Weapon Questby Zarkith - Compo Entry
POST-COMPO Version has been updated to v0.3.1 in Tabletop Simulator and the P&P Extras folder.
NOTE: This is a board game for 2 to 6 players
I didn't have enough time to make Enemy and Enhancement cards before the Compo deadline, so when you play do not go to the Laboratory, Outskirts, or Dungeon.
This game has also not been playtested at all during the Compo and is not at all balanced.
But hey, for my first solo entry AND my first board game entry, I don't think it came out *too* terrible. :P
Welcome to Weapon Quest!
The Smithing Town of Ludumsville is hosting their annual weaponcraft tournament one week from now. As an up and coming weaponsmith, you have decided to enter the competition. You will have one week to collect various different parts and craft them into the ULTIMATE WEAPON! However, you are not the only weaponsmith in town this week...
Rules are included in the Print & Play link.
Updated Post-Compo Rules are included in the P&P Extras link and TTS mod

There's more blank spaces to fill than just the card art. ;)
When trying to figure out exactly what a part is, or how your parts fit together, just use your imagination and go nuts!
No matter what happens, your weapon does NOT have to make sense, and is encouraged not to! :D
Card Art that isn't just blank space, but will still look as bad as the game board. :V
[ONGOING] Re-balance board, cards, and rules based on playtesting & feedback.
[DONE] Add Monster Cards
[DONE] Black & White Board and Cards
[DONE] Add Enhancement Cards
[DONE] Cards are now on single image sheets for (hopefully) easier printing/cutting
[DONE] Papercraft Custom Dice

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.
CAN I ENTER BOTH EVENTS?: You should pick 1 event, whichever you think it’ll do better in. If the idea is strong, and everything plays well enough, you can go Compo. If you’re a perfectionist, and would prefer people to play a more polished game, do the Jam. Historically, more games are entered in the Compo, but with more people and more time, Jam games have the potential to be better (that doesn’t mean they are). Many solo participants do enter the Jam.
If you made 2 games, unfortunately, the website doesn’t support multiple submissions per user. To submit your 2nd game, you will have to make a 2nd account. Only do this if you made 2 games. Alternatively, if one game is better than the other, then consider just entering the better game.
CAN I KEEP WORKING UNTIL THE DEADLINE?: Yes! Immediately after the 48 or 72 hours, we do something called Submission Hour. As the name suggests, it’s an extra hour for you to package, upload, and submit your games. If there were catastrophic issues trying submitting your game, or you misunderstood how submissions work, that’s okay. It happens. We’re flexible. If you need advice, check with the folks on IRC. If you need an admin, get in touch.
CAN I KEEP WORKING ON MY GAME?: Oh definitely! You should! But for the sake of judging, keep the Compo or Jam version around. You can include a link to the Post-Compo/Post-Jam version of your game on your games page, but sure your main links are the original version.
PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate at least 20 games to improve your visibility (Coolness).
MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crashes, win condition, or tiny bugs after the deadline. In a sense, this is like “porting” to support more players. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just fixing mistakes you should have caught had you been better rested.
MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.
NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.
