Board Games

Sometimes a game is just a game.  Designed to be fun, challenging, interesting and a game.  These games don't have a larger world to explore or draw upon.  These are games to play and I hope you enjoy them as I did creating them.

Panic: The Bad Scifi Movie Game Design Detail

Enter the New Panic

Yep its here, Panic Pre BETA! More interaction with the board, no tactical movement, more lines, more special effects, more chances to sabotage other players and when your character is out you can still play for more screen time.

So the changes start with the board, adding scene locations so players move from location to location and choose when they do a scene.  the number sets how many cards both sides can play.  Pods can also now count as a Prop Type, allowing you to heal, activate Immunities, or Special Effect (SFX) cards.  

The Scene cards are the other major change.  These cards set the target for the dice roll (still d10) for the acting player.

The ID cards now have skills listed making each character more dynamic and play differently.  The skills give you dice and cards to use to better your acting or sabotage your cast mates.

Adding a new script card type increased the , On The Set cards either boost the acting roll or hinder it, adding the value to the acting roll or the scene target

So these are a few of the cards that have changed or been added, Panic plays fast and funny.  Players can enjoy adding viruses to other players scenes or simply trying to kill a character because they were a bad boss or a romance went bad, whil doing it through a megaphone.  

Next update we will talk about the Line cards, SFX cards, Virus cards and How the Character skills work..

Designer Diaries - Panic Playtest Weekend

2 Play Tests Weekend

Play Test 1: Saturday

So on Saturday I was able to play Panic with a buddy, we'll call him Ron (its his name), and his son Sean.  Sean wanted to watch us play so it was my first 2 player game with the new design.  It went awesome.  Ron won with 78 minutes or Screen time to my 68, he won with 2 excellent moves, 1 I had sabotaged a scene to a 50+ target.  Sean rolled for Ron and got a 37 on 1 die.  Then He rerolled 2 dice using his special skill, and got 17 more Plus the 6 he had just what he needed to get 15 minutes for the scene and killing a virus.  The second thing Ron did was ending the game early using the Self Destruct special effect.  I sabotaged the scene to only a 30, he rolled well and made it, then rolled to try and end the game this turn, rolled a 9 (2d10) and re-rolled again, getting a 14 and ending the game after my last scene.  I failed that roll (it was ugly highest die was 6 after the re-roll of 4 dice).  

So Ron came out ahead and was the star of the show.

The Dark Crystal Board Game Downloads

My last article was about making this the board game it should have been, an EPIC STORY.  These downloads are the second version of these rules, expanded after a few playtests.  The idea of these rules is to give the Gelflings more control over Thra and the wilds around them. 

Thra A Living World of Danger

Aughras Observatory comes out when the Gelflings are able to create the right conditions, and they have new powers to help them explore the world and experience real adventures using the world cards. The Wise ones can help even from a distance, while Kyra's knowledge of Thra lets her change the board, and increase the chance that the Observatory can be revealed.

Powerful Skeksis

The Skeksis have new powers to stop the Gelflings, while also being able to fight to be Emperor as the game continues.  They also can influence challenges from afar, making it harder for the Gelflings at every turn.

Epic Combat and Escapes

Combat is no longer a grueling roll fest, you roll once and the winner determines the outcome.  A winning Gelfling can choose to escape rather than fight, expanding their knowledge of Thra.  An escape can lead to amazing adventures and challenges

While the Skeksis can use the capture of a Gelfing to try to become emperor and stop the Gelflings and the end game is now a dangerous fight.

The End Game is now one that leads to divided Skeksis having the choice to fight or unite.  The Gelflings have the opportunity to leap to the crystal and end the game avoiding the Skeksis and combat.

The Game is now an epic story with strategy and powers that give players choices, and its FREE!
