Monopoly Deal – 54 Card Fan Expansion

June 25, 2017 hydroxy

Its something a bit different I know but its something I’ve always wanted to make. If you haven’t tried Monopoly Deal I’d suggest giving it a go, its only about £7 on Amazon right now and is a great little party game.

I used a small expansion that I found on BoardGameGeek’s forums as the foundation for my expansion, the initial authors had taken it from v1 to v2 and there were some really good ideas there. I added my own ideas, printed everything out, got it shipped and playtested with friends, this was v3, it was good but there were some big imbalances caused by the new cards. After returning to the drawing board I’ve created v4, some of the cards are displayed below:

I do not want to make any profit out of this, so I’m researching around for the best prices around for a high enough quality reproduction that’ll allow this deck to be seamlessly mixed in with the normal deck. I’ll update here in the future when I’ve got that arranged.

Here is a link for the player card image files for anyone who wants to print them off themselves

I’ve uploaded two versions to MakePlayingCards.com at this link.

  • The version titled “MDE Light” has a lesser quality card material and a small cardboard tuck box as a container.
  • The version titled “MDE” features higher quality card material and a plastic hinged card container; however costs are higher.

Board games can be as entertaining as video games, I think they’re making a long overdue resurgence recently, hopefully it continues.

After a busy Xmas and a brief bout of sickness, I’ve unrustled my jimmies and I’m back again ready to create. Watch this space, hopefully in the next few weeks I shall emerge with an improved version of Legend of Heli.

Onwards and Upwards

New game in the works. Initially this started as a plant growing simulator for a game jam believe it or not, but my tweaking gradually changed it into a little fun helicopter flying game. As is tradition I’ve kind of temporarily left my current main project to start some work on yet another mini game but I do hope to get back to the main project soon.

This is Legend of Heli. You can download a demo version of it here.

The aim is to keep going up and avoid crashing into any of the bots pretty much.

There’s a few bugs such as minor collision detection but overall its fairly stable.

The helicopter can slide across the ground safely enough, however if the propeller touches the walls or ceiling the helicopter can spin out of control slightly.

I aim to get procedural generation in this game in the near future

Enjoy!

EDIT: Got my first ever video review! Check it out below.

Death Defying

Here’s a short game called “Death’s Tomb”, I made it along with another small one perseon development team Relic Studios. It was made for Reddit’s 9th gm48 contest over two days. We didn’t win but was fun to work on it though.
