Tien Zi Que (TZQ) is an entertaining pocket MahJong for two. It uses a unique selection of MahJong cards, and each card has an added color code (blue, green, red, white or black) for special scoring. With exceptional game play, TZQ brings you more fun and strategy than the traditional MahJong. All you need is 5 cards on hand and little or no MahJong knowledge to play.

After creating a Set, the winning player chooses to keep one of the cards for end of the Round scoring. When one player completes five Sets, he calls MahJong and wins the Round immediately. He then uses the one card from each Set to score. Players’ points are accumulated after every winning round; the game is played to 4 rounds.

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.
