Hi everyone - I'm a new user of board game geek.

About 5 months ago I was searching the web for a print-on-demand service that I could use to make card games with, I found - The Game Crafter.com - since then I have been playing around with various ideas, I have finally decided upon a game-plan and have been working on that for a few weeks now.

The game is set in an alternative present, its fighting based game, the main mechanic is strategy.

Story: The world has shrunk and so have the people, some of these shrunken people, animals ect.ect. are fighting mainly for space, others for glory or victory of one kind or another.

I'll tell you how it started.. I began drawing little characters on paper (I'm no artist BUT these characters just kept coming and it wasn't unwelcome as I needed something to work with if I was to accomplish the task of making a Card Game)..I could use free art but I really want to use my own; anyway.. I took some snaps of those characters uploaded them to my computer and began to colour the image's in using Gimp (this idea of doodling, snapping and uploading images I got from a fellow Game Crafter Community Member who's name I regretfully forget now).

Here's a few photos of our characters, mock-up game cards and game as it looks in-play.







For more information on the game you can check out the BLOBS blog: http://blobs-thecardgame.blogspot.co.uk/
And you can see some of the (rough) character art there aswell.

PS: I'm not sure If I'm posting this in the correct forum as the game I am designing at the moment doesn't use a board although It may use a mat (as a card placement indicator).

This is an appropriate forum, I think, as the definition of "board game" is pretty broad around here.

However, you may be expected to say "BLOB Blog" ten times fast.

At least he's not also the CEO of Canadian grocery store chain Loblaw's (whose name is, no kidding, Robert).

Bob Loblaw's Blob Blog

Now say THAT ten times fast. Or even once.
