Re: My Current Projects
i received a DM request to add in some tracking cards for credits and VP instead of using dice.

et voilà



ok on the server as well (files now split into smaller chunks)

you'll need 2 eurocubes per player. suggested colors yellow and pink

Re: My Current Projects
another two handed play test tonight

niven ring: 40
generation ship: 43

was able to complete all three stages of the marvel for each. in this game credits were in very short supply so i often had to discard a tile for three credits instead of playing it

i noticed i have to adjust the vp values during the conflict phase. right now there is a potential runaway leader problem there

and i have to adjust the icon on the fabber tile

and for the two player rules i have to make an adjustment to the rules to handle those trade tiles allowing resource purchase to the dummy player

the niven ring hand was able to build both the terran federation and encyclopedia galactica but was unable to take over the strong culture tile building of the generation ship and its final coup de grace - the instrumentality of mankind tile built on the last turn

scores are close to previous games so the 35-45 range for an adequate score is a good assumption



later: fabber tile has been changed to provide one credit in rounds two and three each time the player builds a trade tile

two player amendment to directional one credit resource purchase tiles will be to ignore tile direction i.e. you buy resources from the other player

files going up on my server now. apologies for the back and forth tweaks while in beta here. finding ways to make the game stronger

Re: My Current Projects
another two handed play

military vs science

deep field telescope against the gardens of avernus (basically the plot of The Quiet War trilogy by Paul McAuley)


later:

science wins the day even if it could not build any purple organization tiles. the combination of scoring science tiles netted 55 points

the military, while very strong in their defenses for an end game bonus of 11vp for red military icons only managed to net 48 points in the end

both built all three marvel stages

Re: My Current Projects
I watched a video about 7 wonders but the game don't sounds so cool as your express version did to me.

I'm going to craft this today, should I wait for a new version or could I go ahead?

Re: My Current Projects
i was thinking about a leaders expansion of some sort. i feel it might destabilize the game since it is so short.

maybe some sort of generic roles - Scientist, Engineer, Diplomat etc.. which provide a one time bonus in one of the rounds. drafted like in 7 wonders. say 12 roles, each player gets 3-6 of them and chooses 2

Re: My Current Projects
Caught a typo in the rules, Marvels section:
"arraigned" should be "arranged"

And a rules question:
When there are two tiles left in a hand, do you keep one and discard the other, like in 7 Wonders? Or do you pass the last tile as normal and that player keeps it?

Re: My Current Projects
thanks for catching that nick.

you pass the last tile as normal yes. i think that actually sets up a decision point about do i give you tile (since i may see it benefits you) or do i keep it and give you the other one

Re: My Current Projects
I haven't played the game yet, but I am in the process of building it for the third time. Maybe I'll manage to get a game in this time!

Re: My Current Projects
I knew going in that this is still the playtesting stage, so I don't mind. Plus, it is a very easy game to build.

Kind of reminds me of my early days with RPG's (1976~). There wasn't anything like a FLGS then where I lived so we used a modified deck of playing cards to simulate percentile dice.

It would be a shame to make them generic since you've included so much great SF flavor in the tiles. You could do The Mule, Hari Seldon, etc.
