    DESCRIPTION

    “Lead one of four scheming factions for mastery over a shattered world! The Arnunnian Alliance has mastered magic and strikes with lightning speed; the Red Barbarian Brotherhood pursues with brutal and unrelenting force; the Pirate Confederacy cunningly sneaks past their opponents, while the Undead Legion‘s growing numbers threaten to overwhelm all that stand in their way.”

This boxed set comes with four powerful card decks, each with its own flavor and mechanics, and is suitable for up to 4 players in single game (1vs1), team game (2vs2) and multi game (up to 4 individual players).

    “De oma van Roodkapje is met Roodkapje en haar vriendjes aan het wandelen in het bos. Ze zijn op weg naar huis. Hand in hand lopen ze door het bos, ze kletsen wat en zingen af en toe een liedje. Om elkaar te vermaken geven ze elkaar grappige opdrachten. Na een gezellige wandeling komen ze bij het huisje van oma. Wanneer ze allemaal binnen in het huisje zijn, maken ze samen een mooie puzzel.”

  • PAT’ AT WORK: AN INTERN’S BLOG

    AUTHOR: // CATEGORY: News

    No Comments

    patricia103:00 AM, late January. Out of nowhere, a post appeared on the Quantuum Magic website: they were looking for lonely students to offer their soul- Uh, I mean, they were looking for interns for various positions in the company. One of those positions was for someone who could work magic with computers and could make the most stunning, dazzling and amazing things with graphic design, and the other was a commercial internship for some sales… stuff…

    Guess which one is writing this article!

    So, how about an official introduction. Hello! My name is Patricia, and I am a 3rd year student Communication and multimedia design. This means that they’re trying to learn me how to make things like websites, movies, logo’s, marketing campaigns, games, audio, 3d models and neat little concepts. It basically means that I work with a computer. A LOT. My faculty wasn’t all to happy about it at first (“ B0ard games? What does that have to do with multimedia?!”)

    But, I’m pretty happy! My work at the moment consists of making graphic material for some of their new products, like for example the teaser trailer of Fameroo!, and later on the official commercial. But that’s not all that I do. I am very interested in storytelling (one of the key points of Quantuum magic, what a coincidence!) and they want to help me develop in that area. I now have the chance to write some blogs/articles for the website. “Great!” I thought. “but, what would it be about?”

     

    Well, board games, obviously. During my internship, I will encounter a lot of things that I’ll have no knowledge of. How board games come to be, for example. The concepting process, the developing, the design… Sure, I’ve thought about what it would be like to make my own board game, but I’ve never actually done it. I have no clue about how it’s done in “real life” How DO they come to be? What is Quantuum Magic’s role in this process and maybe even more important, what’s mine? So, I decided to base my blogs on that. Think of it as a joint quest through the amazing world of board games.

    To give you an example, my next blog will be about the importance of good artwork. At this moment at the Quantuum Magic HQ we’re very busy with the release of Fameroo! This is a game for children of 4 years and up, based on life on the farm. As you would suspect for a children’s board game, the artwork is very colorful and happy. But there’s a whole lot of history behind that artwork. What kind of influence can good artwork be on a game? What are the choices you have to make? How does QM fit in in all of that? Those are the kind of questions I want to answer with my blogs.

    I hope you all want to follow me on this, uh, Quest!

    See you next time!

  • GAME DESIGN TIP #8: GUARDIAN (STEREOTYPES)

    AUTHOR: // CATEGORY: DesignTips

    No Comments

    Yesterday we launched a question on twitter to gather some input for the next installment in our continuing Game Design Tip series. We asked: “Looking for fun subject ideas for an article providing a publisher’s perspective on game designer issues! Any takers?” Luckily for us, we have awesome followers on twitter, one of them being @MeowGod.

    He came up with the suggestion of doing an article about a publisher’s experiences in dealing with different types of designer personalities. Since our take on this might help some designers to understand how a publisher preceives them, we thought out some funny (stereo)typical designer personalities we’ve met during our Open Door Wednesdays.

    In this first installment, we talk about the Guardian: the proud defender of his game concept. Do you have suggestions for more Designer Stereotypes? Let us know on twitter, facebook or through email.

     The Guardian

    GuardianSome people have an amazing concept, but don’t really show it until the end of a session (or not at all).  They are very protective of their concept and/or mechanics, don’t reveal too much about it and have a constant fear that their idea will be hijacked. They take a long pause before answering the publisher’s questions, waging the pros and cons about revealing every bit of information about their game. Most of the meetings with a Guardian result in the Publisher having the idea that the designer doesn’t really like his or her game and lacks motivation.

    Understandably, some designers turn into Guardians because someone stole their ideas in the past. Their ideas have been turned down, only to re-emerge in a slightly different form later. Now, someone else is making money from of their creativity, and they feel betrayed. And rightfully so!

    GAME DESIGN TIP: A publisher has to understand and respect this attitude, but also has to have a clear image of a game before deciding on it. The relationship between a designer and a publisher relies on trust. If you, as a game designer, feel uneasy about showing your concept to a publisher because you feel he might trademark the game without your approval, then clearly you’re pitching the game at the wrong publisher. You have to ask yourself if you even want to get on the train with them. Always do a bit of research on the publisher, ask fellow designers that went there about their experiences, and don’t be affraid to ask them difficult questions yourself.

    That’s it for the first installment of the stereotypical game designer personalities! Up next time is the Railroader!
