What's in a Name? What's in the Box?

This week, more work on Pass the Salt had been done.

First, it was brought to my attention that there is a religious game that already has the name "Pass the Salt." Bummer. After some asking around, I landed on the new name for the game, "Salt Assault." It was actually the second name that I came up with but seems to be the most well liked. It makes sense also.

After deciding on the name, I worked on some box art. After 3 revisions, I ended on my second attempt version.


It's funny that, while I'm working on these art related things, I'm alright with crappy designs for a while, but something pushes me to continue trying new ideas. 

It was pretty fun replicating the box from Star Realms as far as dimensions and edges to cut. The paper model came out surprisingly well. I wish I would have used the thicker paper that I had though. I suppose I can print another. 

This week, I'm going to finish up the Punctuation card text. I will also change the card fronts just a little bit and brainstorm ideas on a new card back. I have a 50+ hour work week ahead of me. Hopefully I can manage to get game work done. 

The rules and deck balance all seems to be good now. It's all finishing up art and learning what to do about financing and marketing. I don't like marketing. :/

Until next time.
