Happy Camper, Art and Concept by Paige Winkle, with strategy help from Chris Adkins. 2017 Two-Player Print and Play Game Design Contest

All Components are available below, one regular six-sided die is also required

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/pkw1a7zalbc5sfm/AACw1PtLKL_m37ghU...

Players: 2
Game Time: 45 min
Age: 12+

Components
106 Cards (9/page)
4 Summary Rule Cards
11-page Rule Book
1 regular, 6-sided die required (3D print file included... just kidding!)

Overview

In this struggle of hunger and wit, a Camper (player 1) squares off against the native Nature of northern Ontario (player 2). This game is unique in that each side plays with slightly different rules, but the goal is the same- whoever eats the most food first, wins. Both sides have tricks up their sleeves in this fast paced strategy game. It’s man vs nature.. a miniature war in the confines of a campsite. Who will go hungry?!!

Purposely constructed with only cards and a die; because when camping, a minimalist mindset is required !

Hi Paige, welcome to the contest!

You may need to check your card count - to qualify for the Deck & Dice prize you need to have exactly 54 cirds, or a multiple of 54 (e.g. 108). Kai, the sponsor of this prize category, made the rule, and you may want to clarify with him whether your rule summary cards count towards this or not.

Cheers!
JK

Really like that art!

Although its tricky for me to play test 2 player games, I have had a look at the cards and read through the rules.

Just picked up a couple of typos:
In the rules, second para, the is repeated.

On a few of the cards immediately is spelled incorrectly as immidiately.

Also, I have a personal dislike of unnecessary hyp-
henation. There are several cases on the cards where a word would fit in perfectly on a single line.

Good luck in the contest!

I can't see the art. It is obscured by the copyright symbol.

Very nice. I suppose I need to change the name of my WIP Happy Campers to avoid confusion. Very different games. Mine has competing campers trying to avoid misery during a week (or 2) of summer camp while maximizing fun.

I suppose I should have worked faster!

All the cards are covered by a big white (C) Paige Winkle which also covers some of the text???

This makes it unplayable/playtestable.

agreed. art must be redone so that copyright does not obscure it.

I've checked the cards, and while the copyright stamp does obfuscate some text on some cards, I think they are still readable and the game is playable.

Paige, artwork and design is automatically copyrighted the moment you create it, so there is no need to explicitly state this. I suggest that players will be more inclined to build and test the game with the unobscured artwork. As well, you might consider producing a low ink option in black and white with no art.

Regards,
JK

I like the idea of "person vs nature," and I've enjoyed reading the rules, but I am having a pickle of a time trying to imagine voting for this in "*Best Art/Graphic Design" if we're not allowed to look at the art and graphic design...
