Tiny Robots, Big Explosions

Gearing up for some serious game writing over the festive period, and I aim to finally get another (non-GtB) game published in spring/summer 2013 – this time it’s Tiny Robots and Big Explosions – working Title is ‘TiRoBEx’ – but will probably change to something far sillier knowing me >:)  It’s all about using 6mm robots on 40mm bases and blowing your opponent to kingdom come, along with most of the terrain.

Anyhoo, in January,  I’m gonna need some playtesters; so if you fancy doing a bit of ‘game-breaking’ for me, please get in contact ryanfurlong@projectgood.co.uk – I’ll probably need about 5-10 testers in the first stages so it’ll be first come first served; unless you’ve done some testing for me before (or have been nice to me at some point), in which case the answer is already; “Yes, i’ll email you the first draft in January, then send you dice and minis to use in the game”.

Peace out.

Good: the Olympics – Part 2

The shot put made for an interesting event in which you need to roll for consecutive inches that the shot covers, the roll getting harder by one each time. Becoming ever more tactical it was quickly worked out what amount of Good was needed to be put into the rolls to secure a 2+ requirement all the way to the 7″ mark, however 1 is always a failure, and 1 always comes up… However it would seem that the Kamino training regime works as Mark’s Clone trooper came out no top.

From the shot, onto the Pole Vault. A run up, then stick a pole in a hole then jump – the key to this event was to get close to the bar and then you could ‘vault’ the last few 1/16ths with an unmodified 11+ roll. Having a Good run up helped as this height was added to the vault. Here the successful vaulters form a line and ignore the failure that was the Aidan’s Ninja. Meanwhile, Optimus gets ready to go…

Here’s what happened:

You can just see Optimus at the side of the landing mat…

Tony’s Sandworm takes the run up (Must have the pole in it’s mouth…

And the roll for the ‘Vault’:

Yep, Tony wins again…

Next, and final event was the Javelin. Stand somewhere behind the line. Run towards the Line. Throw the Javelin before the line. Simple.

It wasn’t exactly rocket science, but somehow two of us managed to fluff a roll and hit someone else, causing severe Bad damage. But fortuantely no-one died from any horrific injures. And those same two also managed to fluff every other attempt… Billy on the other hand actually managed to clear the entire table and have his Javelin ended up somewhere in the middle of the village hall.

And here are the final results:

Project Good Website All Updated #Olympics

The website has been update with all the ‘Olympic-y’ tings on it – I’ve renamed it all to Athletic Edition, as I’ll be putting a message around in most places I can think of and don’t want to upset the Olympic People too much.

 

Main Site: http://www.projectgood.co.uk/

Downloads: http://www.projectgood.co.uk/ruleserrata.html

 

P.S. I’ve also updated the other downloads sections by adding the Quick Reference sheet and A selection of powers that you can download and print off for quick reference.

Future Plans

Right as I’ve found the time here’s a little preview of what’s coming up this year from Project Good (in no particular order):

Decent: The extension to the expansion is being written, looking at mass troop rules and powers atm. Will be looking for playtesters in July/August. Game to be released Chrimbo 2012

Stand-Alone Free downloads: We’re currently looking at the possibility of having special edition free downloads on the website; two that are in development are Good: the Football Game (ready for Euro 2012), and the Good: Olympics. The football one will most likely be a stand-alone, using the mechanics of GtB to get the ball in the goal. The Olympic one is still undecided whether it will be standalone or as an expansion, with just special Olympic powers and scenarios (much like the seasonal powers on the website/in NtE)

Nice Dice: The nice dice are on the way, and Decent ones will be around for the expansion. Unfortunately can’t fit ‘Rubbish’ on the dice, so probably have ‘Crap’, or ‘Not Good’ on the ‘alternative’ dice.

More shows: Hopefully get GtB to a few more shows, and run demo games all over the place – looking at Eastern Front Show in September atm.

New Games: Project 3013 (our Tiny Robot, Big Guns game), Good: the RPG, and ElanKami (A non-dice Skirmish game), and another highly top secret project are in development.

Hopefully that’s whet your appetite…

We’re going to the Games Expo – Update

Well, everything is here – I just need to make it ready all for the show – i.e. putting the bumper pack together in their BRAND NEW packaging! We’ll also be giving away prizes like T-Shirts, Mugs, Limited Edition ‘Bad, but in a Good Way‘ Dice, Giant Fridge Magnets and probably some other freebie stuff – there’ll be Goodlden tickets in random the bumper packs which will win you a prize! Now to choose which miniatures/things to use as the choices for the demo games… More blogging and tweeting on the way soon 🙂 Promise.
