10,000 Tweets & Openly Designed Games

As of now, I’ve passed the 10,000 tweet mark.  I’m not sure what that means exactly, maybe I spend too much time tweeting, but I thought I’d pass off the occasion with a big announcement.  As I stated back in January, I’ve been refocusing my time and attention.  As part of this, and as influenced by some fantastic people, I’m taking on a more transparent approach to my game designing.  So, to get this going, I want to first give a quick overview of the games currently available and in development.  I’ll follow up with a post about each individual game, their various complexities, and development status.

Arena of Heroes is a game for 2 to 4 players, battling it out in the arena until there is only one combatant standing.  This game includes artwork by Alex Melchor and Wesley K. Hall.

Arena of Heroes is available through The Game Crafter.

 
Reversal of Fortune is a game for 2 to 4 players who are greedy pirates, trying to steal a little more than their fair share of the booty.  The fantastic artwork in this game was done by Wesley K. Hall.

Reversal of Fortune is available through The Game Crafter.

 
Road Kill Truckers is a game for 2 to 4 players that are interested in speeding down the winding country highways, looking for various critters to turn into road kill and rack up the points!  The gory art for this game is by Wesley K. Hall.
 
AirBuck$ is a game for 2 to 6 players that control and manage their own airline company. Players take turns building airports, buying airplanes, flying passengers to their various destinations, all the while bargaining for tickets, building on construction projects, and hoping to avoid natural disasters.
 
Empires of Andwynn is a civilization building game that has been play tested with up to 3 players. The game board is modular, so every game is different. Players can upgrade resource gathering buildings, the military units, and the civilization as a whole.
 
Compulsive Composers is an early prototype for a quirky card game about music. Players play cards to write music in various time signatures and can create notated combinations of similar note lengths to gain bonus points. Not only is this game fun for musicians that can already read and write music, but it can be used to learn these same skills.
 
Tortuga’s Treasure is a pirate themed RPG board game for up to 4 players. It includes 4 different and specific roles for each player, giving them individual duties on the ship and in combat. The final game will be my entry into The Game Crafter’s RPG Challenge.

So this is what’s in the works. As I said, I’ll follow up with more detailed posts on each game with play testing data and reactions. There are other games on the list as well, but they’re not far enough along the development track to be mentioned in this short overview post. Here’s to another 10,000 tweets! 🙂
