Archive of Marketplace Items / Looking For: Table Playmat
« on: July 24, 2017, 12:36:09 PM »
Anyone know where I should start looking for a table playmat? Something like 5ft long.

I don't usually post things like this, I don't usually enter them because I don't win em', but I checked out this one, and I stayed for the Newspeak Challenge puzzles.
So there is this Ultimate Tabletop Giveaway Contest put on by Inside the Box Board Games. There are tons of prizes and lots of ways to get entries.

Cool, right? But then I noticed you can get a lot of entries by doing these Newspeak Code Challenges. (Basically the publisher is coming out with this new legacy code cracking board game later in the year called Newspeak on Kickstarter, so they're creating buzz by making these mind numbing teasers). Doing the challenges gets you tons of points, so I thought yeah, sure. I have some time to kill and I'm pretty good at puzzles.

No.

These puzzles are mean. Verging on rude.
You have to do what to get the answer?

There are 3 puzzles:
Newspeak Code Challenge 451
Newspeak Code Challenge 1984
Newspeak Code Challenge 160811

The number of the challenge doesn't have anything to do with the challenge itself. All you need is cunning and Google. It took me probably half an hour to figure out the first one. Probably 2 hours to get through the second one (I'm not fast, but I got the job done, ok?). And I've been going at the third one for a day and a half with no answer. A DAY ... AND A HALF! I don't even care about the contest anymore, I just can't let this puzzle lie uncompleted. I need to know how it works!

So come, join the contest. I need your guys help getting the third puzzle. I just can't brain anymore. :-\

Hey guys, our PWYF team, Natural 20's, is going to do a Paint Nite fundraiser this year!
It'll just be a fun laid back event with some paint and some drinks, I'd really appreciate it if you could join us. :)

Even if you can't make it, if you could spread the information to friends or family that might be interested, that would also help us a lot. Thanks!

The Moor Visitors Expansion, designed by famed designer Uwe Rosenberg (Agricola, Caverna, Patchwork) and Viticulture designers Jamey Stegmaier and Alan Stone, adds 40 new visitors to any version of Viticulture.

Backstory

Last year I had the pleasure of collaborating with one of my design idols, Uwe Rosenberg (Agricola, Caverna, Patchwork, etc), on the Viticulture Essential Edition. On a whim, I asked him if he would be interested in designing a few visitor cards. I figured he might design 3 or 4 cards, and I'd turn them into a promo pack to sell on BGG.

Several days later, Uwe sent me 64 card designs.

I cut some cards that didn't fit well into Viticulture and honed the rest for balance and wording. The remaining 40 visitor cards now comprise the Moor Visitors Expansion, the name of which is both a play on the word "more" and on Uwe's "Farmers of the Moor" expansion to Agricola. Every card is beautifully illustrated by Beth Sobel, and most of the cards feature Uwe's friends and family. There's also a special card based on this Viticulture-themed proposal story. In addition to the 40 visitor cards--which fit into any version of Viticulture (they're marked with a tiny "MV" icon)--we've included reprinted versions of the Promoter and the Harvest Machine.

The Moor Visitors Expansion has already been printed, and it will arrive in St. Louis in a few days (along with more copies of Viticulture and Between Two Cities).

There was an email sent today to Stonemaier newsletter subscribers that Jamey has been working on a secret expansion called the Moor Visitors for Viticulture. It's going on pre-order today through BoardGameBliss, for $16. I'm grabbing a copy and was wondering if anyone else wants to bulk order this to save on shipping. [link]

Preorder ends Sunday (Feb 28th), so I'm going to put the order in on Sat. If you want in, post here or msg me by tomorrow @ 8pm, so I know how much to split the shipping by. Then we can arrange to get the money in beforehand. I'll only order the ones who have paid.

I have a bunch of duplicates I want to get rid of. :P

I have probably around 50 commons, and 25 uncommons. No rares or super rares. All of the uncommons have the dice that go to them, only some of the commons have dice for them. Looking to get rid of it all in one go. Post or msg me and offer something. May trade for commons/uncommons of another set, or completely different games, but just msg me first and we can go from there.

Archive of Game Discussion / Discussion on Playmats
« on: August 25, 2014, 12:46:56 PM »
I figured this would be an interesting topic, and as I'm currently looking into a game that has some, that I'd post it on here.

I'm wondering what people think about those neoprene playmats.
Not specifically on quality, I know that some are really nice and others ... well, they work for what you need them for.
But what do you guys think about them being a part of a game. Do you like playing with them? If it's a game that doesn't necessarily need them, or the game already comes with paper mats that fit in the game box, is it something you consider buying anyways? Do they end up taking too much space? And how do you store yours? I have a game that they actually fit in the game box, and am glad to have them because of it, but I also have a bunch for games where they don't fit, and have to be stored separately. Does that change your opinion on them? I'm the kind of person who doesn't like to have to carry more then one box for each game, fitting all expansions one way or another into one gamebox if possible, so that opinion rolls over for these mats as well. Sometimes it feels like more of a hassle to remember to pack the mats.

There are some games they work really well for. For example, I think the playmats for Dice Masters are amazing and almost necessary. Whereas there is a mat for Pixel Tactics that looks really pretty, keeps your cards straight and possibly faster to strategize, but technically not necessary (I still use mine all the time), and yet still a mat for Yomi, which just keeps track of your health with numbers on the side of it and nothing more.

I'm just curious on other people's opinions.  ;) So, what do you think? Do you have mats for games that you think everyone should be playing with?

Ok, here's a game design question I've been trying to figure out for a while and still haven't come up with a workable solution to.

The Information you Need to Know:
It's a one-on-one game, so just 2 players. Each player has 6 dice to roll for attacking/defense. You can reroll the dice up to 3 times. Players are playing/rolling at the same time. Players cannot see what the other is rolling, but can see the opponents character card.

Here's my dilemma. You can see the character, but can't see what they are rolling. You aren't supposed to know if they rolled the right sides or not, so as not to persuade what you are trying to roll for, but you can see what they are trying to roll for, so you know how you should approach the fight. Seeing the dice your opponent rolled would be a problem because if they missed an attack because they didn't roll the right sides, maybe you would then change your strategy and go for more damage moves then defense, etc and then it would just be a waiting game to see who rolled what first. Then add on the fact that you can reroll any of the dice up to three times.

The Problem:

So what I'm trying to figure out is how do you deter someone from trying to roll more then 3 times and how do you deter someone from just changing the die's face, when you can't see what they've rolled until both sides are done rolling?

Like if you took King Of Tokyo and made it so the other players could only see your final dice roll. What's to keep you from turning the lonely 1 result into a Claw...

Hey guys!

I'm trying to coordinate a King Of Tokyo tournament and am wondering how many people would be interested in joining something like that. Just trying to find a rough number so I can get some prize support set up for it. It would be done all in one night, probably at one of the Chewsday Challenges, but could be set up on another day if there are too many conflicting events with the people interested. Let me know if it's something you'd be interested in!

Thanks!

I have a few games that I've either picked up to try or have been given that I'd like to get off the shelves. Most of these are really simple games, good for family game nights, or party-like events with non-gamers.

Send me a message and name a price or if you have something you'd like to trade.
All of them are in new condition, played once or twice, except TMNT which came to me used.

Archive of Game Discussion / Painted Minis and Custom Dungeons
« on: January 04, 2014, 01:47:08 PM »
I bought a set of Super Dungeon Explore last year, and it was my first miniatures game. So I went through and painted the 52 figures, and I had a really fun time doing it. During that time I found a lot of kickstarters for custom dungeon layouts, or recreating dungeons from popular games in a 3D layout. And I got really excited about those as well. I'm planning on getting some materials and making some sets for myself.

My question is, does anyone feel like there is a market out there to actually sell something like this? I really enjoyed painting the figures, but at the end of the day, I don't want to clutter the house up with finished projects just because I had fun doing them. Does it matter to you to have a painted set? Would you use a 3D dungeon? What do you think you would consider to pay for a painted piece or set of your favorite game? 

I'm not looking for buyers, I really just want to know peoples opinions towards painted figures for games or 3D dungeons.

Thanks!
