Update on the Cyberboard gamebox 11/05/07

The gamebox is completely finished (including the documentation). It has the following features:

I feel that at this point it is important to say that copyright infringement is NOT intended, nor is it my intention for this gamebox to in any way take away from sales of Treehouse sets, Martian Coasters or any other Looney Labs product. The purpose of this gamebox is for Rabbits to play games with other Rabbits that they may only see once a year at Origins or GenCon, or for those of us who, for whatever reason, will not be able to attend these conventions and meet other rabbits. If approved by the Looneys, distribution of this gamebox will be completely under their control.

That said, the following scenarios have been built:

Treehouse (Rainbow and Xeno)
Martian Coasters (2, 3, 4, and 5-player)
Volcano
MiniVolcano, 4x4
MiniVolcano, 5x5
Regular Volcano
MegaVolcano
Compass Volcano
UberVolcano(*)
Pride Volcano(*)
Blockade
Martian Backgammon
Twin Win (Rainbow and Xeno)
Zamboni Wars
UberMartian Coasters
Timelock(*)
Rotationary(*)
Martian Tic-Tac-Toe(*)
More to follow...

(*) indicates a new scenario

Unfortunately, due to the nature of Cyberboard, turnless games such as Icehouse and IceTowers cannot be played using Cyberboard. Also, Cyberboard currently has a limit of 8 players.

I haven't quite worked out how Zendo will be played when Master or Mondo is called. Perhaps a separate email to the Master with the guess would work. Any suggestions would be welcome.

If any Rabbit is interested in betatesting the gamebox and any (or all) of these scenarios, please email me at jd4556@yahoo.com.

Please note that at this time, there is no Mac version of Cyberboard, only a Windows version, nor do I know if there will be a Mac version. I certainly hope so as it's an awesome PBEM gaming system.
