Bezier Games Releases Silver on Mobile
As always happens when I'm gone for a long time and have to do a mega-post (as I did earlier today), I miss something. This time I missed something that was actually #2 on my list of news to share this week. How did I miss it? I don't know. My brain works [or doesn't work -ed.] in mysterious ways.
Anyway, consider this an addendum to my main post today. Thanks!
I should get to it, so here goes. Bézier Games has created an app for their new card game Silver and it's available right now for iOS and Android. Even better, it's completely free.
Silver is a card game, but the first of what will be a string of games.Bezier wrote:In Silver, your village is overrun by savage werewolves and it is up to you to deter as many as fast as you can! In this 2-4 player traditional card game, each player starts with five face down cards, which make up their village. Each card shows a resident, their unique ability, and a number - which is how many werewolves that resident attracts.The second game in the series will be out around Essen and is called Silver Bullet. No word on whether that will be coming in app form or not, so let's focus on the first game, Silver.
The game begins with everyone peeking at two of their five cards. On each turn the player chooses a card, and then decides to either replace high valued residents or to take advantage of the new resident’s special abilities. Silver contains fourteen different abilities, allowing you to view face down cards, trade cards with neighboring villages, protect your best cards, and more. Once you believe your village has fewer werewolves sniffing about than the neighboring villages, call for a vote! Your neighbors each have one more chance to save themselves before all is revealed. If you are correct, you receive a score of zero for the round, but if you are wrong, you get the sum of the cards in your village plus an additional ten points! All other players receive points totaling the sum of their cards. The winner of each round is awarded the glorious silver amulet (an actual metal token that comes with the game), granting them an additional source of protection in the next round. After four intense rounds, the player with the lowest score wins!
Silver is currently available and has only a 2-player mode (the physical game is 2-4 players) vs. an AI. So, it's a great way to learn the game or be a fun timewaster. Hey, it's free!
The app shipped with several bugs, but it's been updated quite a bit since its release in early August and it seems to be rather polished at this point. Head over to the App Store of your choice and pick it up before the price is no longer free. Yep, that's going to happen at some point, so don't dawdle.
