Calling board gamers who enjoy a challenge!

My upcoming game, Unbroken, is in a good place in terms of overall rules but I need more data to figure out whether the Hard difficulty is too punishing or just right.

If anyone wants to give the Print and Play a spin on a Hard difficulty (maybe play a couple of games on Med to learn first) - would love to hear your impressions.
Current Medium win rate is about 40% (higher for experienced players) but I'm looking for more info on the Hard difficulty. It was meant to be a tough challenge.

Unbroken is a solo-only game of survival and revenge in a world of dark fantasy - you play as a sole survivor of a failed adventure trying to make it out without being eaten by the monsters. It plays in ~20 min once you know what you're doing.

The Print and Play file is available at http://altemagames.com/unbroken/playtesting/

Thanks for considering!

I am amazed this guy doesn't have more of a following. Consistently awesome videos.
Love his sense of humour. Made me really curious to try some of the games he talks about.

Hey awesome board gamers,

An updated Print and Play for Unbroken: a solo game of survival and revenge is now available.

I posted about it a month ago and since then the game went through a robust playtesting with over 170 games logged. Following the balancing and addition of some new content I am now happy to offer a next-to-final Print and Play version to all those interested.

Everything required to play the game is available at http://altemagames.com/unbroken/playtesting/

Unbroken is a solo card game set in a world of dark fantasy. It tells the story of an unfortunate adventurer who gets left for dead in monster-infested catacombs. Wounded, hungry and alone, you have to fight your way out of the caverns using your wits, resolve and makeshift weaponry. It plays in 15-25 minutes.

The game had an overwhelmingly positive reception from testers with 93% liking or loving it.

I welcome anyone interested in challenging games to try it out and share their thoughts. The BGG listing for the game is now live as well : https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/225885/unbroken

Hi everyone. Happy Friday!

I am looking for playtesters for a solo RPG-light game I have created - perhaps this will be of interest to those of you who like a challenge.

Unbroken is a solo card game focusing on survival and combat in a dark fantasy setting. It tells the tale of an unfortunate adventurer whose party got wiped out by monsters. Alone, wounded and without any equipment the player has to overcome the dangers of the monster-infested tunnels and make it out alive.
Once you learn the game each play takes 15-20 min.

The game has been in development for about half a year and is now undergoing public blind playtesting. I aim to bring it to Kickstarter towards the end of 2017.

Would truly appreciate anyone willing to make a Print and Play and give it a whirl. Full instructions and Print and Play files available at

I am considering a subtitle for the upcoming second printing of my game, Cauldron. Which one of these do you like? Help me pick or suggest your own. Thank you!

Quick overview - it's a light strategy game of harvesting magical ingredients to brew potions. Lots of player interaction and take-that, lighthearted feel overall.

A while ago there was a good discussion here about The Grizzled that made me reflect on my thoughts about the game.

I wrote up a review that goes into some of these thoughts - hope it will be helpful to you if you're looking to learn more about this unique game.

Hey there, awesome board gamers!

I am working on my upcoming game and am in the process of selecting an artist to do the bulk of the illustrations. As seasoned connoisseurs of the hobby - I would appreciate the group's input on preference between these three options.

The game is a dark fantasy tale of survival and revenge in caverns filled with monstrous humanoids. I am looking for a gritty, dangerous, malicious style that sets the right mood.

Which of the three do you like best for that purpose? Why?

Thanks!

For fellow fans of the Lord of the Rings LCG - here is a poster-size adventure tracker that you can print out to mark your progress (only includes first 4 cycles and 2 sagas).

Makes for a nice decoration too :)

Suggested dimensions 0.5 x 2m
