When we started on this design journey, the first game we really developed for a Kickstarter campaign was Charge! and army building card game. That game has been re-themed into Mars 4:45 a Colony building card game. I will write a proper introduction to the game when we are closer to the KS campaign that will include art and diagrams and maybe even some videos of game play. What we have for you today are the rules we finished writing last weekend. I invite you to take a look at the rules and give us your feedback. Give yourself a flavor of what to expect.

There are pictures and diagrams that need to be added but the entire text of the rule book is there. If you like reading rules or you would like to know more about our first project coming to KS, please take a look and tell us what you think.
I don’t want to show off the fronts of our cards yet, I have some special plans for that art. What I will show you are a couple of the card backs to give you a feel for where the art is going.
If you have any comments or questions, leave a comment here or email Chris at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have made it this far, would you like to go a little farther? We have a regular Google hangout with other designers. We talk about the games we are working on and share helpful tips and ideas on how to make designing our game easier. We meetup every other Saturday. Either comment here or tweet me or email me and I will add you to the list and send you a link to the Google hangout.
