Cat Rescue Review from Board’s Eye View

Cat Rescue … “a deceptively simple fully co-operative family game that’s quick to play… it can be played and enjoyed by children but still has enough meat to hold the interest of seasoned gamers” – Board’s Eye View

Cat Rescue (Sunrise Tornado)Cat Rescue is the latest game from Ta-Te Wu and Sunrise Tornado. It's a deceptively simple…

Begin the 5th Major Revision of Little Red

Littel Red beta 5.1 game board

Littel Red beta 5.1 game board

Working on the 5th edition prototype for <Little Red Riding Hood: Full Moon Rising>. Just finished the new game boards and still need to work on new event card and item card designs. With so much things going on right now, probably won’t be able to playtest it until next year.

The main difference between the 4th and 5th edition is the event selection. The 4th edition is the only edition that has a dice. It is used for event selection and and it is now removed. In the 5th edition, events are drawn from an event deck. It is a small deck of 14 cards and reshuffled when the 3rd Full Moon event is resolved.

In the beginning of a turn, player can (1) play one of the events from the board, (2) draw a new event then play one of the events on the board. If Full Moon Attack is drawn, player must resolve the event. Or (3) play it blind when all three event slots are filled.

Council is a little different in 5th edition. Player can also choose to play Council event when it is available. When a Full Moon event is resolved, Council is opened and becomes available to any player. The difference is when it is played, it is closed again.

Also need to polish character abilities and few others.

Lot’s polishing to do and loving it.

The Battle of Red Cliffs – Take 3

In the past many days, Eric and I were struggling and trying to figure out another launch of Red Cliffs that would make sense to all of us and the game itself.

I think we do now.

During the process of downsizing the entire game, we figured out a way to replace the game board without affecting the strategy of the game and the rules. The new component is called “Score Card”, and now each game will come with seven of them. You may find more information on Take 3.

Besides the original packaging on Reload, we added a new Tuck Box Edition in Take 3. It comes in a smaller tuck box without score board and markers. Its retail price is $18, and we are Kickstarting  it for $15. Now Red Cliffs is more affordable and portable.

Btw, I forgot to add 15 “zero” cards in the component section on the Reload page. It is my bad, and it will be added on to Take 3.

As for Essen, unfortunately Red Cliffs is going to miss Essen Spiel 2012, but Essen Spiel 2013 pickup option is available for the friendly frequent Essen goers.

Finally, Take 3 is live now with a 15 day funding duration. During the last few days, we will demo Red Cliffs in Strategicon in Los Angeles. If you are around, please drop and say hi and let’s play The Battle of Red Cliffs and many other fun games.

Thank you for your awesomeness and hope to have you again on Take 3.
