Rise of the Cow King, an illustration

    I think there should be an online version as well. There could be special cards available only for online and special cards available only for real world gameplay.

    Nice, mbease.
    Can we know more about this game, or is it still a big secret?


    I can spill a little bit of information. Here is our current "gist summary" in our game design document:

    "A board game influenced by games such as RISK, Magic: The Gathering, and Diablo. In this game, players will summon armies of Minions and Demons, use spells and special powers via drawn cards, and strategically manage hit points and mana resources. Players select one of three distinct classes at the beginning of each game, each specializing in different playstyles and receiving different card deck combinations to wreak havoc on others. Players will struggle to maintain control over the board in different ways, striving to destroy enemy players, their summons, and their means for resurrecting, leaving only one evil ruler to take over the world."

    This summary is very conservative, but I hope it will tie you over for now. The game has many rich, unique details and mechanics that make the game complicated, yet is simple enough that nearly anyone with experience playing basic board games will find the game easy to play. One team member likes to point out, "Not complicated, but complex."

    I find a lot of value in thinking far into the future, while one of us likes to bring the others (cough ME cough) back to the present when discussing possibilities. We're going to focus on the close future, but this game is a good one that seems like it could easily turn into a great online game. Only time will tell.


    During our last meeting, my team and I ironed out some leftover details, as well as some technical, most important ones, and we have chosen an official name for the board game (instead of calling it "UNTITLED BOARD GAME"). We are not dead set, though, so I cannot say yet.


    And now for something entirely different: Waffles!

    So... what is the working title then?

    Starts and ends with "D."


    Here's another revenant card graphic. I may lighten it, but it, being hard to see, looks excellent within its card frame.

    I like that last one, but nope.

    The name has two syllables, but I won't say how many words.

    Let's make it interesting: First person to guess the name it wins an absolutely free illustration of his or her choosing.


    For now, here's a bird:


    "289 Crow"

    Dark Deeds?

    Is it.....Dark Deed? (since 'Deeds' doesn't end with a 'D') :P

    Anyway, I like the style of the cards. Good job, man.
  • #412
    Death's Blood?

    Dark Deed? (Maka beat me to it if it's the answer.)

    Dark Turd?

    Death's Card?

    Dead Bird?

    Duly Read?

    Destroyed?

    Deviled?

    Drained Blood?

    I'll come up with more later, Blacklight is calling me.

    Nope, I would have counted it, even though he added the "s."

    And thanks! There are many more to come--I'm just getting started.
    I just completed the list of all the cards to make, including their stats, card drawing statistics, and desired copies of cards per game.

    You got the first word right on a couple of them. Remember, only two syllables!


    Tonight's is something stupid for once:


    "290 Fire Farting Bull"

    Dark Days?
    sto lavorando

    Doesn't end with D.

    Dark Creed?

    Another hint, then: There's an "L" in it somewhere.


    What a crappy clock:

    "292 Clock"

    You should draw us a hint!
