Four way "Rock, Paper, Scissors" doesn't work unless you have three or five instances. However, we are able to add a little depth and strategy (while also balancing the rock paper scissors mechanic) by introducing spell casting mechanic. This is accomplished with creating the weaker colors to provide stronger spells. Balance is one of the fundamental building blocks whether it be a wallet card game or Settlers of Catan. #irontablegame #ITG #gamedesign #boardgames
Worked on a prototype for the "design a game using 18 identical cards " challenge today.
Things always work better in your head but so far it's fast out-count-your-opponent thing influenced by engine building and worker placement ideas with a community organizer theme.
Aaron Lenard is happy to show the final version of his animated Ninja for today's #makermonday. During this entire project, he wanted to experiment with polygonal smears and how it can be applied to his character. Most of this process was having fun with the limited space he placed the character in to try out different ways he could throw his #shurikens. It’s a heavily video game-inspired scene and OMNI (Old Man Ninja Iwai) was based on some of Aaron's favorite characters from old-school kung-fu movies and game properties.

Here’s a sneak peek at Museum of The Moon presented by @thebentway featuring a touring artwork by @lukejerramartist along with a special silent disco set by @richaucoin on Saturday, 14th September as a full harvest moon rises over Toronto, with Moon Merge. This seven-metre wide sculptural moon under the Gardiner fuses lunar imagery to bring the moon’s surface to life on earth.

TODAY'S QUESTION OF THE DAY: What is your favourite game for sabotage
So this weekend we delved into a newly acquired Codenames and because there were only 3 of us, took turns rotating spymasters with a single operative. This meant when you were the single operative, you had to be completely unbiased and resist any urge to sabotage 😜
I am happy to say that we all managed it pretty well (other than a few moments of unintentional self-sabotage) but there was still a part of me that had an overwhelming urge to throw the occasional spanner in the works (sorry Ash)
I think it's for this reason that Saboteur has always been a favourite party game in our group!
What are your favourites for sabotaging your friends 😉
