I'm excited for a weekend of playtesting. This game has so many possible variations, it makes it fun, but also hard to land on what the best balance of cards is..
I've been working and tweeking the design of our board for quite a while now. Most of my ideas are good, but my art and my design tends to be quick and sloppy. My wife on the other hand is super talented and very good at taking my ideas and making them 100x better. The problem that arises is that she is slow.. good, but slow.. so I find myself wanting her help and loving the work she is doing ... but what that means is I get to become MR.Mom alot of the time. "Hey Honey can you look after the boyw while I work on your game?""yes.. of course babe" ... then 3 hours pass and I'm still babysitting and waiting for a beautiful new game board... fun fun ... still trying to figure out a balance ;)
We just upload and got everything working for our Tabletopia Playtester of Carthage. Its looks great and plays well. Contact me if your interested in trying it out. - Luke
My wife is a much better designer than me, I love her, She is meticulous and brilliant. She works hard and puts in the time to make my ideas better and beautiful. Check out her rendition of my player board...
Now comes the long journey of building a working prototype that showcases the game art and effectively plays the game theme. Lots of cards to fix, and designing to do. Luckily my wife and I love doing graphic design work. Too bad we don't have a nanny...
