RE: Artisan's Contest XXI - WinnersAdmiral 05-12-2017

Well done folks, and congratulations on medals to those who made the cut. There's lots of worthy stuff in there and some imaginative original ideas. We'll have Chaos Dwarf boardgames to play for years to come now.

Great turnout! Takes Hat off

However, while I have to thank those who voted for me, I'm very surprised to make it to a medal place at all, let alone silver, especially with so many more decidedly better entries around. I'm lousy with rules and games and this shows on tabletop and whenever I try to tinker with something in that vein. Although I had some vague idea of using a Chaos star for a board and wanted to make something odd, what you see in Starcrage is the following:

A non-playtested boardgame written virtually last-minute before deadline since no better ideas had presented themselves. Almost all of the movement rules etc. were made up on the spot with little to no prior planning since game design is a weak area of the maker to say the least. Given that I couldn't produce a good, balanced boardgame, I just went for something clashing and wild on the Daemon half of the rules, as could be expected of freak Chaos. Starcage was made in primitive MS Paint, and it shows! I'll have to try it out now that people liked it.

Also glanced at the Royal game of U-r (CDO autocorrects U-r without the middle line into Your, sorry Sumerians) and Egyptian Senet, but never did anything in those directions. I had to apologize to Bloodbeard for submitting a retarded entry to his brilliant idea of a contest, but what the heck, the fun is in participating. Perhaps Starcage wasn't a complete mess after all? Certainly not up to the level of the competition. Gaining silver here is proof that Dark Gods are indeed fickle!

So, did people really try out Starcage? How did you find it played like? Happy

Congrats to the winners! If I ever get my cards and tiles all complete I'll repost my game.

It's designed to be like the Dungeons and Dragons Adventure System Board Game - Castle Ravenloft only with more levelling and character progression to blend RPG with a board game experience.

And although the rules are quite complicated it's easy to follow when you know how, has little set up and can be easily expanded on.

Just to note also none of the monster / heroes have been balanced enough for a single player experience but with tweaks I feel it will be a 1 - 6 player game could be a possibility.

RE: Artisan's Contest XXI - WinnersDaith 05-12-2017

Thanks so much for your votes and support for my game! I have been looking at this site for a long time and love the creativity these contests foster. This theme in particular got me quite excited, and I thought it was such an amazing theme that had to create a game and join the forum.

Admiral, it sounds like you are pretty hard on your own game. There are many positive things to be said for simplicity and clarity. Whether your game was play tested or not, you have a knack for inspiring and creative ideas and this shows in your game, even if you feel if it was overly simplistic and unbalanced.

To other boardgame creators, great games! I did not get a chance to play through all of them thoroughly, but I very much enjoyed reading through the rules and seeing what other people came up with.
