2024-02-23 (F) Weekly Summary

I chose a techy cardback from my collection, added text and blacked out the border to make the back of my Carrier deck. I made Ship Status cards for tracking damage and they have different colors that match cubes I can buy on thegamecrafter.com. I had trouble adding squares, so I drafted them in QCAD and imported them.

I worked on the Carrier deck cardback and faces. I used meteoroid pictures from the Meteoroid Field deck. The Repair cards have unique images of a spaceship repair bay, even if it does not make sense to have multiple locations.

I had some unique card ideas for the game but postponed implementing them until now. I still need to decide which deck they should go in and how much information to put on the cards. This will require some balancing and testing.
Unique testing cards
One particular AI-generated card has been an excellent resource for me. I used its color shift in the Meteoroid Field deck and on the back of my Rules cards. The rules are untested but will be discussed during alpha testing. These cards were not meant for the final game.

For the prototyping phase's last step, I printed a box with a nice design. I added the Granica logo, game info, and a short blurb. I ordered three copies, which will take six weeks to ship. This project complete for now.

I wanted to track a few numbers in games visually and looked at counter wheels. They typically have a cardboard sheath and an internal cardboard wheel, but I wanted to try something more like an analog clock face. Instead of two central hands, I used one pointed around the perimeter. I cut four out of plywood and assembled them with M3 hardware.
