Cards and Set Up


How To Play (Official)


UNEXPLAINED: UD4K Blade alignment detail; To align it perfectly trap 3 rows of yellow gems under each blade. 3 yellow gems will always be visable.

Blade reset. I didn't show the blade getting 3 gems and the status dropping down a row. Fail a 3rd time and you are dead "Roaming Frozen in the Hemoglobin"

Little bit more informative.


IDEA: what if each time to win you upgrade a card, and each time your blade resets you lose an upgrade?

Re: [WIP] UBORED; The Parasitic Hero - 18 Card Microgame Contest
I am working hard on these. I hope the effort shows.


Note to Self: Resolved the randomizer and fun factor.
Cards start with easy requirements. then flip any card you want when you win an single event.
Upgraded cards are harder.

Finally append a ++stone requirement card (stone asset on the rules card) to the a card that is down. Figure out WHEN this triggers and why to which card.

Game is done and needs finishing polish and testing. The game now ramps up.

I LOST my failure.. maybe you got to append on a blade fail. on top of the 3 fails and you lose.

Re: [WIP] UBORED; The Parasitic Hero - 18 Card Microgame Contest


I started the rules.

What rules do I need?

QR code to youtube video.
Quality of win will be: UD4K Health level then blade status PGA score(Pearl, Garnet, Amethyst). e.g.
Win!: UD4K = "No-so-Good"; P=2 G=1 A=0

I got to change the UD4K rules to say: you can only touch each blade once to power an action.

The way I go about my hobby game design is unique, and with vision. So to that point, Here is the audio Voice Acting audition for Sarah Pyte. Please let me know if one stands out.

This all looks great, but if you want some feedback you'll need to post some cards and rules. We don't need the final art, just something to playtest.

Looking forward to it...

The fact that I didn't release a version of it has improved it somewhat. Each time you pass a spot your pick a card to "upgrade" (downgrade because it's tougher) Had I released the game a while back it would of been less of a game. It now Cranks up.

I plan to have a blade reset also include attaching pick up requirements to a card played. This may force the use of Pick up cards or end your game.

It creates a "game", and moves the design forward.
All because I let it bake.

I will work my butt off to get this done by Fri 2nd.

I had this in my back pocket....

I am almost done with the art.

Outfit color is my wife's idea... Black Legings

Re: [WIP] UBORED; The Parasitic Hero - 18 Card Microgame Contest
Problem
My action requirements are not one of each. There is up to 3 of one type.
Many Lines of thought.
The 3 blades were supposed to be in the same order.
If one type was not there I kept the sequence. The requirement showed 2 of one type. on 2 blades. Since I have a rule of only being able to touch a blade once I am not going to show 2 blades of the same type.


NEW
I am going to pile all the requirements of one type (MAX 3) on one blade. I am going to disobey my singular order to opt for the top blade having the most requirement. I feel I'm free to do so because Blade ordering is part of the game.

Also, Note the image I need and will echo the feel of 3 blades. even if one is empty. Any opinion on the empty blade?

2 of these files are big because of the rules text.
If someone can make a multi page PDF I would appreciate it.

all 18 cards

I've used PDF Combine a bunch, it's nice and browser based.

This whole project has me very excited. I love how gross and adorable the art is, and the way you made that drill work is so elegant!

Also, Steven Universe much?

You're the first to mention the nod. I am amped about the theme too. I think it's a bit of that steven U flavor.

How are the cards arranged in the files? It doesn't look like it's page 1: card fronts, page 2 card backs (there seems to be both front and back of the blade cards on the same page???)...so I have no idea how to print it.

It certainly looks interesting

Good Question, It's so straightforward for me That I didn't think about that.

Each card title will be together (6).
Each monster body part is together ([3], same body art feet/scales)

Each Blade needs the blade of the same color (3). Each blade starts with the gem up. as you pass unused yellow gems you will flip a blade to track them.

The 2 drills with yellow gems are together (text on the card: Easy/Hard)

The rules are back to back.shake
Other stuff are single sided.... Sarah Pyte (you are here-->, Wormy Head/butt (cut this in 2), UD4K Status is one sided, and tucked under the sarah pyte meeple card.
