It's been a few months since my last update, but the time has not been wasted. I took a few weeks away from game design to enjoy some real life events. But my brain is never happy unless it's sorting out strange problems late at night when I know I should be sleeping. In the past month Mars was discovered. Although it doesn't have a prototype yet it does have some detailed rules and game play designs. I've sketched some designs of how it will look and hope to start putting those to paper later this month. It's also my first game design that uses an actual board! Which is a strange thing to say when designing board games.
I'm also gearing up to test Earth for the first time this week. So far most of it's evolution has been driven by my one man play testing/scowling. I think it's finally time to present it to the masses (probably just to other guys, but still) and see if this is, in fact, a game.
