Stranglehold Update

I recently developed a great system for naming moves in Stranglehold.

The game is almost done, believe it or not... I just need to type it.

I have tag team matches and special match types to design, but the general flow of the game works... and CAGE matches generate a lot of points, quickly.

Looking forward to another round of playtest.

Stranglehold Playtest, Round 2

The first two playtests of Stranglehold were done with Aaron and Josh G., at which point we realized this is most likely a FOUR player game, although THREE is doable. Last night, I played with Colin, Judson, and Mark (Josh B was absent) and everyone had a great time.

The random tables seemed to really capture the game play for everyone. So I certainly need more of those. And midstream we realized that TWO cards need to be flipped at once, rather than ONE at a time, for TURNS.

And I know all of this sounds obscure to you because you don't know much about the game yet, but I promise you will.

Anyway. We had a great playtest and I'll report more when I can.
