After a very successful weekend of playtesting at Metatopia, I can say with confidence that Cutthroat Caverns: Fresh Meat will launch in 2012 (Aug). AND YOU CAN BE PART OF IT!
How? By designing your own, unique Encounter Card for the game. It needs to have a Name, the Special Rules that make it unique to play, and an Attack Matrix that scales it from 3-6 players in life points and attack strength. If you've played, you'll know what we're after.
If you 'WOW' us with your idea, the card will be featured in Fresh Meat and bear your name - plus, as the Grand Prize winner, you'll score roughly $150 worth of product, including the expansion that has your creation. First Prize winners will also appear in the game with a credit and get roughly $60 in product.
So how do you 'WOW' us? 1. Make sure it is cool to play and has an OMG factor. 2. Make sure it isn't broken (testing helps) 3. Make sure it presents a interesting new wrinkle to one's strategy in either defeating it - or using it to your advantage.
We're off to a great start! The first entries have been rolling in and we're having an awesome time looking them over, laughing at the tough predicament they'll place characters into and looking forward to testing them out.
And the contest has only just begun - so there's plenty of time to dream up something special.
So when you've got one, be sure to send it our way.
