Happy new year, everybody!

Did everyone make it well into the new year?

And what are your plans for the time to come?

I'm pretty sure, most of you will have to tell a lot about
"What Print 'n Play Games are you crafting or planning on crafting this month?"

had the following conversation with the game's designer:

Quote:
Hi Ryan,


Congratulations on your successful kickstarter campaign.


Personally, I love this game, I love the bidding mechanic, the dual
purpose of the cards, the artwork... in a word, the whole package is
elegant.

Constructive criticism: could have done with a few more resource cards -
just my opinion.

Thank you for making the PnP version available: here in Australia the
high retail cost & international shipping fees make boardgaming a
potentially expensive hobby. I found that out during my Heroscape
obsession!!!

There's a few dedicated print and players who are disappointed they
missed out on the PnP eight minute empire offer you made through
Kickstarter.


btwhttp://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/150365/item/


Page 3 no. 68, you can see their comments.


Rather than just send them the files (none have asked me to send them, by
the way, nor would I send them if they did), I was wondering if you'd
accept something like $5 each via PayPal, then send them the files, or I
could forward on your behalf if that's too hard.

They haven't asked me to do this, so no guarantee they'd actually go for
this offer: I just feel bad having something no one else has, and they
have no way of getting it... kinda the opposite of what I'm supposed to
feel in this capitalist society I suppose.

Thanks again,
CRC


P.S. I've played this with approx ten people, and around ten more
watched... everyone loved it. Some did make un of the fact these learning
games went for more than eight minutes... lol. You must get that a lot.
I've told them all: retail version will be available in 2013!!!


his response:

Quote:
Hi Tom,

Thank you! I'm happy to hear that you are enjoying the game. I really
appreciate your comments.

Thanks for letting me know about the people that might be interested in
the PnP version. I think that what you suggest sounds good, and is fair
to the other Kickstarter backers. If anyone wants the PnP files, they can
send $5 to my Paypal account using my email: ryanlaukat@gmail.com. Just
list in the description what it is for and an email address, and I will
send a link to download the files.

It's true, the learning game usually does take longer than eight minutes.
Someone will say, "Hey, this is longer than eight minutes!" I always shrug
and say, "Well, we play it in eight minutes at my house."

Take Care,
Ryan


Long story short: go for it! It is still available as a PNP!

I'm not making this game. I'm also not making a re-theme somebody made set in a dark future space setting. It has nothing to do with a miniatures game property. I don't even know what I'm talking about. whistle

FINISHED!

Here it is, Space Hulk in My Pocket!


All the cards, tiles, tokens, and stand-ups were printed on linen cover stock and glued back-to-back. This is a super-easy build, though some of my front/back alignments are slightly off for some reason. It still looks and plays great, though!

Everything fits (barely) in a small plastic box:

Battle of the Bulge the kickstarter PnP files for the board game version of the game where released.

Got the files on the 31st (at least where I was) printed out before the champagne piping, and building today (pictures soon)

This is a light wargame, area movement, buckets of dice combat.

The files are nice. The zip contains 7 files (6 pdfs, 1 readme txt)
1 20x30 inch map pdf (I'll need to slice to print on multiple pages)
1 page of Charts and Tables
12 pages of rules - only 8 pages actual rules, its not a complex game
2 pages of counters (about 120) single sided
1 page markers (optional) - suggestion is laminate counters and mark step reduction directly on them instead of printing these

Not a difficult build

This shouldn't be as complicated as I'm making it, but maybe if I put it up here I'll be motivated to finish. I've made the dice by gluing paper to wooden cubes.


I have cards ready to print at printerstudio, but I haven't figured out what all I need to do with the rest of the deck. I plan to do 3.5"x5.75" cards, and I'm not really sure I want to just blow up cards from other games to fill the space.



While I was at it I ordered a cosmetics bag with the logo on it from Artscow for a buck. I figure that'd be easier than making a box, though I haven't seen the final product yet.

I've been wondering for a while now whether I should make some kind of PnP pdf for Deserted Animals. I've crafted the first 3-5 prototypes myself so I know that for this game it might not be as easy as for some other games.

Deserted Animals has around 350 parts.. and there are many unique components - meaning that you would have to work pretty hard to make this set for yourself. It would be much more easier to just order the game. But I know that there might be some that actually enjoy the game making process.

Please leave a comment or anything, if a PnP pdf for this game is something you might be interested in. I would probably put it out for free, but I cannot promise a swift deadline for this project as I am pretty occupied with more important stuff atm.

If there will be seriously interested parties, we could open up a forum in the game entry to discuss some aspects of the process.

I have 2 main ambitions this month. The 1 is Roborally. I know it's not Pnp but I gave away my retail copy to my daughter this Christmas & this is one of the few games Pierre likes. Instead of cards I plan to use tiles from SiskNY's
Tiles to replace programming cards file. Pierre will make the wooden til holders. I might make the boards a touch smaller not too sure on that. And of course I'll make fimo robots. This will be an off & on project for January as my primary project is my next entry.

I got a scanner a few weeks before Christmas at the thriftstore and it works, yay. I decided to do a retheme of TCTK. I've drawn & scanned in the first 4 characters, The King, Queen, Astronomer, & the Fool. Then I want to digitally paint them. I've already 'painted' the King & will move onto either the Astronomer or the Fool next. It took me 3 days to do the King so I see this as an all month or more project. I have WIP thread going.

I made this game for my sister for Christmas since she like the one I made for myself so much. My biggest gripe about the game however, (other than how the heck do you store this monster!) was were do you store the dice? So I made a little modification and added a dice tray. (I also built one to add onto my version)

The tray is large enough to hold 8 sets of dice. It is held in place by magnets that are embedded into the tray and the back of the tray holder. If I ever make another one, I would use to magnets per tray due to the weight of the dice. It hold well enough with one, but if you turn it completely vertical on its side the tray will fall out. Overall I am pleased with the improvement.

Woo! I get to post on the "what are you making" list again! I made five games for my target for the PNPSS, and coudn't brag about any of them to keep the secrecy!

Anyhow, I've taken advantage of the fact that one can still get the PnP version of this game for $5 by emailing Ryan at ryanlaukat@gmail.com with a paypal payment.

Can't wait to finish it and put up some pictures!

It's not in the database yet (still pending approval) but I'm making a copy of Fish Cook (Yum-Yum Super Fish Delicious) from Cheapass Games. This will be coming out in print this year, but the beta is available for free at: http://www.cheapass.com/freegames/fishcook

It's an easy build (mostly cards) that requires a bunch of dice and tokens. I've playtested it once but I want to give it another try with better components.

Edit: Finished!

And here are the PnP components:



Cards and boards are printed on linen cover stock. Boards are mounted on black foam core. The tokens are derived from the market board artwork and mounted on chipboard. But wait, this set is now the Unofficial Iron Chef Edition Fish Cook!

I didn't know what to do for card backs as the PDF doesn't come with any. So, I just used full-sheet images for each page of cards to make simple puzzles reminiscent of the trading cards of yesteryear:



There's the very nimble Chairman and knowledgeable host Alton Brown from Iron Chef America, Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto, Chairman Kaga and the Iron Chefs from Iron Chef Japan, and game designer/Lord of the Ill-Mannered Guinea Pigs James Earnest. Instead of ringing a bell to signal the cooking phase, we will simply and authoritatively utter "Allez Cuisine!"

in advance of the upcoming possible Express/In a Tin contest (which since i am doing this ahead of time i'll understand if it makes me ineligible) i got an idea from Nate Kurth to make an express version of 7 Wonders

my version - Space Marvels 6 Express - uses 72 smaller tiles and a science fiction theme (with nods to some of my favorite writers). currently it is in a beta form over on my main forum thread while i adjust some of the icons and layouts. playable with 2-4 (2 people use one dummy hand) in about 15-20 mins

the build took about 5 mins last night. here is a set of first photos.

d12s track your credits, d20s track your VP (i chose to use these for the dice aspect of express games, and because these two are the most planet shaped dice)



new version of all the components

After managing to obtain the PnP files from Ryan, after Kickstarter had closed. I thought I should show some support and create this little gem.
Print outs are complete, I am just waiting on some tokens from ebay and then construction will begin!

I already have a few non-PnP friends interested in playing, so if they like it enough, they will probably purchase a published copy.

After having to withdraw from a woodcut printing course in the fall (which was not conducive to making games anyhow) my wife signed us up for a quick 3 session "Printing without a Press" class. I think I will start simple and try the only 4 different tiles for Alien City. I have not played the game yet but it seems like it will be right up my alley. If it turns out I can get it played a bunch and want to try the variant, I would be fine to just hand number the tiles.

With what I term as my second Christmas happening tomorrow (where some of my friends finally have time to get together and go through the festivities), I've managed to make some games this year.

First up was this, using the rather splendid Tears of Envy redesign. I also put together a little box. made using a texured brown card that looks a little like cork.

Rather stupidly, in my haste, I wrapped it the moment I finished crafting it; but if I get a chance tomorrow I'll take a few snaps then.

And, er, not this, but, you know, the other one. With hulking great space men in it.

Again, a custom box, this one in a grey card. Again, if I get a chance tomorrow, I will take a couple of snaps.

I went a bit nuts with this one, thinking that I'll just give everyone a different copy of this. But on further reflection, decided to do the previously listed games instead to better suit the receiving parties. However, it does now mean I have the first four sets, all diced up, one of which even has the tuck box made up.

Think I might still wrap it and give it to someone. Figure if I get one person playing it, maybe the others might get interested; then I can break out the other three sets...

This one kinda just rolled off the printer out of a necessity to not waste empty space on full-page label paper while printing up some other stuff. There is really nothing to it; thirteen dice, player sheets, and rules. It would have been rude not to print it.

(The excuses we come up with to craft more games...)
