Hello everybody,
This is my first WIP thread on BGG.

Right now i'm working on a fast paced small duel card game.
I titled it Immunity but it might take other names as the devellopement go on.

Concept:
Each player have a set of organs to protect ( heart, brain ,lungs and liver)
Each organ takes a combination of 4 microorganisms to be taken down.
The aim is to destroy the opponents organs while protecting your own body.
The player that loses all his organs, or have lost more organs withing the end of the game looses.

Content:


8 organ cards
30 Microorganism cards
10 special cards
2 rule cards

total: 50 cards

Rules:

1.Each player puts infront of him his 4 organ cards on the white side:

2.Each player draw 5 cards from the microorganism pile
There are 3 families of microorganisms in the game ( bacteria, parasites and viruses)
There are also 10 special cards ( immune system cells, and actions); Allowing to modulate or remove microrganisms from the organs.
3. Each turn, each player draws 1 card and plays 1 card.
4.When an organ is destroyed, turn the card to the red side, you can no longer move or remove organisms from this organ.

5. The game ends when a player have lost all his organs or the last card from the microorgaism pile have been drawn.


here is a quick mockup i did to set up the mood of the graphic part:


Some examples of organisms.



Special cards examples:
- Vaccine: Prevent virus infection for the next turn in all organs
- Macrophage : Remove 1 bacteria or 1 parasite from any organ
- Opsonisation : Remove 1 bacteria from an organ
- Sneeze: Transfer 1 microorganisms from your lungs to the oppenent lungs.
- B-cell: Prevent any further infection from the same organism on one organ.
(each microorganism come in 2 cards)
- Antibiotic: Remove 1 microorganism from the brains or the heart.
...

Stay tuned for further adjustement and news.
Every feedback is welcome !
Sorry for the broken english
thank you for your time.

MAJOR EDIT (20/11/2016)
MAJOR UPDATE:

After many platestings sessions, the game changed quite a bit.

Now the payers have to compete to destroy the most orans in the SAME body.
Organ numbers have been incresed to 8

BRAIN
LUNG HEART LUNG
KIDNEY LIVER KIDNEY
STOMACH


The different body parts need a different combination of microbes to be destroyed, but also a different number. Brain and hearth being the hardes to destroy, but give more points.

A system of body condition have been added. To make each game a nex experience. A total of 10 condition will be available. Only one or two will be drawn for each game depending on the difficulty level.

Example:
Alcoholism: Liver and kidney need 1 less microbe to be destoyed ( the last one is removed)

Heavy smoker: If one lung is destroyer, the second lung have to be detroyed too. The player get both points.


Special cards have now various uses:
examples:



Also the game drawing system is changed.

At first you draw 6 microbes cards, and 1 special card
the next two turns you draw 2 microbes and 1 special
and that's it. after that any drawing is forbidden.

So you have to do the most with what you have in hand to try to get the upper hand on your opponent.

Also, more microbes




Don't hesitate to give me any thoughts or feedback.

I'll hope you'll enjoy the changes

Hey Mohammed,

this looks like great fun. I run a science themed publisher (alley cat games) and our first game Lab Wars successfully funded on Kickstarter in July. I would be interested in taking a closer look at this. Would you mind PM'ing me your email address?

best wishes

UPDATE:

Currently changing and ballancing the special card effect.
there are now 2 types
1 type that is preemptive : you can place it in front of the organ cards , and need to be discarded by the opponent using the right microbes

the 2 type is directly removing microbes from your organs, or moving them to another organ.

here is a sample of the special cards.


Hope you'll like it.
