Hi everybody!

Did you all survive the Geekdo/Google hack?
Speaking of it: Anyone out there willing to craft a pnp Monopoly?

Even if not, tell us: What are you going to craft this month?

Nick pointed this one out last month, and I have to confess, even though this little game uses 1 page "only", it is a very very nice dicechucker whith a very cool combat mechanic.
Move on, meet your enemies and kill them - or die trying!
A perfect little filler!

I have 2 planned projects:

1. Have to figure out how to do a Pandemic re-theme board for "Cleanse the stars" (more in DIY forum). Card problem solved, all 180 cards will be printed in April. I saw some tutorials for foldable boards, but never did one myself.

2. Create tokens for my Memoir 44 re-theme. If I have enough time, I will paint the WH40K epic miniatures and the tokens will not be needed.

Utopia engine.
2 copies, one to give away. Maybe I'll even get around to a spot of laminating this month!
Looks like it could be a great little 1p game.

Board Game: Dune Express
I've already started on this. I'm using a folding travel chess box/board for the gameboard.

The board is finished (and looks pretty good), but now I need my order to come in from spielmaterial.de before I can start working on the rest.

Have to squeeze it in when I'm not working on the game I'm building with my 6-year-old son.

I've decided to finish this up. There have been so many setbacks on this thing that there's almost something telling me not to make this.

I had the cards printed up at Artscow last fall when Scott released the files. I even had the playermats/mousepads printed, so you'd think not much to go.

Then my printer died before Christmas. I got a new one for my birthday in Febuary. Ok good to go. I was collecting some poker chips to stick the leaders on but just couldn't get over 5 colors of the same type. Fine I'll just dye some the right colors. So then I printed & laminated the leaders with wide cello tape in prep to punch. Got out my totally, horrible, stupid Fiskars punch which was the only one I had the right size. Two stickers in the darn thing broke, oooh how I hate Fiskars punches, give me EK Success anytime. So then I threw it all in a corner for awhile.

Now I've gone ahead & resized the leader stickers for a smaller punch & punched them out which will mean I have to make fimo discs to put them on, oh well. Everything else is done except the map & box, yay.

I've decided to make this one as well. Got some 1 inch wood stock to cut some cubes for the dice. Printed the player mats & rules, just need to mount the mats. Then just need to make/find some tokens & do a box. I can't resist to make little rat tokens in players colors but the other board & influence will probably be some risk cubes.

I've been seeing a lot of Cthulhu Yahtzee in the Thrift Stores these days, so I figured I'd snag a few and finally build up a copy of Poisson!

I've had a burning desire to built my own copy for some time now, and I think the black/green "squid" dice will add a certain je ne sais quoi!

So April will be filled with a shower of goodies for the DWSSG project!

My priorities for this month:

1. Releasing the next Classic expansion 'The Sixth Doctor' over at the Yahoo group tomorrow

2. Releasing 'The Pandorica Opens' here at BGG (this weekend perhaps) once the lovely Admin people do their stuff. Some of the most difficult design work I've done on the project was trying to fit the intricacies of Matt Smuith's season finale!.

3: Coming mid-April will be the first set of Goal cards that can be used as play-aids for the game. They add a lot of visuality and mean less writing and recording for players too - always a good thing.

4. I've continued the groundwork on June's 'Storylines' expansion that will be a double length one of 20 pages. A huge amount of new plot events to introduce to Adventures from the Core game plus some familiar Characters that haven't yet made it into the game - some friends, some not...

And what else...well I've been in discussion over a browser version of the game that looks very exciting.........and I've been doing more work on my computerised TARDIS for my own games using some free Text Adventure software called QUEST - all good fun...!

Busy, busy, busy...

My priority is to get this game finished and ready for the next www.dallasgamesmarathon.com. It looks like an awesome game and it's the one I'm most anxious to play even more than any published games. I've got the board, cards and player aids finished:
Board Game: Forged in Steel
Board Game: Forged in Steel

I just need to get all of the wood pieces together and painted. I wanted to personally thank Wade who provided me the files and was very friendly in the process. I think he's got a great game on his hands.

This past month has been busy once again. I've foregone the papercrafting (although I've got plenty lined up) for making cards. I said I was going to make some of the themed rummy contest games and I did. I actually got one played with great success. It was the winner: Untamed: A Rummy Revolution

Just finishing this up.

I got a great deal on string. Hobby Lobby had 1/2 off on ribbon in the fabric section. That included some very nice "decorative cord" (1mm by 15 feet) which is perfect for this. Spool was only $1 with discount!

Will post pictures soon.

My first entry was getting image heavy so I'll finish in this one. Other games I want to make are all of the ones in this thread. Of course, it's somewhat unrealistic to make all 40+ of them so I will merely attempt to make most of them. To be honest, some of them don't look like my cup of tea so those will be the easy ones to cut. The image to the left is the first one I've made, Aether Captains: Capek Golems. That image shows the exact copy I made as do all of the other images in both entries.

Other games I finished this last month include:

Agricola Express
Board Game: Agricola Express

Dune Express
Board Game: Dune Express

Decktet
Board Game: Decktet

Micropul

I plan to make a second copy of Dungeon in a Tin so I can play it with other people.

While most of the "design" took place a couple weeks ago, I've still writing up the rules, and building a tuck box for this:
Board Game: Naval War


It's a space-battle re-theme of AH's 1979 classic, Naval War!

It all started when my 5-year-old was watching me play some silly on-line space ship shoot-em-up game. It got me thinking about how to do a simple card-game on that theme, and for whatever reason Naval War sprang to mind.

So I dug out my old copy of N.W., changed the names of everything, did some minor alterations to how a few things worked, made up goofy sci-fi weapons, and altered the number of cards a bit so I could get 150 small cards on just 8 sheets of 8½×11 card-stock. My son drew up a bunch of space ships, and I did up the art for the action cards (as you can see in the picture).

We've played it a couple times, and we're trying to work out some good 2-player rules. He loves it!

One of my newest Aether Captains games, going to build a nice set of the cards for my personal collection.

This is a solitaire game of mystery, intrigue and adventure for one player who has about 20 minutes to possibly change the fate of Arkady.

I've been working on my first game design to see the light of day, heavily inspired by Fairy Tale. I like Fairy Tale and its simple draft-five-and-play-three mechanism, but I didn't like how three of the four suits were symmetrical and how some cards were dependent on a particular other card in the deck. So, I made my own game!

I've printed off cards a few times so far this month, tweaking some things after every few plays, and I recently had it added to the database! The cards and rules are on the way. If you like Fairy Tale, I'd love if you could take a look!

The game consists of 104 cards and the rules. I suspect it would work best with 3 (and I might change some rules for the 2 or 4 player game).
