What started as a passing thought - wouldn't it be cool to have a totally made-up "space casino" game for gamblers in my sleazy scifi RPG Alpha Blue - has now become a reality.
It's called Q'uay-Q'uar; translated, it means "purple and yellow" in the Q'tari language. Some play for fun, others for cold hard credits, and for a rare few... it's the difference between life and death.
Not totally happy with how it played (or looked) in the prototype stage, I asked +MonkeyBlood Design (Glynn Seal) to create an awesome looking board, and then I made up the rules to go with what he put in front of me. It was a bit of a challenge, but I'm very pleased with how it turned out.
Q'uay-Q'uar will be available with the upcoming Alpha Blue scenario High Stakes Q'uay-Q'uar landing June 1st.
Below is a video of my eldest daughter and I playing a quick game. We played quite a bit over the last couple days - my next eldest daughter, as well. There's a surprising amount of latitude for such a simplistic diversion.
Thanks for reading and watching,
