Spellslinger: Camelot

level-4bBack in 2013 I developed a Magic: the Gathering set used to teach people how to play Magic (as seen here). There are four different difficulty levels to help ease a person into the complexity of the game.

I am now developing a new version that can be considered a standalone game with new card frames, a King Arthur theme, and some other unique elements. It can also be considered to be a new version of Spellslinger (originally developed from late 2013). Continue reading

If Monopoly Had Corporate Welfare & Crony Capitalism

chance hostile takoverWhy can’t you buy off politicians or get a bail out from the Federal Reserve when playing Monopoly? Monopoly can be more realistic. It doesn’t show all the unfair advantages the rich really get. These cards represent what it is missing. (Monopoly is trademarked by Hasbro. These cards are meant to be educational & a parody.)

Crazier Eights is on Kickstarter

crazier1I am trying to publish my own game for the first time. One of the best ways to try to publish a game is to use Kickstarter, which lets people pledge money for having the game made (including manufacturing costs). With enough money, people who make a pledge can get a copy of the game, and the game will be manufactured.

Crazier Eights is a fantasy card game that is similar to Crazier Eights (the game Uno is based on). You take turns drawing a card, playing a card for an effect, and discarding a card that has the same color or rank as the top card of the discard pile.

That means that this is your chance to get a game I made. You can go here to see the Crazier Eights Kickstarter page. You can also find a lot of information about Crazier Eights at CrazierEights.com
