Oh Hai! Lords of Waterdeep #boardgame is now available on #Android

I've enjoyed the #tabletop version, and been a bit jealous that iOS had an app version, so now I don't have to be.

Hi #mastodon, do you know any relevant board game creator/framework?
By that I mean a piece of software that allows you to write game rules, so that one's favourite board game can be modelled and played.

I've done quite some searching, but couldn't yet find one that meets my requirements:
- #FreeSoftware
- multiplatform (web-based is okay)
- under active development (many projects lying around that haven't got updates in years, sadly)

Conquest of Nerath. Knockabout Risk-like #boardgame. Does a lot with few rules.

Played almost all of the GIPF games last night (save for Punct and Tamsk). Really love this series.

Completed my first _Tiny Epic Quest_. It's certainly got the biggest footprint of any of the Tiny Epics, thus delivering firmly on the epicness. Took us a couple turn to understand the flow of things, but by the end it was flowing pretty well. Messed up a rule around magic a little, that we didn't figure out until afterwards. Seemed to work well for two players.

Then I just gotta cut the price down, get some placeholder art (which I'm going to tap someone for who offered, gotta look back for that -- but I WILL take 'em up on it, my scratchsketches will not do the job well), and write up the rules explicitly.

But I'm on track. ^_^ I might be releasing a board game eventually! Neato torpedo. ^_^

It HAS occurred to me that ToT could make a workable "party game" video game too, possibly. We'll have to see. ^_^

Got in two games of _Terraforming Mars_ today! My initial enthusiasm for it is holding up, it's got interesting gameplay coupled with lots of evocative scientific detail #tabletop #boardgame mastodon.xyz/media/PigTa7gPU9c

*Sol: Last Days of a Star* blows the doors off when it comes to cool custom pieces! mastodon.xyz/media/atmviTrAJVK

Fort Sumter, an interesting new mini-CDG just went up on the GMT P500 <goo.gl/UVmLrF>. It looks to be heavily inspired by 13 Days <goo.gl/nnDzJo> which is not at all a bad thing, because 13 Days is an amazingly good game.

The difference I'm spotting so far is that there is now an endgame played with the cards tucked away during each round, rather than them just being hidden points.

#boardgame group met for small box Saturday: A Fake Artist Goes To New York, Coup and Sushi Go! Whoop.

May was a pretty awesome month for me... good #book sale numbers (for me), amazing feedback, lots of forward momentum with #boardgame design, and I've started #editing A Hero's Birth. June promises more of the same!

@zylophone I like teaching the game to children, but I couldn’t claim to be a challenge to anyone who really knows what they’re doing.

My favorite #boardgame is Pente.

My copy of the Dark Souls #boardgame arrived today. Looks pretty beautiful, starting to read the rules now.
