for creating the badge!

So, for this month 10 have been tipped! YAY!



It't the time of the year again, and the SPIEL is drawing near.

So, this month's requirement is

Toy




Remember: The requirement is just a requirement - not necessarily a theme! It's up to you, how you involve it in your game!



Happy designing and kind regards,
Kai

p.s.:

In the behaviour rules (see link to basic rules thread above) I've written:
Quote:
Please create a second posting in that thread to present your creation.

Please do present your game along with a short description in a posting. The reason I ask you to do this is simple: Creating geeklist entries becomes easier for me because from time to time copy-n-pasting from PDFs produces unexpected results (such as copying only odd symbols into the clipboard ..)
Thanks a lot

And if you'd like to spread the word of this contest, feel free to tweet about it:

I was thinking of something where a villain would toy with the hero... Hmm... maybe an acronym.

Trouble Over Yorvu

AtoY

A word deduction game of missing letters and unreliable information for 3 to 4 players.

Each player creates a word using the letter cards dealt to them. One of the words is then selected at random. Only the player whose word was selected will know what it is. This player becomes the setter and the other players are solvers. The objective is for the solvers to guess the word and for the setter to obstruct this as far as possible. The game proceeds by players taking cards from their hands and placing them face up or face down. If one or more cards are placed face down then an additional action is taken. This can be swapping cards with another player, taking a card from a draw pile, or peeking at one of the letters in the hidden word.

This is not my i start post, just pouring out the thoughts.

I think I will participate into this month's challenge too, with a game using good old theme, toys protecting child's sleep agains nightmares.

I want to fit it in 18 cards and a game board (plus some pawns and dice), but I am affraid that I won't manage to draw the final version of the game in time. Again. Maybe sketchy artstyle will do the work, similar to Winter Tales? For cards it might work, but for game board itself?

A bit similar to my idea. Let's see what we can come up with.

Quick update:
Cards will look like this. I do not believe I will have more time to make them look any better. Now, the game board itself!

They look great! I'd love to be able to make pics that look this good as quickly as you did. And they are a great style for a PnP too. Looking forward to seeing how the whole project works out.

Dream Defenders


Night has fallen and fears wake up. Pack of plush toys tries to defend the child's sleep against nightmares turned into dolls, monsters, ghosts and even darkness itself. Will they succeed? Will they keep them back until the sunrise?

Dream Defenders is a cooperative game where players take control over plush toys that will move through children's room and push back rising nightmares represented by cards. Number of rising nightmares raises as the night proceeds and child can hold only a certain level of stress before it wakes up in horror.


Players: 1-4
Playtime: 10-15 min.
Age: 8+




You have seen the cards, here is also a game board.


End game looks like this. Toys have won.



Rules and PnP files are available here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B4BQyGglf_QPUllDekJS...

I know that game board manipulation is quite fiddly (read the rules and you will understand), but I designed it with higher component quality in mind. The nightmare rising mechanic is quite thematicaly effective, as the overhelming factor is present in both mechanical and visual form.

Also the time tracker thing could be placed on the board itself, just like the stress tracker. However I found the presence of two trackers aside a bit disturbing and I believe, that using the room's window as the round display makes from this tracker a nice gimmick

Last note: I finally did it in time!
