Dice Beads, and an idea for a game...

So, the story is that I manage to get two games with wood cubes, on small side, and decided to put them in the same container, in my car. Well, I ended up having one of the cubes flipped out and got lost under the seat. I then needed to get replacement part. I couldn't find cubes. So, I decided to look for square beads that would fit. In my search for the replacement beads, I found square beads in the forum of dice:

I am now also having the idea for a game where dice are used as good for trading.

I think these beads are really cool actually, I am seeing a number of uses for them.

One player Werewolf! I have an idea on how to do it.

I was given a tormenting challenge by someone (I would name them, if they want to be known) to do a one player version of the game Werewolf. It was thrown out there and my mind latched onto it. Well, I think i know how to do it. And now, I will press on with it. Will see how it goes.

I am working on a trick-taking game with positional play on a board.

Imagine trying to combine trick-taking normally seen with cards, with positional play as in a pure abstract strategy game. High Hand is one game that inspired this some, but not with trick-taking. I am working on this, and need to balance some things.

I started a thread on it in the abstract games section, if you want to comment there on it. The thread is here:

https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1568591/i-am-working-trick-...

I had been wanting to combine the two concepts for awhile now. I figured I would try something out and post about it once I got some playtesting in, which I did. I still have more to work on.

The entry for the game I had in mind is here on BGG:

I am kicking around a scenario for 504 inspired by the game Dark Tower.

Dark Tower is a classic electronics game, where you went questing to get items and build an army so you can defeat the center tower and win the game. Inspired by that, I am kicking around ideas for a Dark Tower inspired scenario for 504. I welcome input on this. Please comment in the thread below on ideas:

https://boardgamegeek.com/article/21432726

The game has priv cards that can work as artifacts, and units that can represent different parts of the game. I think there is enough there. It is just a matter of getting the right bits together.

I uploaded two different player aids for 504, which are in Word format.

I have one Word doc which maps the phases of the game (down to different steps) to the Module (and where it is slotted). I also did that for the priv. cards. I hope this helps. Look under the files in 504 entry for these.

I did it in Word format, so if anyone wants to make additions and change it, and upload it, they can. I did it in OpenOffice and saved it in Word format.

Buy 25 or just 5 0 4? (Song parody of 25 or 6 to 4 by Chicago)

I did pick up 504. With the game, 25 or 6 to 4 is floating around in my head. I take this as a time for a parody. So, in my pondering the battle between sanity and wanting the new, and my thinking that 504 could end up being the only game I end up playing, I give you this parody:

"Buy 25 or just 5 0 4"
On the Geek every day
Searching for something new to play
Popping ads on the side
Evermore, in front of my eyes

Starring eagerly, wanting more...
Buy 25 or just 5 0 4?

Staring madly at the page
Seeing the Hotness in my face
Thinking they all be great
But there's one I can forever play
Should I try to buy many more?
Buy 25 or just 5 0 4?

Oh yeah
Wondering how much I really need
Space's shrinking from collection creep

Searching for something new to play
On the Geek every day
Buy 25 or just 5 0 4?
Buy 25 or just 5 0 4?
Alright

And here is the original:

I am now in Albany, NY (with a new laptop)

I am now able to get onto the Net more often, and do real messaging. My Android device died on me, so I went and got a laptop.

I landed a job with NY state and relocated to Albany. I would be up for knowing where the games are played up here. I am likely to really network next year. I am still getting settled in.

I updated the rules for reneging and leading Hearts, at Trollin'

The details are here:

https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1455631/added-rules-regardi...

This should make it a bit easier for a player to be able to be able to pull off Trollin'.

I am busy with the relocation, so my posting is limited on here.
