Re: Design Concepts


I am thinking about another "card plus action points game" this one might have a new thing added to it if... I can get the concept settled in my own mind...

Re: Design Concepts (game grid)


I have designed a (hopefully unique) game grid for use in future games. Yes, I am still working on a "Cosmic Empire" space game. emoticon

Re: Design Concepts


Would the "between" spaces have some meaning/use (borders etc.)?
Otherwise, isn't that just square board with rule to only move diagonally?

Also - note that I don't have experience of such games - that zero seems kind of out of place for me, I'd make it 10 or leave out (hex...) or move to before 1.

Re: Design Concepts


Thanks, I enclosed each square with polygons which can be used to indicate north, south, east, and west relative to the square. Movement is from square to square to keep things simple.

Re: Design Concepts


I moved the "0" to the beginning octagon. Since each of the squares are equidistant from each other this makes movement more realistic when moving in a diagonal. The polygons help in visualizing a players position and opens up new ideas on any combat or scouting related activities. The visible choices equate to 5 choices in movement:

Using octagon 0-0 has the example we have:

0-0 = on the square
0-0-N = coming in from the northern polygon
0-0-E = coming in from the eastern polygon
0-0-S = coming in from the southern polygon
0-0-W = coming in from the western polygon

When it comes to combat the grid gives 3 options:

if... the players are in the same area combat or scouting would be unmodified.

if... the players are in adjacent areas the combat or scouting could have a adjustment of say -1 to the results table.

if... the players are in opposite areas the combat or scouting could have a adjustment of say -2 to the results table.

Other ideas, if... we wanted a total 3D effect then we could use H and L to indicate High and Low so for example 0-0-N-H would say the player was coming in from the North and High (relative to the center of the square). In a 3D setting I think we would need a -3 adjustment to the results table to give realism to the idea of:

Player A movement: 0-0-N-H
Player B movement: 0-0-S-L

Re: Design Concepts


I have about half the star map done now... I might actually get a chance to start on the 1st rules draft for "Cosmic Conquest" next week. emoticon

Re: Design Concepts


The space theme got me thinking of a game that would be set in a star system: planets and moons, some habitable, some you could mine and perhaps some just points to travel through.
Maybe each planet and moon could be a chess board battle area, Arena-style...

Actually that could make an extended version of Naval Arena.

Possibly coming in future: Space Arena

Coolness, depending on what you come up with "Space Arena" might make a nice addition/alternative to what I am working on in "Cosmic Conquest." emoticon

Re: Design Concepts


I have been thinking (uh oh)... What about a "treasure hunt" or "scavenger hunt" type of game? We could use just this message board or have some puzzle pieces scattered on other "member boards." Good idea?
