Final Day of the Early Adopters Sale

Welcome to Day 5 of our Early Adopter’s Sale. It’s the last day of the sale. In this video I simply explain the game and the cards a bit more and talk about the different components of the game. I also introduce everyone to the downloadable instructions to Bludgeon, the game we invented in order to playtest The Queen’s Assassin.

Family Games night is not so friendly anymore.

You are the King of a massive kingdom, you hold land, wealth and power. As you have gained your land, wealth and power you have also acquired a few enemies who are seeking to destroy you.

The Warring Kingdoms have gathered for a final battle… Who will be left standing and who will be found buried in the graveyard.

The Queen’s Assassin is a card game where you conquer rival kingdoms using your methods of conquest, Diplomacy, Torture and Revenge. It’s a fun, winner takes all, kind of game where alliances are formed and broken. Friends are blindsided and enemies sometimes keep you alive for their own enjoyment.

It’s fun but be warned, if suddenly you find yourself alone in the King’s Reach you better hope you find some Armour, quickly.

Simple instructions. Balanced Game mechanics. Quick turn based system.

Each turn you can
– perform 1 action OR Discard up to all of your cards and replace them.
– The defender responds by playing cards against your cards
– Both of you both pick up a card to replace any you have used and the next player takes his turn.
– It’s Really that simple.

How do you win?
Simple. Survive.
Last man standing wins the game.

This is how it all began

old code.001

Over the Christmas break I was cleaning out the storage room in our basement and came across a box of my old programming books. Inside the box was a binder with some of my app ideas, and some old code.

If you are unfamiliar with my app story you can read more here. Reality is, I love apple products and I love my iPhone. When the app store started I really wanted to create an app. I didn’t have the money to start a business or hire a programmer, and I certainly had no idea how to program anything. But, I was determined to get an app on the app store.

So, I bought a book on building apps. I realized that somewhere down the line that book was not going to help me because it was too complex. So I bought another, and another, until I understood what I needed to build an app. I needed to display a question from a set of random questions on the screen.

IMG_0004Unfortunately, I realized very quickly that I would need to code in order to accomplish this very simple task. Here is my first shot at building code, I checked this from three different books and all three seemed to agree that this method might achieve what I wanted to do. What a gong show. So I tried it out, I got error after error but finally my words showed up on the screen like I wanted them to.

Then, I needed to build a random set of questions that would appear whenever the user clicked the screen. Here is a portion of that preliminary code. IMG_0002

For those of you who actually are programmers this code will most likely seem rudimentary and broken but this is what I gleaned from reading the manuals and textbooks. Obviously this code went through a few iterations as well before it actually worked.

Here is one more page of code that I found in that binder. This code did not work at all and was never IMG_0003used in the final app but it’s exciting to me to see what I was attempting to do when moving from knowing nothing about code to actually building my own line of conversation starter apps.

Now, I am reading some more tutorial books focussed on learning a new programming language, Swift. Hopefully soon I will be able to incorporate what I am learning in my current apps and hopefully build some brand new apps that I have been dreaming about for a very long time.

As always, thanks for the downloads and have a great day.
