Game: Lovespoons the Card Game

Lovespoons is based on the Welsh tradition of carving love-spoons to give to the object of one's affections, or to exchange between lovers. This came up during our pre-jam brainstorming session on Friday, since 25 Jan is Dydd Santes Dwynwen, the "Welsh Valentine's Day", and since the theme is a heartbeat. Three of us who were still around on Saturday night, and either nearly finished their main jam project (Pete and Tom) or organising the event and so with little time to jam till then), chatted a bit to come up with basic concepts, and we're now racing to get a playable version done by 3pm.


More the Merrier: The game is a competitive or cooperative multiplayer "party game" (i.e., based on minigames, humor, 4+ players, audience engagement, etc.), meant for one screen or more.
Approved for All Audiences: The game must not show any violence, not even cartoonish. Stepping on living mushrooms is off the list, as is killing any type of enemies, not even undead, though we know they’re already dead…

For a 4 to 5 player game, you'll need a copy of the rules, and 5 copies of each of the card sheets (one has 7 cards on, the other 8, for a total of 75 cards). Mount the card sheets on stiffer card then cut out. For a six-player game, and another one of each card sheet.



non-digital game (board game, card game, physical game, etc.)
