Fill in the Game! With us!

We here at Foolish Media are pleased to announce that we have launched a series of videos that will show you the ins and outs of playing Fill in the Game!

Each week, over on facebook, we will be posting a picture of a new card, and card type from the game, and we are looking for you to Fill in the Game! Send us your suggestions on how you would challenge a friend to play the game, and may we will include it in the next video!

We have recorded 2 videos so far in the series. The First video, featuring Chad and his assistant Kez, can be found here. The first video featurings a Green / Easy Challenge from the Challenge Deck, and the latest video (available here)  features 3 of the 4 fools, and one Greek Goddess showing how medium challenges will work!

Next, we will have a hard challenge video, where we show you how to use Stunt Cards, and then a video on Game Changers, and then we will finish up with a couple of videos of turns / games being played to give you an idea of how this all comes together!

Stay Tuned!

Design Diary: The Anatomy of a… “Rooster”?

Now that is a bizarre looking Rooster. Meet the Farmer!

Welcome to another Design Diary! Today’s Design Diary focuses on Roosters, and we’re going to use a very special Rooster as the Preview. Meet the Farmer! The Farmer is one of the “Roosters” from the Eggspansion, and is a very special Addition to the game. His farm’s barnyard is the epicenter for our brawl.

When we design a Rooster, we try REALLY hard to come at each Rooster from a thematic sense. Name, or what the Rooster is, has come first more often than not, and the ability is themed accordingly.

With this Rooster, we looked at trying to think of a Farmer just trying to do his farming chores while his crazy Roosters are staging a brawl! So, what does a chicken farmer do? He collects his eggs.

When thinking about the relative toughness of a Rooster, 3 feathers is the minimum (for non canned Roosters). The farmer, being a little stronger than your average Rooster comes in at a 4. We could have given him more feathers, but then we would have wanted to tone down the ability, to make sure that he wasn’t a giant wall that allowed the wielder of the farmer to just waltz to a win.

We kept his eggs low, to make sure that he wasn’t going to get the “Take A Dive” treatment, and make for a not fun play experience. We didn’t want him to have zero eggs, because then it felt more like an annoyance to have to engage him than anything else.

48 Hours left to back Oh Cluck! on Kickstarter

Maybe it's best if you let the dog sleep, right?

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!

3 days left to back Oh Cluck! on Kickstarter!

Eggbert sporting his Tarot Size, and 2 new cards from Eggspansion

Good News Everyone!
Ray has completed all of the Art for the Eggspansion! We’re really proud of all the artwork that he has put together for this game!

In the Faberge’ and Carton of Awesome versions of Oh Cluck!, we have talked about Tarot Card Sized Roosters. Mr. Eggbert is here to show off this fancy size for the Roosters. The size difference you seen above is really accurate.

This will make the Roosters really stand out on the table, and definitely makes playing the game with bigger groups a more positive experience.

800 Feathers, and Trick or Treat are a couple of the new pieces of Art for the Eggspansion!

Stay tuned as we close in on the end of the campaign! We’re going to finish spoiling the Eggspansion for you, and may throw a few more surprises at you!

Kickstarter News, and Card Previews!

Hello Everyone!

Thanks to all of our backers so far, the Oh Cluck! Kickstarter Campaign is nearing the halfway point, and we are about halfway funded!

So far, we have two Stretch Goals unlocked:

Sucker Punch, the Instagram Social Stretch Goal

Sucker Punch, our Instagram Stretch Goal, has been unlocked at the first tier. (readers of the site may have seen this already)

Tyler, our super secret Party Fowl

And, since we achieved 25 backers on Kickstarter, every backer gets a copy of Tyler, our Promo Party Fowl. This is pretty serious, since we have kept Tyler pretty close to the vest, and only given him to people who have met a Fool out and about.

A host of new cards from the Eggspansion!

We have also had Ray hard at work finishing up the rest of the art for the Eggspansion! Here are a couple of the new cards, as well as the new art for an old card: Kung Pow!

With 17 days in the campaign there is still plenty of time to back the game, and get in on the Barnyard Brawl for it All!
