If you are a fan of Shaken, Not Poisoned, and don’t feel like cutting and pasting 50 cards out, you’re in luck! I’ve just put a “Game Crafter” version of the game out! That way, you can save your paper, ink and glue, and your hands won’t get scissor cramps!
You can find the printed version of the game here!
If you voted in my last free game voting, you’ll be excited to see that Shaken, Not Poisoned is now free to download as a print and play!
Click here to download the PDF files! <- Please let me know if there are any issues, I’m using dropbox, and everything should be ok, but sometimes Chrome has false positives for dropbox downloads. There’s only PDFs inside the zipfile.
I feel like it’s a very easy game to pick up and learn, and after you’ve learnt how to play, you get to the real meat of the game, figuring out what your friends and trying to do and beat them. The game should only last 1-3 minutes per round, so a game could finish in 10 minutes, so it should be nice and snappy.
Major changes from the last version of the game include:
- Any player can decide to stop the round when they want and have the last turn of the round.
- You can also decide to peek at your dance partner’s cards, to see what they are trying to do.
There might be a few tweaks as people start playing the game and giving me feedback, but this is basically how the game will be. If you don’t feel like printing and cutting out about 54 cards, I will be creating a page on “The Game Crafter” were you can order the game and get it sent to you, for a reasonable fee. There will be some extensive play testing before that game goes on sale, since I want to make sure the game is quality before asking for money for it.
G’Day there you,
It’s been quite some time since the last post, since there’s been a lot going on with Regeria Hope since the release. It’s been interesting to see the response, which was very positive. I’ve been amazed by the generosity of people that are willing to donate to a free game.
So, things that happened last month:
My goals for January are:
- Get new music, new backgrounds, a new gui, the new rebuttal gamplay set up, and the “Defence Prep” and “Witness Defence” gameplay sections put into the new version of Regeria Hope: Episode One.
- Finish the Shaken, Not Poisoned artwork, and put a free to play version of it up, along with a version you can buy on The Game Crafters Web Store if you aren’t into cutting and pasting lots of cards..
- Get the tile art finished for After the Crash. Hopefully I can finish the rest in February.
So that was my month, hopefully you had a happy holidays, and an exciting new year. You get all the presents you wanted?
Here’s the last of the spies you can play as. It’s the other half of the Highly Unlikely Mission Personnel organization. She is less into using disguises, but uses her feminine wiles to trap her target. It’s Paprika Parker!
Pretty happy with the way this one turned out. Blond hair is kind of hard to do with the way I’m doing these cards, but it turned out well, along with the ring on her finger and her cigarette. She’s only smoking because she’s a spy with a death-wish, so kids at home – Don’t smoke, don’t drink, and winners don’t do drugs!
Hope you like it, looking forward to any comments below.
This is probably going to be one of the last posts on the design of the “Shaken, Not Poisoned” cards before the game is freely available for people to print and play. It’s how the protect and poison cards look. Here’s how the front and back of the protect cards look:
I’ve made the drinks on the backs of the cards different colors so that it’s easier to put the decks together, and so that keen eyed players might be able to tell what a player is thinking when moving their spies around. If a player is looking at a protect card, they might be moving towards someone they want to protect. I’ve decided the black drinks would be for protect, and red would be the poison drinks. Here’s how the poison cards look:
I wanted the cards to be different, but not too different. I could always have the background in the poison cards be red, but I don’t think people would want to burn a whole color ink cartridge to play my game. Hopefully the drink color changes should be enough to show the different decks.
You’re a beaut bloke or sheila to have read all this, hope to see a comment from you below, and have a good one!
This post is the last one about the rules before “Shaken, Not Poisoned” is thrown out into the wild to see how other people like it. It’s the rule cards, which thankfully are small enough to fit on one card. It’s a very dry topic, but it’s great to see the rules be simple enough to fit on a two sided card.
I’m pretty sure all the rules are on there. Hopefully they make enough sense for anyone to pick up and use. If you think they are missing something, feel free to let me know in the comments below.
Thanks for reading, and hope you have a great day!
Here’s another card for today, for the organization Highly Unlikely Mission Personnel, or H.U.M.P. for short. These people are very good at disguises, but I don’t know how that will help their dance skills…
This is Slidin Foot, a master of disguise and a deft foot on the dance floor.
Hope you like it, feel free to leave a comment below. Cheers!
Here’s today’s image. It’s the female spy from the C.I.P organization, Picky Pardons.
This was kind of a tough one to do. Not sure if I like the way the turtleneck worked out. Will probably work on that a bit more.
Hope you like it, feel free to leave comments below!
Here’s today’s card. This one I had the hardest time with figuring out the font and the name of the organization, since really the main idea behind this spy is that he’s kind of an every man that is just running away, until he finds out who he really is and goes on a killing spree to return to his normal life:
Working with putting the organization name upside down for easier reading for other people playing the game. Played with putting the spy name upside down as well, but that looked funny.
Hope you like it, feel free to leave comments below.
Still have one more organization to draw, but that’s a post for later. Right now, here’s the draft version of the back of the cards for Shaken, Not Poisoned:
Glad I was able to get the martini in. The top martini is meant to be the safe one, the bottom one is the poisoned one. Might end up putting them in the poison and protect cards. Hope you like it.
