Work from Home Wednesdays: Rock -N- Arena 1.0

Filed under: work from home wednesday — Tags: , , — Tod @ 10:01 am

Jonah and I were out looking at rocks in the yard again the other day and we scooped up a handful of interesting ones to bring home. The wheels started turning in the back of my mind and I suddenly got a bug up my ass to make some pet rocks and figure out a simple game to play with them.

Find some #rocks

Step 1. Get some rocks

Paint the #rocks

Step 2. Paint them up. I randomized them on a 1d6.

1 – Red
2 – Yellow
3 – Blue
4 – White
5 – Natural
6 – Black

Add #eyeballs

Step 3.  Add googly eyes. This step required a midnight run to the Walmart craft center after I couldn’t find my stash. I got an assorted pack and made another 1d6 randomizer.

1- close set eyes
2 – single space eyes
3 – wide space eyes
4 – dot eyes
5 – single large eye
6 – 3 or more eyes

Add mouths

Step 4. Add mouths. I made another 1d6 randomizer for mouths:

1 – Angry mouth
2 – O mouth
3 – Happy mouth
4 – Sharp mouth
5 – Flat mouth
6 – Skull teeth

Rock -n- Arena game piece prototype 1.0

I also divided the rocks into the following categories

SIZE: Small – Medium – Large

SHAPE: Flat – Full – Tall
TEXTURE: Smooth – Bumpy – Sharp

That makes 36 combinations of eyes/mouths with possible modifiers for color, size, shape and texture.  My first attempt at combat rules turned out to be no fun at all, but I’m willing to let it bounce around in my head for a while to see what becomes of it.

Seagull comix inspired by true stories of the seagull population at Sea World. Also, I unabashedly cannot draw a seagull apparently.
