GLASS ANGEL




COMPONENTS READY

1-4 player card laying game by Charles Ward




COMPONENTS
1 rulebook, 2 starting cards, 4 sets of score cards, and 24 cards.

GOAL
Earn points by forming a stain glass window placing glass next to matching colours.

PREPARATION
Cut the glass cards so there are two different colour glass parts to each card. Cut the score cards in half and along the dotted lines.

SETUP
Place the starting cards together on the table. For a short game, separate all the cards into 2 sets of 12 cards, and use only 1 set. Shuffle and deal out the cards. Cards are kept in hand and hidden from other players. The owner of the game starts.

ON YOUR TURN
You must PLAY 1 of your cards or PASS, and SCORE.

PLAY
Place 1 of your cards face up on the table. The card may be played next to an existing card OR played 1 card away from an existing card ( see EXAMPLE. Also, placing a card diagonally adjacent is the same as placing "1 card away" ). Keep the orientation of the cards the same ( e.g. the long glass part edges must be next to other long edges.

PASS ( OPTIONAL RULE )
You may pass up to 3 times. If you pass, place 1 of your cards face down in front of you. You may keep the cards separate or stacked. These cards remain face down until all your cards have been played. Then, choose and play 1 face down card at a time, until all cards have been played.

SCORE
After each turn, Score 1 point for every matching glass next to each glass on the card played AND score 1 point for each glass on the card played that is next to at least 1 matching glass.

A glass played not next to a matching glass scores 0 points.

A glass played next to 1 matching glass scores 1 + 1 point.

A glass played next to 2 matching glass parts scores 2 + 1 point.

And so on.

Since each card has 4 sides, it is possible to score 4 for the 4 glass parts next to the card played if they match, and 2 for the glass parts on the card played.

EXTRA POINT ( OPTIONAL RULE )
Score an extra point for completing a diamond of the same colour on your turn.

SOLO
For a solo game, draw and play 1 card at a time from a face down draw deck. Score 1 point for every complete diamond shape made of 4 glass parts of the same colour.

EXAMPLE
The game has just begun.
1 Ann plays a red next to a red, scores 2.
2 Bob plays a red next to a red, scores 2.
3 Ann plays a card 1 card away, scores 0.
4 Bob plays a red and green next to matching parts, and scores 4.
5 Ann will play a matching card, and score 4.

Re: [WIP] GLASS ANGEL
I hate to bump my own thread like this but I really recommend this game, specially if you like Autumn (there is no covering of cards - yet). I recommend this game because my wife wanted to play it - again. Yes, the game is abstract, but has more depth than you might think. Yet simple enough to play with your mom. I designed it based on stain glass windows because that is what she likes.

GLASS ANGEL was a 24 hour contest entry. The game has been in my head for a while ever since I found some geometric wooden puzzles I bought for my 2 year old son. You comments are much apreciated. My only worry is that this game already exists. So simple it must exist, right? Thanks again.

Re: [WIP] GLASS ANGEL - CONTEST READY
I guess I could improve the score cards. But better than not having any I think.

Played a few more 3p games. Our guest prefered this game to Autumn (which is one of my favourite games), so I was very excited to hear that.

Re: [WIP] Glass Angel - CONTEST READY
Looks like a very nice, elegant game, well done.

I'm in the middle of a couple contest designs, so not sure when I'll have time to try this, but I will.
