Great news on the horizon! Actually, it's already here!
I have brought my game into the testing phase once again. After years in the remaking, I have finally brought it back to playable. I played it for the first time in years with all the new changes and rules and update card graphics!
It works! It was only two of us playing, and only on half the board, but it works. We tested as many things as we could in the time limit that I had. Everything works. There were a few things that needed to be added because I just forgot to add them to the rules printout that I had and then a few other things that needed to be tweaked as we played for it to run smoother, but all in all, it works!
We had fun testing it too. We killed each other several times to test out the combat as well. Only thing we didn't test for the combat was using skills and spells during it. But thats because we never really got higher than level 2 and only had a few skills and spells that we couldn't cast or use.
The majority of playing was the both of us running into dungeons and killing monsters. Then, on to killing each other. After that, we had fun capturing lands and sending out militias or armies after each other for fun.
In the next playtest, I will have third person to play and I'll make sure to take more pictures of the playthrough. We are hoping with the updated rules from the other days' test, things will be much smoother and much more of a challenge with an added person. We will need to test this game with the few of us for the time being to get more of the kinks out before I move on to inviting some of our friends and family over to try it.
But, I can now rest easy a bit while that happens. Now I can easily just start work on my other games a bit while we wait to playtest again. Between the playtests, I'll update the game and have loads more time to work on the others. Which I have about 10+ games in the works. Some small and simple, some large and complex like this one.
Now I just need to make some tokens to print out and glue to my little wooden pieces. :D
Enjoy the picture I took before we played.
