So, hows about we get a card game going? When I say 'we' I mean I doubt I can do this alone, even though it's the holidays. Outside input is definitely needed.Testers would be needed too.
A card game. Think about it! Of course, it probably shouldn't be name something like 'wawa: kulupu' or 'Ju-Ki-O' or 'utala lipu' since it's not a translation, it's an actual thing. Actually, 'utala lipu' might be kinda good...
Moving on. These are my ideas so far (as copied down from my book with some extras):
TP card game:
Each word belongs to a 'faction': kon, seli and kiwen. There are as many (or more) cards (more for event-y stuff and extra thingamabobs) as there are words. There is a card for each word (more like a card based off of the ideas of the word).
kon - many events (la). I guess hive-mind-y, supports each other and many of them sort of thing? Maybe? Air-like (of course) and fast (if speed is incorporated).
seli - many effects (blah li blah e blah). Lots of destruction but little defense.
kiwen - many armours (len). Very defensive with plenty of fortifications.
I was thinking that maybe it could go down Magic: The Gathering style (yes, this is biased and based on my experiences with card games). Each creature has an attack and defense/health number. When a creature attacks'blocks, they simultaneously attack each other until something dies (goes down to 0 defense/health), even if they both die.
Ok, that's what I've got so far. I'm not 100% sure how numbers would work, maybe roman numerals? (imho that would be awesome and hilarious). I'd like to use a lot of glyphs, but since that's not possible until the book comes out, it should probably just be standard writing for now.
Could someone please post this to the facebook group 'kulupu sitelen pi toki pona'? I want this to reach quite a few people. If you're interested in helping out, maybe add your skype name and I'll see if I can make a group. Or a fb group if that's easier. Or, if you just casually have something to suggest or add, just chat over here
