Re: NESTORGAMES newsletter - LAOCOON published!
Nice lateral thinking, Alison! I replied in the theme-seeking discussion thread, so we don't spam the press release thread.

Leprechauns running back and forth on a rainbow (7 spaces = ROYGBIV)

Robin Hood splitting the arrow (the dice 'adjust your aim' and you score if you exactly hit an existing 'arrow')

Same-sex love triangle (three people chasing one another around the board, never happy with the partner who's already in your space, you want to meet the other one)

Eclipse (the runners are sun/moon/earth, highest scores come from getting all three 'lined up' in one space)

Biorhythms (physical / emotional / intellectual - sync them up for points - yes I know these aren't real)


I was going to say Dogfight. maneuver planes to the same altitude to score hits.

But I heart the Love Triangle idea! You could just use hearts as your movers and avoid any same sex issues that some folks may have. And, if you can manage a "menage a trois" you score big! shake

On a less risque note, the Eclipse idea is very cool.

I had a look to the rules and found Quorsum more interesting (didn't know any of them), have you played both games?

Yep. Not a bad game, but MadCap fits easier on the format and also I was looking for another game in the line of Way of the Dragon.

I've been wanting to release Chase for a long time. But it's been impossible to contact the designer Tom Kruszewski. If any of you can help me with this it would be awesome. Thanks!

Any interest in writing an AI for Cubeo? I would love to be able to play it as an app on my phone if it had a descent AI!

Sure, if I have permission from the designer. Mobile play is a long way down my TODO list though - I'd almost certainly have to rewrite the GUI.

Re: NESTORGAMES newsletter - 3-player expansion for Knight Line + Promotional tile!
Well, it's taking aeons for the admins to aprove the entry for the 3-player Expansion for Knight Line, so I'm uploading the images to my gallery directly and here they are

Now can now purchase the 3-player expansion (20 red tiles). Email me for this. Also you will receive the Promotional Tile (grey) if you get the expansion, as supplies last. There are only 10 grey tiles and I won't print more in the future.

Re: NESTORGAMES newsletter - FLINK DELUXE
Flink Deluxe published

https://www.nestorgames.com/flinkdeluxe_detail.html

A board game for 2 players by yours trully.

Flink (F + link) is a connection game that uses the F pentomino. Players alternate turns placing one of their pieces according to some simple rules, each trying to connect the two sides of the board of her colour; however, the path can travel along the exposed top or any exposed side of a tile. Flink is the first nestorgame that uses 3D-printed pieces.

Components: two boards (square and diamond) made of 5mm thick engraved and laser-cut acrylic (21,5 cm side), 8 board-perimeter pieces (3D printed) that are inserted on the board, 40 'F' pieces (20 black, 20 grey; 3D printed), 45x33x5 cm paperstock box, 2 white bags for the pieces. The base cube for the pieces is 15 mm side, so the maximum lenght of the pieces is 4,5 cm.

Expansion: although not needed, additionally you can purchase an extra set of pieces so that two games can be played at the same time, one on each board, by 4 people.

Discount: if you've already purchased the basic edition in the past, email me and I'll offer you a discount on the Deluxe Edition.

Re: NESTORGAMES newsletter - FLINK DELUXE
Here are the rules for MADCAP art submission:

- Download the Madcap rules and board concept here: https://nestorgames.com/docs/madcap.zip

- Illustrate the board for the game as requested in the concept. The art MUST NOT be final, so we can fine tune the details. I don't want you to work on it more than needed until a winner is chosen.

- Submit the art in jpg or png. No full-res needed yet.

- Board size is 20x28,7 cm. 300 dpi.

- I will choose a winner (with feedback from the designers of the game). If we reach an agreement, his/her art will be featured on the game board, credit will be given and he/she will receive 50 EUR as payment (yes, Nestorgames is THAT small).

- Dealine is March 31.

- You can ask your questions here.

Thank you
