Hello all!

I have been developing a board game on and off throughout the past half year or so.

The game is inspired by Munchkin and Desperate Gods and I am developing it to be played both physically and virtually (And even a hybrid of the two).

I haven't finished writing the official rules up yet, though I have play tested a great number of times to refine them.

Here are some photos!








A Bit About the Game

It is a fantasy RPG themed game. The current play mode is Last Man Standing, where you essentially try to kill all the other players until only you remain.

There are four classes:



Clock Workers
Shadow Striders
Blood Lusters
Arcanists

Each have their own play style.

There are a few different types of cards.


WILDS

These are monsters you encounter and battle!



B - Before battle do this
L - If you lose battle do this
W - If you win battle do this

ITEMS

Items are obtained as rewards for defeating monsters

Equipment cards are cards that add to your overall strength



Abilites are cards that allow you to take an action you generally wouldn't be able to do! They are used once before discarding.




I have made a 3D board additionally.



And programmed some basic functionality:




There is still some of the card artwork I need to finish doing as well as texturing the 3D board to look like the 2D board.

You can follow my progress on Facebook or follow me on Twitter if you are interested!

Looks great. Did you do the artwork and the programming yourself?

Thank you everyone

@todd sanders
I'm glad you like the card layouts. I tried to keep them simple but aesthetically pleasing!

@Newb Boarder
Thanks So far I've had good feedback from play testing sessions

@Thomas Stevenson
Thank you!
Yes everything was done by me except for 1 item. Some friends offered to help me finish the art for the items deck, and the twig wand is the first of these to have been done completely by someone other than me. There are a few my girlfriend did concepts for because she wanted to help out. And the Shadow Strider weapons were concepted by another friend who offered assistance.

I am most likely going to take the artists on board because it speeds up production

If you are curious, I programmed the game in C# inside Unity3D.

Thanks you very much

I've been having a heap of playtest sessions during the day, and during the night I've been adding colour to the in game board.

Is this going to be a complete digital game with AI and everything?
