the Dominion scoring? I think it's quite clever - cashing in for points makes your deck less effective, so it helps to avoid runaway leaders.

Points based games are SHIT. You should win by killing your opponent or reaching some condition before them, not just having more points when time runes out. Games that are scored end abruptly and feel hollow.

Not him, but there is a valid criticism at the high level regarding Provinces and first player advantage, but it's fixed with a simple house rule (tl;dr: if a non-last player buys the last province, everyone after them can buy "phantom provinces" if able until everyone has had the same number of turns, same with depleting last supply pile).

It's 1 - 4 dungeon crawler. It will have cardboard cutouts for playing pieces and enemies.

I guess I could have a stretch goal to make these into plastic miniatures.

I'm focusing on the design right now, I'm marrying roguelike dungeon generation with custom dice to mitigate RNG - ways for the player to use their bad rolls for other actions, save, lock down dice etc.

How the fuck do I find a publisher? Will a publisher expect me to have all the art for the game sorted?

>Will a publisher expect me to have all the art for the game sorted?
God no, their job is to take an interesting design, and then work with you on graphic design, components, art direction, any further development, etc. You make the skeleton, they add the flesh that can be sold at market.
>>
>>63419674
as fun as they are, 90% of published games look like shit though. Europoor design etc.

A lof of the Kickstarter stuff at least look decent.

I don't want a publisher to ship the game with deviantart-tier fanart.

I've been searching artists for the last two weeks, and have found like 4 that fit my style.
But they always end up being too expensive - and rightly so.
>>
>>63419806
>But they always end up being too expensive - and rightly so.
Publisher is going to be more stingy than a Kickstarter if necessary. Publishing house can't be 100% sure how well a game is gonna sell, where as other KS the creators already have the funds to pay for the art. Which means you'll probably have less control over the look of your game unless it's a larger entity that splurges on assets like FFG.
Hit up Brad Talton of LVL99 games on how he navigated the art portion of his games. He's always depended heavily on KS, but the first edition of Battlecon is completely different art and aesthetic wise from Devastation onwards. He's always seemed engaged with the community, maybe he could give some useful pointers.

"It has been said that every time a custom dice is created, a game designer cries"

IMHO, a deck of results or a bag of chits (OG Arkham LCG had this) is better then dice. And you can customize the deck and chits to create varying difficulty levels. That said, neither are as satisfying as rolling dice.
>>
>>63420774
>neither are as satisfying as rolling dice.

This. I'm trying to have that nice feel for rolling dice, but try to give more power to the player.

e.g. if a player attacks an enemy first, they are allowed to re reroll all of the dice they don't like.

During an attack they roll:

Attack Dice
Defence Dice
Dexterity Dice
Their unique class Dice
Equipped Weapon Dice

Before the enemy rolls, the player decides what to spend the dice on, be it an attack ability, a weapon ability, defence ability, etc.

I'm also toying with consumable dice like stamina and mana, that Once rolled, it becomes consumed unless recovered.

Not really, no. Their model quality was pretty bad back then. I wouldn't touch anything outside of Rue Morgue from Modern Zombicide.

It's a decent dice chucker (probably the best for a dice-chucking dungeon crawl). I'm the idiot with a bajillion house rules for BP/GH, I guarantee if he's looking at buying a KS set he's played it before and wants to expand what he has (which, if it's modern, oh well).

Dead of Winter is a completely different style of game altogether, apples to squirrels. Suggest another dice-chucker and we can discuss that.

If you have modern, that's fine I suppose, it's just worth mentioning that GP/GH has an order of magnitude more content in terms of variance, but it's all hard to track down at the moment anyway. I know a reprint is due EVENTUALLY but apparently it hasn't hit stores yet (should be restocking almost everything, from guest boxes to wolves/crows/etc).

That being said, it's easier to get a hold of modern stuff in general since it's older and lower quality, so that's a benefit if you prefer the modern theme; I know I do, but between the low quality minis and massive upgrade overall going from modern to fantasy, it's difficult for me to overlook. Bright side is that there's a Zombicide RPG coming out Q4 next year that's apparently focused on Modern, for some dumb fucking reason.

Sup /tg/. I'm designing a boardgame

Critique on a very rough mock up of a character board?

Each character's stats are represented by how many dice the have available.

red - attack
blue - defence
yellow - dexterity
green - move

grey - stamina - these are consumable and gone until recovered, used for rerolls, boosts etc.
black - class dice, these are class specific and can be used to boost, however they are needed for class specific abilities.
orange - weapon and armour dice - these can be added if you have weapon or armour equipped.


After rolling you place and lock in dice in 16mm spaces on attack, defend or abilities or weapons (if equipped)

Dice will have custom faces. I'm not explaining it very well.

I'm 'borrowing' the art right now, not my own. Will have to pay for it when about to print the final game.
>>
>>63420270
Typical ameritrash virgin, puts more weight on the theme than the actual game.
>>
After a fair amount of matches I've come to realize Stone Age sucks, and despite it being an euro the luck factor is incredibly high for the following reason:
- huts are unbalanced, and special ones let you get too many points
- civilization instant/late effects are fixed, so you already know what you plan on getting and what not, and which bonus said cards will give you in the immediate
- civilization cards are broken too, and some combinations are vastly superior than others
- you can't alter dice results the same way burgundy lets you unless you have a lot of tools, leading to bizarre situations
- you do not get multiple penalties for each food you lack, and in late game 10 points are expendable if you keep buying huts or high-valued civilization cards

Anyone else bothered by all of this? The structure is really nice but all this points makes it undesirable.

Will do, but I don't expect a lot of depth on this on, it's mainly a filler game. And I can't say I recommend "Strange Machine Games" who make it or another game (a tower defense type game) set in the Robotech world. I ordered Ace Pilot of their web site mid August. Middle of September rolls around and I have heard nothing so I email them. I get reply (apparently from their head sales-weasel) saying "We have shipped all early copies of Ace Pilot that we had on hand from Gen Con. More copies are on the way. As soon as I receive them, I will be shipping the remaining pre-orders. Remember, Ace Pilot is still not official released yet (which they utterly failed to put on the web site - particularly on the orders page), but you will receive your copy before it is available at stores." Needless to say I was more than a little pissed when I came across their booth at PAX Unplugged last weekend selling copies without having shipped me my copy. I have to come back to their a couple of times to track down the sales-weasel in charge. I show him the copy of the email he himself sent me and ask what's up with not having shipped me my copy that I paid for months ago? He of course has a spread-sheet he can pull up in 2 seconds on his phone of people SMG apparently still owe copies to, and he says to me "Oh yeah, you're the last one." <Yeah right - bullshit.jpg> Consummate sales-weasel bullshit through and through. As much as I liked Robotech, the guy in charge of SMG's sales comes off like a shifty douche-bag.

Meant "Buy a physical copy" instead of play it there, sorry. At least you'll know you'll enjoy it then and won't be going "aw fuck I spent a lot of money on this shit". Also make sure you like painting.

>I'm not explaining it very well.
well it's not like you're writing the rules for a boardgame

sound like one deck dungeon. what exactly are the players doing with their stamina, dex, etc.?
>>
>>63430483
Stamina dice have faces like reroll a die, boost other die, boost during move phase.

So if you roll shit you can use stamina, or if you;re feeling luckily, had a good roll, you can use stamina die to boost to get an even better result.

Late game abilities, as well as certain weapon and armour abilities will consume stamina.

You have to recover stamina dice etc.


for example, to use a basic attack, after you roll, you must have a basic attack, dexterity and move roll.

For an ability like 'precision strike' you have have two good dexterity results, one attack and one move.

attack/dex/move/defence die will have sides like this: (work in progress)

fail
nothing
success
success
success
great success

Once you roll, and apply rerolls you can spend dice for attacks. You can also save dice, and lock down for the next round - however this means that you won't get to roll them next turn.

It's still a work in progress.

You move your character around a randomly generated dungeon.

If you encounter an enemy, a fight begins.

You throw all of your die if it's your turn.

Each character will have different abilities e.g.:

Basic Attack
Strong Attack
Defend
Class specific Attack etc.

Each of these requires a set of unique results to actually use.
When you pick an ability, you essentially spend the dice for that round.
As well as picking an offensive action, you can also spend on a defence action-
because you don't what what the enemy will roll - they have their own dice and abilities.

How is this for dungeon generations instructions for players:
1. Draw random tiles and place them in the nearest available space in a clockwise direction.

2. Every 10th tile, place a door tile next to it. If not possible, place it next to next available tile in a clockwise direction.


Seems simple, you can generate a 50 tile dungeon in about a minute.

The only Dudes on a Map/Area Control game in my group is Blood Rage, and I'm a little tired of it. I like the genre but I want something with a little more long term strategy/troop movement, building up forces etc.

I've been looking at the other recommended options - Kemet, Cyclades, and Inis, mostly. What are the pros/cons of each?

Inis
+has card drafting, if you're into that
+has the most interesting victory conditions
-Deck of really strong action cards determines winner via asspull way too often

Cyclades
+Auctions
-Auctions
-Most dependent on expansions of the three

Kemet
+Most interesting unique player powers
+Most aggressive of the three by a mile
-Accumulating victory points is the least interesting victory condition of the three
+Easily the best of the three anyways

>I want something with a little more long term strategy/troop movement, building up forces etc.

Oh, well poop.

Kemet throws you into duking it out right from the get go, it's not so much a build up to climactic battles as it is repeated dick shots that get customized and more cruel as the game goes on.

Chaos in the Old world has a satisfying progression, but the tension really depends on one player (the only faction that excels at violence) staying in the race.
>>
>>63436233
Yeah, kemet might not scratch the itch he's after if he wants something a little more slow and deliberate.

>>
>>63436385
>Area control
>Quartermaster General?
Haha. But I've heard lots of things about it. What makes it so good?

>>63435746
Dune beats the shit out of all of these and has high commitment movements, but you need six players and three hours every time and a time machine.
>>
>>63435692
You start shit posting on 4chan about how much you hate Inis.
>>
>>63435746
Cyclades is fun but has roll to resolve combat and the arc of the game is a bit flat. I've heard the expansion improves the latter.
Haven't played Kemet.
Inis is a rare 10/10 game. Tense and exciting while being fairly deep in strategy, rewards repeated plays while being easy enough to pick up to be semi interesting the first time.
Only potential downside to me is that the playtime can vary depending on how well your players play. Especially if they're not good enough to secure victory conditions when others try to stop them, it can drag a bit. But usually players develop an awareness of that quickly.

What (euro)game that you've played has the most viable paths to victory? Particularly ways to specialize.
Orleans and Trajan seem to be near the top in my experience.

>>63435746

Let me expand on that a little bit

DUNE:
+Balances bullshit with bullshit, every faction power affects their play style immensely
+no alliance feels bad somehow as well
+Still somehow not broken because the win condition is HARD to pull off
+Immense player interaction,
+It's Dune
+-Asymmetric (I think it's a strong plus)
-Some don't like the Harkonnen traitors
-Bad moves cost you. A lot.
-Some would like more moves per turn
-suffers immensely from not playing with 6 players

I got together with a couple of friends today, a 3rd sadly wasn't able to make it.

The anons who said I got a rule wrong in A Feast for Odin were right. I replayed it correctly a few more times and with practice hit 129 today. So thanks, I got some mileage out of being wrong.
It feels like I got really lucky, though. A few very favorable occupations and some good early die rolls really set me up well. I may or may not have cracked 100 without that but it's good to know there's enough of a skill ceiling that I'd have to work for it either way.
It seems that for the high cost and physical sprawl, plus setup, play, and teaching time, it's a lot to ask for card draws and die rolls that still can feel like that. Of course that's the first time I felt good or bad luck in my number of solo plays, but I prefer that sort of luck not happen at all in a medium+ eurogame like this.
Really a brilliant piece of design in just about every other way, though. The polyomino mechanic is sorely underutilized in other games.

Hive comes to mind. Particularly the 'Pocket' edition. Other suggestions include: Coup, Fairy Tale, Hanabi, Eminent Domain, any of the Lost Legacy deck games, Once Upon a Time, Splendor (can be put into a *MUCH* smaller box), and The Grizzled.

Pros:
The art. Definitely consider contacting that artist if you get serious about publishing.
I like the color palette for the dice.

Cons:
Small thing, but maybe differentiate the Attack and Defend labels just a little. Just a small change in shape/color so that the difference is apparent at a glance.
I would change either the fist or the hand symbol to something less similar (never underestimate how stupid people can be when it comes to iconography).
I have no idea from looking at this board what the black crowns do. Maybe try and find a way to fit a description for the special ability on there.

As for the gameplay, it doesn't look like much from what I can tell. This guy rolls three fist dice for one fist slot? Just seems like you'd roll three and pick the best, which involves zero choice, but I'm probably missing something about the gameplay.
>>
>>63441735
Thank you for the feedback, means a lot.

I've been speaking to the artist, he's interested in the project. I compiling a list basic designs I will need to the prototype.

Thanks about the colour palette, it's the first colours I picked, so wil need to improve for the final design.

I could replace the hand for the yellow dexterity dice, not sure what else can mean 'dexterity'. A cat silhouette?

Oh and the attack/defence is just pl;ace holder, I'm writing up the system right now.
Dice have success/critical/nothing and failure faces.
The enemy also rolls at the same time.
So dice cancel out, results can also be saved for next round etc.

Dice combat, and really swingy, a fuckup on either side can either get the agent caught immediately or make the hunters spend several turns pulling their hair out with no clue where he's gone.

You have some nice thematic touches, and I even think it looks pretty professional (in a commercial sense). This I can also consider to be a slight negative. Your UI - that is, the dice 'icons' look a bit like placeholders, like they're designed rather than drawn. Not a fan of that. Nice palette. I'd also suggest creating characters rather than professions ('Exiled Warrior). Even if you named the bitch Roxalane d'Aubrey it would still be better. No need for the backstory.

Have you considered activating card properties with dice? I want to make a Mage Knight clone once I obtain a clearer perspective.

The shuffling and setup should take like 30 seconds max.

SO doesn't have as many interesting things going on as FoD, but it also has less procedural starts and less crap like Dracula running out the clock at sea where you can't touch him, or doing tight loops around the British isles for three rounds before you can scan the whole mainland.
>>

Hi
The dice icons are indeed placeholder, I don't have the skill in creating nice, readable symbols that fit the theme, but that is the aim!

The bit about character name, I'm so doing that!

>activating card properties with dice
That's literally what my system is! That image just had a placeholder attack/defend.

Thanks
