who offered to tip 20 for the winner of a month's contest as long as there are at least 3 submissions per month.

Applause!!!

Remember, lads: November is "no-shave-November", a.k.a. Movember!
This is why this month's requirement is

Beard


Happy designing and kind regards,
Kai

p.s.: A sidenote:
In the behaviour rules (see link to basic rules thread above) I've written:
Quote:
Please create a second posting in that thread to present your creation.
If you could please do me a favour and present your game along with a short description in your posting. That would make some geeklist entries easier for me because from time to time copy-n-pasting produces unexpected results (such as copying only odd symbols into the clipboard ..)
Thanks a lot

Beard? Yikes! I think this will be the month I don't make the requirement the main theme. Then again, as I type this I'm having an interesting idea that would do just that. Can't wait to see what others come up with.

I've got this.

Believe it or not, I've actually got the perfect idea for this.

I love it when my knowledge of obscure fairy tales comes in handy!

Is a moustache considered a beard? How about a goatee?
I saw a famous moustache game somewhere recently but not sure where?
I grow a moustache every November and and I cant wait till December 1st.
It is just way too itchy and I look like a sketchy character.

The requirement is "beard" - everything else is up to your interpretation



Kind regards,
Kai

Ideas I won't be using:

A game about:

1) Bluebeard's Castle. There is definitely a game tucked away in this scary fairy tale.

2) Beard the lion in his den. Surely someone can use this bearded idiom in a game!

3) The extraordinary muttonchops of the Victorian era. You know you want to!

Wanted in the West
2-4 Players
approx. 30 Minutes

In the Wild West town of Silverstone, the notorious bandit, Revolver Ricky, has just robbed the local bank for the 5th time. The sheriff has been unable to make an arrest because no one has ever seen Ricky’s face… until now.

In this clue-like game of deduction, players try to be the first player to identify Revolver Ricky by correctly guessing his Facial Hair, Eyebrows, & Hair.

I will be starting in a few hours.
Not a popular topic.
I don't have an ideas yet.
Who knows what will happen?

And... I just didn't have time this month. soblue

I was hoping to make a game based on the faerie tale Snow White and Rose Red, because the dwarf in the tale had a beard that gave him his power. Each time Snow White and Rose Red ran into the dwarf, he was trapped and they freed him by cutting his beard, but that diminished his power.

I was planning on doing something like that in the game. And since I didn't have time to make it this month, I probably will make this game next year for the two-player Print-and-Play contest as a co-op game.

Beard Men

Players: 2-4
Time: 10 min
Age: 8+

Summary: This is a very simple guessing and deduction game.
Set up: Deal 3 cards to each Player. Place the remainder of the cards off to the side. The player with the most facial hair goes first.

Rules: The starting player will ask a player of their choice if they have 2 beard styles in their hand. The question must contain the word “OR”. Ex. “Do you have the Fu Manchu or the Goatee?” The player wil answer with a yes or no, that is it. The player may not ask the same person twice in arow, unless it is a two player game. On your turn, instead of asking a question, you may take a guess at the 3 beard styles of one player. If you are right, you win the game. If you are wrong, you are out. Play continues till someone wins.
