Misty Moon Games (my new fledgling) has released a free game on its Web site: Army Ants.

The Red Ants and a Black Ants are at war! Each side marches from their respective anthills, ready to do battle. The mission: capture the opposing Queen!

Army Ants is a simple game that can be remarkably deep. Setup is easy and play is fast, with most games lasting about 20 minutes. All that is needed to play is a standard deck of playing cards (but it's still a board game).

Drop by the Misty Moon Games Web site to download your copy today!

Have fun!

Thanks! I think you'll find it pretty satisfying; I was surprised at how much of a head scratcher it can be against a worthy opponent. FYI, I prefer the optional Alternative Setup #1.

Let me know how it goes. cool

Looks fun, thanks.

You have a minor error in the rules...

Under the portion of the rules that describe the Swap! move, the second sentence references Moving Out instead of Swap! (see below).


Swap!
When you perform a Swap! command, you have one of your cards trade places with one of its adjacent friendly cards. The following rules are in place when Moving Out:

I think making "gamer" type games out of standard playing cards is a worthy endeavor (something I tried to do in Dueling Nobles). I'll check it out.

In the Swap! example, it says, "In the example to the right..." but the example diagram is on the left.

Looks good, hope to try it out soon!

I think with minor changes, this game could be adapted to the Mü and more game.
