2017 Two-Player Print and Play Game Design Contest

Overview
Mephisto is a strategy card game for 1-4 players. You play as one of the unlucky adventurers enslaved by the trickster demon Mephisto. To earn your soul back, you must race to collect seven monster souls for the demon...but you aren't the only one on this morbid quest. Be the first to appease the demon and fell your rivals to win Mephisto's game of life and death!

The board is built of a 3x3 grid from the dungeon deck.

Players spend their turn in 3 steps:

Explore
Equip
Fight/Rest


You will start by exploring a row in the dungeon and resolving any traps or events you reveal. Then, during your equip step you can play cards from your hand, activate weapons or items in your inventory or play spell cards. In the final step you will either fight a monster (and capture its soul) or rest instead (draw a card from the deck).

When you have 7 souls, you may fight your opponent instead of a monster. If you win this fight you win the game!

I saw your post on Reddit about the game; I'm really interested on making a print and play!

I would love to also feature the game in our Spanish written blog http://la-matatena.com

We are now playtesting some other games, but this one is the first one with that many cards.

Caution: Link for components has "Adobe Acrobat" screen with a link to install it. Seems unusual ... even suspicious. Could OP please update the component link.

Downloaded the file, scanned it, no virus.

It's probably due to how he saved the .pdf. Must have some functionality that prevents it from opening in gdrive.

Ah it looks like I saved as a pdf portfolio instead of a combined pdf yuk. The components link is updated now - thanks for pointing that out.

Update: I added some artwork to the bottom of the main post and a Tabletop Simulator link for those who would rather playtest digitally. I also have a gameplay walkthrough video here (the version of the game in the video may be different than the one currently playable).
