I’m all over the place lately. Working on a short story again after tinkering with my books.
Today I brought out the half-finished game I made recently. I’m pretty excited about it, and actually want to take a shot at getting it published. It’s been through several playtests, with various groups of various sizes. It’s been a fun challenge to balance it and try and get it to a place that’s good enough to take to a developer.
“Tinker, Tailor” is the working title, though I won’t be crushed if I have to change it to “Tinker, Taker”; it is a game about spys, and finding moles within your agency (see where the name might run into some problems?).
It was giving me some issues with balancing the different agents (each player has a different agent character, with unique abilities), but I think I’ve got it now.
Now just to re-print the latest edition and playtest it with more people!
My workbook and the pieces I’m working on:
Also this week, I bottled a few brewing projects I’ve been waiting on. My Welches’ Red Wine turned out rather heinously, but it might make an OK sangria. Also, my Pumpkin Pie wine, which popped its corks while we were on our honeymoon, has stabilized, and I managed to salvage 14 bottles out of the batch.
Let’s see, what else, what else. Oh! My Auntie Pam gave us awesome wild rice as a wedding present. I like taking pictures of food; this one turned out neat.
Well, that’s all for now folks. I’ll be hard at work on my latest short story, for a horror anthology that features classical music. Chopin’s
Raindrop Blooddrop Sonata, anyone?
Summer’s here, and it’s nice to see the sun while I write. 🙂
Thanks for reading.
