this site is not currently on google; this signifies that i must pack my bags and move back to http://iambinary.blogspot.com/  google owns me, and the world, it seems.

but, because i don't feel like being owned by google, you may continue stalking me @ http://iambinary.wordpress.com

oh, also, Weebly has a terrible interface. i would not recommend it - even if they paid me.
 
 

Fun is a term used to describe a quality of an object or action if the object or action evokes the emotion of happiness or positive anticipation in a human being.

i designed a game right now that hasn't been playtested or balanced xD:

game name: Humanitarian Aid

*objective: To earn the most humanitarian stars and become the #1 humanitarian
*players: 4
*materials: one standard 52-card deck of playing cards (with Jokers removed) for each player
*setup: on the first turn, each player draws 7 cards
*game progression:
1 draw phase - each turn after the first, going counter-clockwise, each player draws 3 card
2 switch phase – players may put any card at the bottom of their deck, and draw another, one per turn
3 placement phase – black cards represent wounded soliders, players take turns placing up to 3 solider cards on the hospital bed (table)
4 healing phase – red cards represent nurses, players take turns healing the soliders w/ up to 3 nurse cards (only soldiers that are not yours)
-how healings works: number (or picture) of nurse card matches number (or picture) of solider card
-note: The number on the card represents the number of soliders, for black cards, or nurses, for red cards
5 reward phase - humanitarian star: each match earns 2 humanitarian star for the player who did the healing, and 1 humanitarian star for the player being healed. Bonus for cards matched w/ pictures (queen, king, jack), 4/2 instead of 2/1
6 ending phase - both solider and nurse cards are placed at the bottom of their respective decks
*winning conditions: The players set the max stars, and when that is reach, you found the #1 humanitarian. Everyone is considered a winner =D
