Minneapolis, MN – Full time teacher (me) is seeking funding for an exciting new table-top game. The deck-building game encourages table talk and player interactions. The idea first conceived as a way to motivate students to do homework evolved into a full and rich game.
The game has received praise from testers and reviewers. Lance Myxter (The Undead Viking) says, “A breath of fresh air for the whole genre and a lot of fun to play.” One of the game’s testers commented, “This game is easy to learn, fun to play, but difficult to master. Highly recommended!” Board Game Brawl said, “You got a giant portrait, you got stats you keep track of, your power-ups you keep track of. It just makes you feel like you’re actually playing a character…”
The game is built around communication and negotiations between players the designer gives the his reasons for designing a game with this style
In the U.S. and around the world it seems there are huge holes in our communication. We have all these awesome new ways of communicating, but it seems many of us have lost the ability to listen. People often simply talk over one another. All you need to do is watch the U.S presidential debates or read about Brexit to see that people are not hearing each other. I am not so naive to think that this game, which if I am really lucky will be played by a few thousand people, is going to change the trend. But maybe if we can get more people learning to disagree, make strategies, talk trash and work things out in the safety of a game maybe just maybe people can start hearing each other in other areas of life.
With great artwork from Brian Allen and well tested game mechanics this game will bring enjoyment to your family and friends. Players take control of a character, each with a unique ability, and try to outlast the others. With the many choices and interactions that occur throughout the game no two games are ever the same.
As the designer of this game I admit this is an attempt to get more exposure for a game that I think many will enjoy. Thank you for taking the time to check out this game at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1506769415/taking-of-taidian-0?ref=ev7kyk
