A new dueling game where each player controls a fighter, with a hand full of cards for their attacks. They can move & counter each other, & form combos, being careful not to tire themselves out.
Ancient Arts is a game that simulates a two person fight in a ring. Kenpo Masters is the first set of cards for the game, representing the fighting style of Jean-Guy Angell Kenpo. Each player takes a deck of cards, and places their fighter card in the ring. The cards represent various martial arts techniques and movements, allowing the fighters to move around the ring, and score points on each other. Whether a move is worth any points, and how many it is worth, depends on the cards played, the fighters’ relative positions, and how they’ve moved.
On each player’s turn they play a card, move their fighter in a way that card allows, possibly play additional cards as a combo, and resolve the cards that their opponent played on the previous turn, scoring whatever points they give. Players may “rest” by skipping their turn to draw new cards, and the first player to 20 points wins the game.
Players place tokens in a changing maze, hiding treasures for themselves, & bluffing opponents into picking up traps. Both look the same, so you need to be crafty, & read your opponents' plays.
A board game played on a set of random tiles, forming a labyrinth. Up to four players individually change the labyrinth, move through it, pick up hidden treasures or traps, then get to place new treasures or traps elsewhere. The treasure and trap tokens are placed face down, and all look the same, so it is crucial to place them in misleading ways. Some of these will score you points, some will lose them, some will have other good or ill effects. The effects of a placed token are not revealed until a player picks it up from the board. At the end of the game, the player with the most treasure points wins. There will be multiple copies of the game, to accommodate simultaneous sessions.
