Extraterrestrial Grail version has been released! The change list is listed below:

* added the ability to customize a deck of attribute cards for use in a game of Extraterrestrial Grail
* a text box with a picture and a description of the Attribute card will popup when clicking on the ? button
* decrypting headset only requires a roll of 4/5/6 for the six-sided die in order to be successful (instead of 5/6)
* when both the freeze and heat pump are held in the hand, it will create a healing energy for the alien which gains 1 life point at the beginning of a new turn (if not past the max)

Has anyone had a chance to play my game yet?

Been strapped to the Mac all week.
I'm pretty sure someone's had a chance to at least look at it by now..

.. Surely?

At the setup screen, first you must choose the planets that you start with at the beginning of the game by clicking on the buttons (at the top right). These are the planets that you are going to put some of your attribute cards into since you can only hold 6 attribute cards in your hand at a time.

After you have finished choosing your planets, you must decide which 6 attribute cards that you want to keep in your hand and out the rest of the cards in the planets. In order to choose a planet, select it from the dropdown box on the right hand side. The right hand side shows which cards are stored in a particular planet. The left hand side shows which cards you currently have in your hand.

To move a card from your hand to a planet, click on the right arrow after selecting a card.

Once you have 6 or less cards in your hand, the start button will change color and you can click that button to start the game.

I have released an updated version of Extraterrestrial Grail which contains updated graphics for the aliens, attribute cards, and game board.


Let me know what you think about the new graphics. At least this game isn't such an eyesore now, haha. An in-game tutorial is now my highest priority and it will be ready for the next release.

Have fun!
