Boardgame inspired by Guns of Icarus
« on: January 14, 2019, 11:08:19 am »
Hello community

I'm currently designing my very own first boardgame, and it's about GoI.
I was basically searching for a boardgame that would have this wonderful team interraction between players having a specific role in a team, with different gameplays, and, after few research... I found out there are none

so I began thinking, then writing rules...

I'm currently on my version 0.8 of rules, and I'll playtest my first prototype on Friday.

for Boardgames afficionados, the game is a kind of a mix between roborally and captain sonar. a captain, a gunner and 2 mechanics on the board, zones on the ship to handle, a hex map to move the ships. 2 phases per round: plannification (1min to plan 4 to 7 actions for a full crew), then execution.
The game would be from 6 to 16 players (3-4 players per ship, 2-4 ships)

Here are some pictures of the prototype so far











PS: The game is currently made by a fan, as a prototype. IF I go to try to officially edit it, I'll ask Muse to negociate the IP, otherwise, the art will be different... I just want to say I do not intend to steal anything from Muse ;-)

PS for Muse Game: If you're eager to edit this boardgame, I'm willing to have the IP freely :p. Seriously, If you're interrested, please contact me ;-) I can give you the rules I've written so far

I'd say no, but I'm not sure... Maybe

I don't know what a doonz is, and the search field didn't help me :-)

"doonz" aka "Doons", properly spelled "Dunes" refers to the map "Battle on the Dunes".


Anyway, awesome!
You should join the official GOI discord (discord.gg/gunsoficarus) to reach out to more people ;)

Aaah dunes

Right now, the map is pretty empty and with sand color :p
And I'll 3d print obstacles and difficult terrain in the future

So there will be dunes

Good idea for discord

Looks interesting. Good luck with the play testing. Muse is a super nice company, but they don't check these forums that often. You may want to email feedback@musegames.com if you want to get their attention quickly.

They support a GoI based visual novel aswell, I'm sure they'll be happy to feature you on Discord, Facebook, Twitter, ingame and invite you to the fireside chat on Twitch once you're not in pre-alpha anymore
cool boardgame:
