i'm also intrigued by the high "density" of WS. cards serve multiple functions in the game, from being the card type/text on them to being damage counters to being "currency" or "ammo" for doing things to adding elements of chance on both offense and defense. it's really neat.

This is how you win.
Discard nonsense and hope the 779x will make some points in play.
Getting the 8 as a starter was key to my strategy. Key. Of course I plan around a randomly chosen card. Otherwise, I was doomed.
(Also key? Hoping the opponent didn’t win with their first count.)
Both #cardGames work by constraining a single musical parameter at a time. T3 avoids referring to pitch, Tc embraces.
One (T3) is played with a traditional deck (not full), another is an original set of cards.
Only Textmusic has rules properly specified for full performance. Tonic has suggestions for practicing.
Which one stays to be compared in the next round?
Some people change their card decks when the cards grow too wrinkled, or too bent, or too torn. We change our decks when they grow too snarky.
i've been playing "beecarbonize" for a few runs, and it's really fun and has a lot of charm. recommended for fans of "cultist simulator" (rip) and "stacklands." free to play, no strings.

Anybody have any board / card / dice / party game recommendations for Black Friday sales?
Other games I enjoy for context
-Betrayal at house on the hill
-That’s Pretty Clever
I've not collected (or played) #Pokemon in a long long time. My partner on the other hand is a child living in the body of a bigger child, and all too often comes home with a booster pack to rip open.
Now I know there are daft Pokémon based on chandeliers or ice cream or the alphabet, but this... this is a Cheesestring. Not 'like' a Cheesestring, 'is' a Cheesestring.
This has to be a Poképarody Booster pack or something. Wouldn't make my bench, that's for sure.
Justin works through the three games in the latest collection of Steven Rhodes productions from Cryptozoic Entertainment. Find out what he thinks in his review!
... So you work your way through the deck again and again trying to carefully rearrange cards until everything is in place to trigger the win condition. Or until you overlook something bad and lose.
So... Interesting points: you don't need a table, you have all cards in hand, it's all about rearranging cards within your deck. Negative point: it's really hard to keep track of how many stars I've collected because so many of them depend on proximity to other cards, etc. #galdorsgrip #cardgames
Spent the evening printing cards for Galdor's Grip, then played two games. It's certainly interesting! You play with all 18 cards in hand, all face down. Each round you turn the top one over (if face down), resolve the text, look at the number in the circle (you can choose to use the number on the next card instead if you want to) and move that many cards from the top of the deck to the back. You can put the top card anywhere within that group of cards... #cardgames #printandplay #galdorsgrip
I still (occasionally) play Yu-Gi-Oh online via the Duel Links and Master Duel apps. I'll download them and binge for a bit and then delete them after I get my ass beat too many times by XYZs and Links. I wish there were matchmaking playlists just for the older stuff.

New Expansion Announcement 'Hidden Dagger' for Warhammer The Horus Heresy: Legions
Hidden Dagger brings a trove of over 150 new cards, spotlighting three traitor legions: the vicious Night Lords, the ruthless Iron Warriors, and the duplicitous Alpha Legion.
Hadn't played BATTLE of TAROT in a while, but while my twin brother was in town, I taught him the game and we got a few games in. Still a lot of fun! Though... I may be a bit biased ;)
It's free by the way! Get a copy of the rules here, grab your own tarot deck, and play it with a friend, enemy, lover, comrade, or stranger.
More from South #Leith, among accusations of #witchcraft and arguing over #schools: “28 December 1643 - Isobell Robertsone being called (for haveing four men playing at cards in hir house in tyme of divin service) compeared and was ordained to pay 12s and was admonishit no to doe the like.” #Edinburgh #ScottishHistory #17thCentury #SeventeenthCentury #kirkSession #CardGames #GamingHistory
I thought I'd try Disney Lorcana so bought 2 starter decks to try it out.
From what I've seen so far I prefer the way resources are handled over Magic and Pokemon and it seems that deck building can be as simple as “I'll make a deck of princesses” or some other idea (which is kind of how we treated Magic in the 90s).
It seems well designed. We'll have to see how long it takes for unintended interactions and power creep to set in though.
Usually felt that the Ironclad in #SlayTheSpire was the least powerful of the main three for beating runs (potentially due to the Awakened feeling like a pretty nasty final boss), but this run with him felt like probably one of the stronger builds I've got in the #game. Lots of auto-increasing strength and shields, made slog fights feel quite good.
Afternoon Play board games, December 2023
Just saw that you created some way to play chess in the #fediverse!
I wonder if you could be interested in thinking about how to implement #cardGames.
In particular #Doppelkopf, a #cards #game germans play and I guess perhaps you have a version of that game in the Netherlands too.
I'd love to see it work on #friendica as an addon. Maybe somehow together with the quick comment addon?
I suppose this is the time to point out that Siva Afi: The Fireknife Dance of Samoa makes a great gift for your most flammable loved ones. It's a pretty safe bet that your tabletop gamer relative doesn't already have it.
I've just transferred my account over from my self-hosted instance, so I guess now would be a good time for a re #introduction: Hello to everyone I already knew, and to everyone to whom I'm new!
I'm a tech nerd from the UK, living in London. You'll generally find me tinkering with #Python, my #HomeLab, with #HomeAssistant or with something random, often because I'm #writing a how-to on my #Ghost site.
🎲 On profite ensuite d’une table vide pour s’initier au #jeu de plateau Tokaido Duo. Les mécaniques des trois personnages qu’on incarne et qu’on déplace sur l’île de Shikoku sont assez différentes et les intégrer simultanément demande un petit temps d’adaptation mais je pense qu’une fois maitrisé ça doit dérouler. #boardgames #cardgames #tokaidoduo #games #boardgame #utopiales #utopiales2023 #mesutos2023
🎲 C’est reparti et on profite de la fréquentation raisonnable du matin pour investir la zone #jeux des #utopiales et tester Forêt Mixte, jeu de cartes de construction d’écosystèmes forestiers, où je retrouve des mécaniques qui me rappelle #Wingspan. C’est plutôt moins rigoureux, et plus centré sur les combos donc forcément pas optimal quand on ne connaît pas les cartes à l’avance, mais plutôt sympathique. #utopiales2023 #mesutos2023 #boardgames #cardgames #games #ecologie #forestshuffle
I've heard that youtube creators for #BoardGames and #CardGames say the youtube algorithm tells them very few women <4%? watch their channels. BUT. Because I mainly watch board game & card game & video game content on youtube, it classifies me as a man and offers lots of beard-shaving ads, even though I have never told youtube my gender (I'm not a man). So the algorithm and stereotyping of these hobbies is self-perpetuating #Youtube
I think I've probably posted about Dungeon Cards (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.The717pixels.DungeonCards) on here before, a card flipping game (on Android, maybe on iPhone too?)
The same folks also make Card Fall (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.The717pixels.cardFall), which is similar, but..different. Still wild. Both require kind of interesting strategic thinking, and they both have that same kind of cute, stylized look.
Just killing cute little monsters on your phone and keeping your character alive as long as possible. 🤣
This is hilarious! The lackluster #SFGiants season is partially blamed on #Pusoy, a Filipino card game similar to Poker. (Other news reports are saying the culprit is Pusoy Dos, which is a completely different game.) ♠️♥️♣️♦️
“...a near-zealotry to Pusoy, a Filipino card game that Joc Pederson and some other Giants players appear to find more compelling than studying the night’s opposing starting pitcher.”
#QuestionOfTheDay: what's your CCG/TCG, TTRPG, or board games hot take? Like an actually scorching hot take that you actually believe and would cause controversy.
*As an example of the kinds of takes i mean you can check out the responses to the previous Question of the Day where I asked for anime, manga, and video game hot takes: https://urusai.social/@ami_angelwings/111156320038982619

No Thanks! is an excellent card game and $10 is a great price for it.
We play it all the time and have used it to introduce many new people to more modern games at public gaming events that our community game group has run.
I‘m an environmental #physicist by training, but after three years of parental leave I started a new job as a consulting software #developer. I work(ed) with a lot of different technologies: #swiftlang, #java, #csharp, #cplusplus, #angular, #perl, … My preferred computing platform is the #Mac.
Mini decks are available for each of the 2 playing card decks I’m currently funding on Kickstarter. I love these little creatures, especially the teeny ones. 💚 (links in bio)
This is a fun game you can play to practice your knowledge of basic #logicGates. There is a bit of strategy involved, but it doesn't lend an overwhelming advantage to whoever employs it, so anyone can win the games.
Which is better?
1. Until your next turn, only creatures with 3+ power may block.
2. Only creatures with 3+ power may block until your next turn.
I think folk were correct that the number mentioned needs to qualify for the next bit. But what if I swap the direction?
One of my favorite #cardGames is #Machiavelli, similar to #Rummy but where the players have the opportunity to rearrange all played groups and runs as they please to make it easier to add their cards (as long as at the end of the play everything on the table is valid).
I haven't posted this in awhile, but if you like games and birds and math, I made a birb math deck - files are here:
If you know of a better way to print these - let me know or go for it.
As an #introduction, I do not understand this fediverse thing yet. I miss the fun I had online when I was young, but everyone misses their youth.
I feel that the original potential of the internet was misplaced and it is up to us to keep tossing the cushions until we can find where we left it.

My wife @sabcatsilver, a psychology student, created a card game that helps therapists (and people) talk about grief, end of life care, and perspectives on life.
I am soooooo proud of her!! Currently it’s a prototype for class, but she may publish it in the future. Thanks to folks who helped on Mastodon! We got it printed on GameCrafter
Does anyone have tips on how I can print a first run of a card game?
1. Do I use something like printer studio
2. I have access to a very large format printer. The kind that takes up half a room. I can color print on one sheet for $13. Should I just lay out all the cards on one large page and print it that way, and cut myself, then laminate?
The goal is to have this game be semi-playable in a classroom setting. Maybe 80 cards total.

Hi, I’m Ken, I’ve been on the Fediverse for a couple of weeks now. It seemed silly to introduce myself to nobody when I first started this instance, although I did fill in my bio. I’m a #writer from England who joined the Fediverse to publicise my work and maybe try to #getfedihired. I’m still feeling my way around the social aspects of this though, I don’t just want to use this as an advertising platform.
Looking back over my statuses for the first fortnight, so far I’ve mostly boosted things I found funny or beautiful. I replied to a few other posts including some responses to #SillyCuratorPrompts and #DesignChallenge – two drawings and a silly poem. And early on I posted another poem, largely to push past the anxiety I felt about the whole social media thing. The last thing I put up was some photos of spring flowers.
I already have a blog at https://kenhutton.uk or https://kenhutton.uk/atom for your rss/atom reader. You can find more information about my book ‘Social card games’ there if you’re interested and I plan to post some stories and poems there soon, perhaps some essays too. No promises about when though, as I’m job hunting right now and not putting pressure on myself to do too much else.
So here's a short #introduction:
I'm a #Finnish man living in #Lahti city.
I'm into #games, #cats and I love to photograph nature (with my phone, so I'm not a professional by any means).
I love watery environments like lakes, rivers and ponds.
Besides #videogames I also enjoy #boardgames and #cardgames although I rarely have company to play with. It's more of a hobby (collecting them).
I also work in IT.
I relax with #ASMR and I can't get enough of #coffee.
That's all for now. In a nutshell.
Potluck is a semi-universal card deck that fits into a pocket and plays dozens of games.
I'm writing a 3-part blog series of the design and development process of Potluck.
