I've committed to the project and I'm still on track for an october / november kickstarter launch. i'm really, really excited about it.
Heres a quick 'blurb' about it...
"Dodgy Dealers" is a 2-12 player deception/collection card game. Play as an expert Art Dealer that specialises in Black Market trading. Fulfil your contract by collecting works of a specific famous artist's (usually stolen) art. Discover the dirty underbelly of the art world first hand as you wade through a sea of forgeries and unsavoury characters that will do anything to stop you from fulfilling your contract before they do.
It features an unique game mechanic. Players are able to determine which artworks are genuine and which are forgeries by touching and examining them! Genuine Paintings will feel significantly different to an expert Art Dealer.
It also features the art of some of the most famous painters of all time; the core game includes 6 recognisably works by each of the following; Van Gogh, Claude Monet, Edvard Munch and John Singer Sargent."
That's all for today, there's much more I'd like to talk about. The set up / the phases / the tactics / the 'expansions'. I'll pump out a couple of blog posts in relation to those and also in relation to the design process and how I arrived at where I am now.
