So here are a lot of pics of the game thus far. I don't plan on posting the rules anytime soon because I would like to submit my game for review at a board game convention (possibly KublaCon or Strategicon in 2011). I am even considering submiting my game to Twilight Creations Inc, but I hear they reject a lot of ideas.
I would like to show you what the entire set-up looks like thus far. Please keep in mind that the game is 80% complete and the board still needs some work :-)
Nuff Said! :-)
This game is 2-4 players, and you get to pick between Rusty, Casey, Oats, and The Hammer (Green Team).
Along with having to complete your dangerous 3 tours of war, you will end your turn by rolling for Death's movement. You will definitely want to evade this guy :-(
THE 2 DECKS OF CARDS AND CUSTOM D12'S
These are the "Supply Depot" deck (in blue), and the "Open Fire" deck (in white/should be and soon to be red). These are also the custom d12 for combat in my game. Movement is a d8 for players and a d4 for Death (dice not shown).
BOARD ICONS AND GAME TOKENS
There are 5 basic icons that you can land on (7 if you count the starting square and Death's place).
TANK (CONVERTED CARRYING CASE)
This tank holds the 2 decks of cards and dice needed to play the game :-D
*See older post to see the holding area of the tank.*
This is supposed to be a super deformed helicopter, but it still needs the tail, guns and propeller. This counter is used at the end of the game.
PILOT JOHN G. SESAME & FIELD MEDIC SILKY-KAY!
If you have read some of my older post you will recognize pilot Sesame, but Silky-Kay is new to the team. She will help heal people of wounds and conditions. (replacement for A.I.D.)
P.O.W. (POINT TOKEN)
The winner of the game isn't the fastest player to complete his or her 3 tours of war; There is also a point system for saving P.O.W.'s and your actions in the game :-)
These tokens are randomly placed on the board and are worth 1-3 pts.
DEATH CATCHES UP
One visit from DEATH will not outright kill you, but if you are severely wounded he can end your game!
CASUALTIES OF WAR
Whether by gunfire or encounter by Death, there are tokens for those who fall in battle :-(
This is Swizzle who happens to be a real person and friend who has helped me shape 3 T.O.W. into what it is :-)
He is the first member of the Gold Team which will be introduced in the first of several expansions planned! :-D
