Does anyone here enjoy non-complex games? My motto when developing a game is "simple is better". I am always trying to create games that are super easy to learn and play yet offer a good balance between strategy and luck. The game GO is a great example. Simple board, simple rules, simple pieces, yet infinitely challenging or very simple to play depending on the players.
I have been refining and changing the rules for Bag-O-Loot for two months now and we are almost finished. It used to be two full pages of rules with pictures and explanations for every possible situation. Now it is down to half a page of rules and offers even better game play than the original.
Bag-O-Loot is a card game so there is always luck involved due to the random draw of cards. But the rules, although simple, create a framework for light fun or deeper strategy.
We are entering the third and final phase of game testing as we polish the new rules one last time. If you like less complicated games and would like to be on the testing team, sign up on the web site: www.johnstanleyshelley.com/gametester
