ATA Mark 2 Prototype by jollyjack ATA Mark 2 Prototype by jollyjack
The nearly-complete version of my post-apocalyptic boardgame.

Original:


Additional:
>This is going to be a kit-game. You purchase a pdf, print it out, stick it to a bit of card and play - so you'll need a printer and a few dice.
>Game area required IS large. 70cm x 70cm, at a minimum.
>Game time: a good few hours, but varies due to the random configuration of the game tiles.
>Assuming you use a heavy stock of card for construction (and aren't careless with long sleeves), you shouldn't have trouble keeping your tiles in place during play. For this prototype, I printed the tile faces on photo-paper, which was then stuck to a heavy white card, which was in turn stuck to a thinner, coloured card. That much work isn't required to make the game playable, but it A) looks nice and B) makes for a sturdier set-up.

Looks pretty sweet. I'd probably paste the tiles to cut out squares of foam-board.
It's some craft time, but not insane Warhammer kind of time!
Can't wait to see the finished thing.

Looks cool! Would the pices stay in place if they were put on one of those jig saw roll mats so the game could be saved ?

Get those adhevsive backed magnetic sheets, cut to size, use either a thin piece of sheet metal with a cloth over it or right on the metal. Also would work on anything metal (table, etc. (obviously)) but would also add some weight to the pieces if nothing else. Some digging around found prices down to about $1 a sq. ft.

Otherwise, looking forward to the complete version!

A good idea....but I don't really want to ask people to play a boardgame in which them might lose a finger.
Sharp edges!

No sharp edges...Soft magnets. And....different company makes printable magnetic sheets. About $1.50 for 25-49. Gonna use for something else now, but might still be cool for this. (I actually had a folding table that would have been perfect for that...)

I don't like having "road" as a terrain type, since presumably there are roads in all the other squares too.

Looks great, just print it out and get something to weigh them down is all you really need actually. Looks really fun, i was wondering if you were going to design possible characters for the game? Or were you going to leave that up to the player?

I might make a character-based expansion set at a later date, but right now, units are just anonymous little workers.

Ah alright, makes sense. Wasn't too sure if you were going to design them or not, figured we'd be molding out survivors to the way we see fit. Like in DnD where we don't really see what our characters look like except we imagine them. Though glad to see a character based expansion in sight. Are there any creatures lurking in the wasteland? Mutated rats?

So, can I buy the PDF and play it online over a virtual table top like Roll20 or Taebl? I'm more skilled at pushing pixels than paper craft.
Reply
:iconjollyjack:
jollyjack Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2013
Y'know.....selling the game via Roll20 might not be such a bad idea!
I read about the system a while back, but never thought much of it till now.
I'll look into that. Thanks!

What about those multicolored plastic looking game pieces?

The game template includes little cut-out pawns, but the assembly instructions will detail that plastic "Halma Pawns" can be purchased, dirt cheap, online.

Mr. Jackson,
If you're interested in beta testers, I know a few of my friends who LOVE playing lengthy board games (Risk, Axis and Allies, Diplomacy, and the like). They often get together and spend a Saturday arguing and enjoying themselves.
I'm sure they'd be more than happy to give input/criticism. I understand if you're not interested, but I'm just throwing this out there.
Sadly, my attention span is not long enough to appreciate a game as complex as this. It looks like a lot of fun, though!

Alternatively, couldn't you use those magnet sheets you can cut up and then have the board on a magnetic surface? Would also help keep the pieces in place.

I'm still confused as to how this would work even after reading the comment below on the objectives. Is there a place with more details, like the advised number of players, how to set up the game, what interaction happens to get to said objectives?

Does look awesome. I wonder how much effort it would take to make this into a digital game, since that could make finding people to play with a lot easier than getting physically together. Although making that while maintaining it secure might be infeasible >.<'
