Let's create a board game! 2013-03-23 13:39:49 Reply

So I'm making a board game in flash (sue me) and I've decided to use the creative minds of the users of General! So far, I've only got some hexagonal tiles made, and they all have random associated with them; it doesn't look like much (because I've just began) so let's have it!

Not to be a negative nancy (you all know where you saw that quote before), but there are a FEW rules:
1) It should be family-friendly.
2) Suggestions should be related to board games at least.

I've got a few ideas but I'd like to know what comes up, if it's good then I'll possibly credit the poster. It may or may not see the light of day, but let's see what happens!

GO!

(and yes I know it's shit, I'm a crap artist, go figure)

I don't know why, but I have this odd gut feeling that you should have to roll a dice to decide how many dice you need to roll.

The pieces will be spherical and tend to roll away from where you want them to be.

Some type of fantasy underwater thing. like with candyland as a rough outline.
The chance cards should be message in a bottle type things you find and read.
Seaweeds, mermaids, clams that either eat you or let you steal their pearls, shark scares, etc


The sig that I'm wearin? Awesomely made by Skaren!

How about an RPG version of Monopoly where you can level up your character, upgrade the dice to include more numbers and battle against other players if you land on the same octagon?

Copy Catan. You can't simplify it, so copy it and claim it yours.

Hmm... I've come up with something that elegantly fits these criteria.

5 players stand round a bucket and take turns shitting in it. The one who has the smelliest farts has to dunk their head in it while all the other players scream "Dab Ho! Dab Ho!" It's called "Dab Ho" or "the smelliest fart"... whatever you like really.

How about you somehow make a RTS (turn by turn), hexagonal version of snake? This one is 4 real.

So both players are racing towards the apple or whatver? And there are tactics like blocking the other player and maybe power-ups to make things interesting?

Sorry, it's the best I've got.. You might just want to stick with the shit dunking game.

How about there are some tiles that flash really quickly, and some tiles that flash really slowly, and some tiles that stay solid. And you've got to get through the flashing tiles quickly before they change colour?

Yeah, that's a sweet idea. It's like a 2d platformer, but everything is hexagonal tiles of different colours, so it's like ultra lo-bit, or whatever. DONE

What are you talking about. This could produce something interesting! I suggest something like "othelo."
