“I think the biggest challenge that we faced was trying to keep the game of Poker playable when we added the abilities to the cards.“
It's very easy to upset the balance of the game when you can do something as simple as pay 5 chips to destroy a card in another player’s hand. It throws the calculated odds of the game out the window, which is kinda the point.
TEXAS HOLDEM, DRAW POKER, VIKING POKER, BUSINESS & BACKERS.... IT'S ALL HERE!!!
WHAT IS “THE GLOBAL POKER LINK?
In a nut shell, its the place where anyone that has anything to do with the Poker Industry at all wants to be.
You could say that it is the facebook for Poker Players. I personally feel that its much more elegant than that.
It's not every day that you find a social network that rewards you for adding content. READ MORE
A LOOK INTO THE FUTURE
"The Sneak Peak"
ALIEN ENERGY BALL
This Board Game has it all! Aliens, Nostalgia, and a tacky name that we pulled straight out of the 60's science fiction era.
Don't let Alien Energy Ball fool you. It packs a game mechanic that is not only unique, but addicting as well.
You could almost think of it as Alien Mind Sports. The object of the game is to capture the mental energy balls that are created by your opponents! Sound easy?
Well with a Thought Generator, cards that evolve your brain, and game board tactics, this cut throat alien sports game will have you pulling your hair out!

PRINT & PLAY
Advantages and Disadvantages
If your not familiar with "Print & Play", maybe you should become familiar with it. Or maybe not?
As a game designer, there is probably no better way to get a mass slew of opinions for a game than by offering it to the printable medium.
With websites like DriveThruRPG.com and Print & Play Productions, getting your game out there is easy. This is the advantage of using this format of test play marketing.
The main disadvantage of this medium is that no one really wants to take the time to print out a game that uses a lot of expensive ink, paper, and preparation before they even get a chance to sit down and play it.
For Role playing games this medium seems more ideal because you are actually just printing out a book. These sites also offer "one off" runs of such games in a professional binding for a price which is usually pretty close to retail value of similar games on the mass market.
KUNG CHI and DARK CAVERNS are two of our titles that are examples of great Print & Play material if your willing to take the time to print them out, laminate the pages, and cut out the individual pieces.
For us it is a question of "Do we want to have it out there so people can at least check it out if they want, or do we just keep it to ourselves until we are ready to publish the material?"
Be sure to keep an eye out for
what we have planned on our FACEBOOK PAGE
