celine for sale

Land of DangerAs I’ve been hinting at for a while, the background history and theme overview of the celine tote replica has now been updated. Very soon, there will be a few more games available under this theme in addition to Castle Danger.

And, as I continue finishing off the “clearing the table” steps I mentioned in celine phantom outlet , I am getting the rules to King of Danger publish-ready, and it’ll be available again as a print-and-play and as celine tote replica product on celine mini luggage tote replica . (I’ll also have some Jump Gate related news in the next few weeks as part of this “cleaning” process as well.)

But, back to the Land of Danger … the thing I find the most exciting about all of this is the new game that is listed at the bottom of the theme overview page.

More about that in a couple days! :)

The King of Danger Card from "King of Danger, v7"After the Michigan Protospiel this past July, I chloe handbags outlet to King of Danger. Well, you can pretty much ignore all of those things … because I tried them and didn’t like what it turned out to be. Plus, it became obvious that I was starting to overlap too much with chloe handbags replica cheap  (now on the back-burner), which had the same background theme, but different game design goals.

So, I reset once again, reviewed what I liked and didn’t from the previous 5 versions, focused on my original goals and the notable advice I’ve gotten from other designers and players, and set out to make version 7.0 the game I really want it to be … and I think I’ve done it. :) Here’s how it looks … Continue reading

"Steam Train on Watercress Line" by Jenny GillelandSo, it’s been a couple of months of downtime on the games front for me.

Part of the time off had to do with the start of the school year and needing to focus on what my kids were up to, along with organizing the teaching program I run at church. Part had to do with a severe lack of motivation following Protospiel-Michigan in July, and not being able to attend any of the cool up-coming events this fall (GenCon, Gaming Weekend at the Geek Compound, Protospiel-Madison, BGG.Con, etc.). And a strong part of it had to with the weird, bio-rhythmic nature of my creative process (expect a blog write-up on this soon).

Those last 2 items are kind of related. So is my need — apparently — to do an christian louboutin boots in order to re-focus my game design time. I nearly always have too many creative project irons in the fire, and I have to pause here and there to do a mental reset to gain some perspective. So, on to how I am getting the train rolling again … Continue reading

red bottoms boots

King of Danger, Main Deck Back, Feb 2014The game of mine that got the most playtests while red bottoms shoes was King of Danger. While I was happy enough with it as it was — a super-tight little trick-taker about building and tearing down castles — it was wound a little too tight. There was no room to breath or make a bad play, and — as my buddy red bottoms pumps put it after playing it with him and a friend at his house — there was no room to be clever or coy in how you played.

As a result, I felt it needed improvement, and removed the print-and-play links and took it out of red bottoms women until I could nail down what I wanted it to be. Before leaving Chevee’s place, we brainstormed a little bit and found that if it wasn’t quite as strict about following suit, allowing you to follow suit OR play a King, it loosened things up a bit. This felt better, so I tweaked the rules and brought it with me for testing. Continue reading

Map to Protospiel, Chelsea, Michigan, July 2014Tomorrow, I leave for a pretty exciting game design related road trip. I’ll be picking up Jeff King (from christian louboutin pumps ), Jason Glover (from christian louboutin boots ), and David Sheppard (known to most as christian louboutin men ) along the way. We’re headed to this year’s christian louboutin women , where indie designers get together to test prototypes of their games with each other. While it’s always great to get games tested by a wide mix of players, getting them tested by other designers can yield espresso-like shots of great feedback you can’t get anywhere else.

King of Danger, TGC Version, Card Examples - March 2014I will be focused on testing my two christian louboutin sandals card games — King of Danger and Danger at the Walls — along with my tile-laying, pick-up-and-deliver game set on the 1800s prairies, Abbottsville. I will also bring Magistrate along for continued testing as well.

Abbottsville, Early Playtest at Paul's Cabin, May 2014Another exciting development will be that Jeff Large from red bottoms sandals will be there, testing my game, Aether Magic, which they will be publishing later this year. Can’t wait to watch that one being tested by Jeff and the designers there. A few of them may have played it in Milwaukee during the March 2013 Protospiel when it was still called “For Goods and Honor” … it’s undergone quite a thematic change, but the main social and production mechanics are still there.

I will try to send out tweets while the roadtrip is taking place, and throughout the weekend. So, christian louboutin men to see how that bit of chaos works out! 😉

Whisper, whisperIf you’re familiar with the hermes kelly handbags , you’ll know what I mean when I refer to my muse giving me an idea for a game … or when I say that I’m waiting on my muse to help me figure out the answer to something I’m working on.

I don’t actually believe that I have an invisible woman following me around, whispering in my ear with new, creative ideas. But, I’ve always found … Continue reading

Danger at the Walls, Main Deck Back, June 2014When I first started Danger at the Walls this past January, I wanted a quick-playing, 2-player battle game that just used cards.

Initially it was going to be 2 small decks — 1 for Red, 1 for Blue. Take your deck, shuffle, and try to capture enough of your opponent’s cards to win. Both players had ways to build their own walls, tear down the other’s walls, and capture the other’s cards. Since the decks were small, there was a lot of cycling through the cards in a way that didn’t require more shuffling. A sort of deck-depleter (as opposed to a deck-builder) with room for some clever power card combos. But, it didn’t really work. I mean, it worked mathematically, but there wasn’t much “there” there. So I actually decided to put it on hold sometime in April.

Then, in May, I had an idea pop into my head … Continue reading

As part of my developing hermes kelly handbags , I started working again on my trick taking game, King of Danger.

When I put the project on hold this past summer, I didn’t really like the game any more. I knew it had potential, but it seemed to be bloated and floundering.  So, it went on the shelf until I started thinking about it again in December.

This time around, I cut the game way back. Took the card count on the main deck down to 26 cards, and reduced the max player count to 5 players. Here’s the current full set of cards now (click for bigger pic): Continue reading

Merry Christmas 2013 from Matt Worden Games

It’s time for me to put the game operations on pause until after the New Year. I’ll likely still be on prada handbags cheap and prada sunglasses cheap during the next couple of weeks, but I don’t plan on doing much with moving my game designs forward, or posting about things until we’re into 2014.

So, it seems like a perfect time to look back at the fun and excitement that’s been had over the past year, and to mention a few things that I see coming up in the near future.

Let’s start with a walk through the 2013 calendar. Continue reading
