My April PnP

April was a month. Lockdown. Home schooling. Life through zoom. Despite being home all the time, we didn’t have much actual spare time. However, I did get in some crafting.

This is what I made:

Trekkie in my Pocket
Pont D’Avignon 
Unlocked (demo)
Splat (2019 PnP Contest)

That’s actually even less than I remembered. I did do a lot of downloading and initial printing so I guess I’ve been busier than my actual competition rate would indicate.

My ‘big’ project for April was Trekkie in my Pocket, also known as Star a Trek in my Pocket. It’s a reskin of Zombie in my Pocket that has almost no mechanical changes. It’s themed around the original Star Trek but a little incoherently. The Enterprise has apparently been invaded by Klingons, Romulans, Salt Vampires, Gorn and a whole lot more. Is this the Captain Kirk a revenge Squad as opposed to representatives of their individual governments?

What really sold me on making it, though, was that the tiles as well as the actual cards are full-sized cards. When I made Raider in my Pocket, the components were so small I had trouble actually using them to play. Trekkie in Space solves that problem nicely.

We were going to take our son to a Mystery Room but that all got canceled with the lockdown. So I decided make a copy of Unlock’s demo with the thought of trying it out and seeing if that is a similar enough experience. If it is, we might make more scenarios since Asmode currently has them available.

I have a feeling that I’ll be laminating a bunch of Roll and Write sheets in May because that’s a game genre that I’ve found really handy during lockdown.
