Perspective is Out to Backers with New Ways to Play!

It’s been so exciting watching people respond to getting their copies of Perspective! I have really enjoyed the tweets, posts and messages people have been sending as they are breaking open their games. There’s been a variety of posts of pictures and praises, and it’s truly excited to see that so many people are enjoying my design! Above is the pile of copies I had the joy to sign for backers. I am truly honored by all of the support from backers, friends and family!

NEW MODES!
– 4 player without partners
– 5 player
– 6 player partners

During the KS campaign, one backer (Rachad) had asked if we could play with more players if you had 2 copies of Perspective. Because of this, I have been working around and have found good ways to do this. For those of you who got the 3 pack, try these out and let me know if you think of ways to improve the larger player count ways to play. I’ll list the cards you need to add in order to play each mode.

4 player without partners:

Cards to add: (6 cards total)
Red/Blue, Red/Yellow, Red/Green, Blue/Yellow, Blue/ Green, Yellow/Green.

Set up goes as pictured, and the game plays identical to the 2 player game. The only difference is that the center card belongs to both sets of cards in the center. All 5 cards count as part of a single shared hand.

ADVANCED: simply remove the goal cards and each player’s goal is determined by the 3 card hand parallel to them.

5 player:

Cards to add: (10 cards total)
Red/Red, Blue/Blue, Yellow/Yellow, Green/Green, Red/Blue, Red/Yellow, Red/Green, Blue/Yellow, Blue/ Green, Yellow/Green.

Set up is as shown above with each player sitting at the base of one of the cards, like the 3 player game. Each player will have a goal card in front of them (not pictured). If the game feels to short, you may want to play for 2nd or 3rd place.

ADVANCED: Each player’s goal will be determined by the 3 cards in front of them. From the perspective of the picture the goal would be Blue, Red, Yellow. OR whatever is on the bottom side of those 3 cards.

6 player with partners:

Cards to add: (10 cards total)
Red/Red, Blue/Blue, Yellow/Yellow, Green/Green, Red/Blue, Red/Yellow, Red/Green, Blue/Yellow, Blue/ Green, Yellow/Green.

I don’t have an image for this one, but setup will be like the normal 4 player partner game, but with 6 players. Distribute the 6 goal cards from one set. There will be 2 teams of 3 partners. Be sure to have people sit so that players on opposing teams sit next to each other, so that the teams will alternate turns. Play continues until one team has had all 3 players claim their goal.

(note: you could play this with 3 teams of 2 as well, feel free to decide that based on your group.)

Please try these modes out and let me know what you think about them! I would love to hear your feedback. I’m excited to watch this game grow. As always, reach out to me on twitter or facebook!

You guys are great! I’m glad you love Perspective!

Perspective: Where it came from.

Perspective: Where it came from.

One of the reasons I enjoy designing board games is because I get to make all the rules, and that means that there are no rules. This is part of the reason why it’s so rewarding when people react to a game and say “that’s really cool, how did you come up with it?” Because I had no constraints in designing it, each of my games truly is an extent of my mind.  That being said it isn’t unusual for people to want to hear the process, so here it is:

Perspective: Getting Published!

2015.04.26_Perspective_0001
In September 2010 I had a month being unemployed. To fend off idleness I started making a board game and have hardly gone a week without working on a game project since. Today, 4 years and 7 game designs later… I signed my first contract with a game publisher! Minion Games has agreed to publish Perspective!
