I’ve been so busy withFootrub (which is nearly finished, by the way!) That I haven’t been working on Bif Borf. I’ve been trying to ween myself off of dreaming about that game too much; if I think too hard about it, I’ll think about stuff I want to add, and then the game will just never get done, so I’ve been letting myself dream up maybe-in-a-bit projects that might be a nice palate cleanser down the road.
I gave in and worked on one for a few hours, and now it’s another damn project.
Have you ever loved something so much that you threw it out and made a new one five times? And then because the sight of it made you sick you burned it all, made something totally different, and then named that new thing after the old, dead thing?
Well, anyways, I finally finished a draft of Footrub that I’m proud of!
Walrus County is a work-in-progress tabletop role playing game. It’s designed to have rules that are quick to pick up, with fast moving stories for groups that can’t meet very often. The rules favour debate and creativity over rules-lawyering and number-crunching. It also encourages experimentation, and playing multiple characters.
