Notes from a Failed Game

March 28, 2011

Lets just get this out of the way; this game is boring.  At no point do you feel like you are competing against anyone.  Rather than playing, you feel like you are demonstrating that game elements do not make a game.
With this painful awakening behind me, I now have a lot more work to do before draft2.

None of these questions are answered in the game, but I now have a playable rules draft and pieces.  It is still pretty simple, and a lot more work has to be done, but I should have something to share this weekend, which was better than I expected.

The game is progressing much slower than I expected.  Fun, but hard.  So to keep from despair, some pencil drawings of space like things.
