Finally used some clear Avery labels to print out icons for the dice.

Prototype dice turned out pretty good:



I did end up changing the icon for Move.

The sloooow steady progress continues...

The latest and greatest version of the rules is being refined.

Lots of rules have tightened up and the Quick Start Rules should be available soon.



A Bricks & Minifigs franchise location just opened about a mile away from my house and I've reached out to the owner about my project, so I think I'll have a place to play-test with a large group.



Stay tuned!

I've been working on some new items for the Arena prototype.

Obstacles block movement and may block ranged attacks.

Hazards block movement and can attack characters. Can not be destroyed.

Dangers can attack characters and can be destroyed.

Quick aside...

As I was thinking about a version of Minifig Meleee I could put on LEGO Ideas as a way to bring in more potential followers, I starting thinking about the combat mechanic and if there was an easy, more "accessible" version I could use.

Of course, Rock-Paper-Scissors aka Roshambo came to mind and quickly after that, its "big brother": rock-paper-scissors-lizard-spock (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kov2G0GouBw ).

Here's a quick take at a resolution diagram for the basic stats (minus the life stat) used in Minifig Melee:



Not sure if I would actually want to use this in the main game, or just use it in a free/lite/alternate version.

We'll see...

I was playing around with other potential themes and came up with a zombie/post-apoc idea:







This would need to add rules on guns, explosions, acid, etc, etc... but I think it would be a lot of fun.
