Mornin'!

Same to you! I had to put this game on hold while I prepared for another game, but I'm really glad to be back in it now.

Erik Bates | November 6

I enjoyed reading the Extra Life story. Looks like you had a lot of fun. I've never fully understood deck building games of that type. I tried Magic: The Gathering once, but just couldn't get the hang of it.

I suppose Rock Block falls into that category, somewhat, with the exception of different bands not having different abilities (boy, wouldn't THAT be something?).

Scott Hardie | November 6

Yeah, Magic is a dangerous black hole to me. I'm tempted to get into it because it seems fun (I played it once years ago), but I know I'd feel a compulsion to collect every last card and develop complex strategies and I'd just sink a ton of money and time into it that I'd lose for other things. What's that old meme? I don't consider myself especially good at deckbuilders (I failed to win the most games this past weekend and made a pledged donation accordingly), but I enjoy them well enough.

You hit the nail on the head about Rock Block's one weakness, something I've been thinking about lately: Every artist is basically the same, just with different numbers. If I could do the game over again, I might give each artist an ability, like maybe (spitballing here), Led Zeppelin has an ability called "Stairway to Heaven" that automatically captures all cards in a line above it on stage, or Elvis Presley has an ability called "Hound Dog" that hunts down one random R1 anywhere on stage and captures it. I don't know whether Rock Block can support that much variation (there are only so many possibilities for capturing on a stage; start a concert now with all play rules and most of them overlap each other redundantly), but I love the idea of it. I'm in the early planning stages of another game that hopefully can support that much complexity, with elements of Rock Block and Marvel Legendary and a number of other games that I love. I don't know if I will ever finish a playable version of it, since I don't have time for the stuff already on my plate, but it's something that I really want to do.
