Thursday Nights

These are my reports of the games we play and our views of the weaknesses and strengths of the games. I will be blunt, truthful and not always kind (except about my D&D Campaign!)

1st - A new Game

November 2012Posted by Sir Keith Tue, November 06, 2012 21:14:51

Tonight there were only four of us in attendance. As such we managed to trial the Squire's new game that he has designed.

This is a card and dice quest based game, where you build up your character before attempting quests. The game ends when a player has completed the master quest. There are different items, quests and abilities to gather, providing you can afford them and other affects that can either aid you or hurt others.

The combat is all done using different coloured D20's, depending on the type of combat you are having or items you are using. It is an interesting idea which can lead to some good combat. However there is some work to do especially with the melee balance that doesn't seem to quite work right.

There are also some issues with some of the cards, but for a first trial that is to be expected. However overall this is a good game that has some very interesting possibilities. It would be good to get more play-testing and to see where this game can lead to......
