We’ve just crossed over the 48 hour threshold! We are now less than 2 days away from the end of the Campaign, and we’re very thankful for each and every backer.
Today, I bring you another Design Diary installment, focusing on the Party Fowl “Sleeping Dogs Lie” from Oh Cluck, The Eggspansion!
When we set out to design party fowls, we have a couple of “guidelines” we try and stick to.
1.) They enter play, and either attach to, or replace / become your Rooster
2.) They will get scored in someone’s Egg Basket (even when worth no eggs) , meaning that they are only seen once per game.
So when looking for parts of the year to highlight in the Eggspansion, we thought about the Dog Days of Summer.
We went through a couple of iterations of the card, until we settled on this. With 1 Feather, Sleeping Dogs Lie only affords a thin layer of protection for your Rooster (unless you’ve got dodges). Once the Party Fowl takes a damage, the person who damaged it scores it in their victory pile, and the effect ends.
But, while Sleeping Dogs Lie is attached to your Rooster, enemies may think twice about trying to mess with you!
