Pocket Brawlers - 1st Draft

I am working on a tabletop fighting game that consist of no more than 4-6 pieces per player on a battlefield that won't be bigger than a chess board. This first draft is sort of the "vanilla" version of how the codex (or rules) will play out. Here are stats for the 2 teams (protagonist / antagonist); I have been waiting for a while to use these Peg-O pieces :-D

This is Justice Hall vs The Mighty Glaxxos!!....and his minions :-)
Here is the first draft of rules for the combatents:

More LEGO Dice!!! :-D

I received my two eBay purchases today that consist of:
1.) 4 blank lego dice and
2.) 25 assorted faceplates.
This is a main component to the next game I have in mind called "Pocket Brawlers" (or maybe Peg-O Brawlers) and I got all of this for about $12 on ebay (that's including S&H) :-)

En Route!

I shipped out our package this morning to its first stop (Seattle WA), where it will be received and looked over by the lady (Julie Haehn) in charge of the amateur board game design contest :-) I shipped it priority and it should get there by Thursday the 12th.

With a deadline of May 15th we cut it pretty close, but I am glad that we made our deadline and hopefully our board game receives good feedback :-D

I am looking forward to KublaCon just 18 days away!

KublaCon is on memorial day weekend in S.F. May Friday 27th - Monday 30th 2011 at:

I received my cards from Superior Pod a few days ago and was very disappointed with the quality of the cards :-(

I got out a camera upon opening my package thinking I was going to take the final pictures of these great looking cards, and what I got was the exact opposite. All of the colors were way too dark!
The red backside were almost black, as was the green front side; several times darker than it should have been.

The cards were not cut properly and the images looked terrible :-(
I was really hoping to send in my amateur board game with amazing looking cards from the supposedly best card printer out there. But it looks like I will have to make my own copies and place them in card sleeves because I am really bummed that we spent so much hard work into making them and having Superior Pod deliver us this crap!

I emailed them with photo's and there response was, that it was our fault, "perhaps my monitor settings were off and that is why there is such a huge color difference". They also said that, "I did not place the cards on the template correctly and that is why they were not cut appropriately".
But we used there templates TO THE KEY!, and I have printed these cards on regular paper and got color results I just doesn't make sense.
Oh well....I guess INFERIOR POD just doesn't care about the little guys placing a single order :-(
I will never use them again or recommend them to anyone.

The package was delivered 3 days after being printed, that was good.

The front face card is already off color and the green cammo on the face card looks black :-(

The back of the card is supposed to have red cammo and it is also black :-(

They are all over exposed!

Some images are so dark that you cant see anything! All the detail has been lost! >:-(

A monkey with a cleaver cut these cards...ok that thought makes me smile a bit too :-)

Here is a sampling of what the cards should look like :-) I will be printing these out tomorrow and shipping my game to KublaCon first thing Friday morning :-D
