We have rapidly developed a brand new CASUAL card game utilizing the military rank system from Living Starship:
The game plays quickly and is very easy to learn. It is made of a deck of 98 hexagonal cards of 7 suits (one for each Division in the Fleet: Agency, Engineering, Flight, Health, Operations, Science and Tactical) and each suit has 14 cards - 7 Officers and 7 Enlisted.
The object of the game is to collect the most JOB tokens by playing the highest rank card from your hand. Once all the job tokens have been claimed, points are totaled and a new job starts with one additional token added to the set.
The deck is also has 7 SETBACK cards in it. When one is drawn all the unclaimed tokens of one color are removed from the job. If there are none to remove, the job is over. The game ends immediately when the 7th Setback card is drawn.
We’ll be demoing this game along with the full Living Starship Board Game all day this Saturday at Denver’s Starfest Convention.

We will be running demos of the basic game all weekend so make plans now (plus you can meet all sorts of TV and Movie famous-folk). Here's a peek at how the character card redesign is shaping up.

Available now - the full print version of 7 Sign Circle at the print-on-demand service, The Game Crafter. We elected to go with a smaller box (than the prototype pictured here) to lessen the overall cost of the game.
That does mean, however, that there is no copy of the circle mat (it won't fit) but it’s by no means needed to play any of the games as you can lay out the cards and tokens in a circle anywhere. But you can print out a copy HERE on your own printer (click on the circle image for a full-resolution rendering).
Plus we are working on a live pub game version utilizing the 7 Sign Circle set with some Denver Breweries. Stay tuned for more details emerge.

There are rules posted in the updated PDF for a new 7 Sign Circle game called Scion. Can you be the first in your magic-user academy class to master magic aspected to 2 of the eleven signs?
Maybe you’ll become the Ghost Scion by mastering Spirit and Dream magic or the Grave Scion by combining Blood and Stone magic!

The card files and rules for 7 Sign Circle are available for FREE download at DriveThruCards. This is the print-and-play version, meaning you’ll need to print and cut out the card files to make your own deck.

Fun news! We’re rapid-developing a new card game called 7 Sign Circle by Layman Kingsford. Normally, game design takes months or even years for us but this one just sprang to mind and was put into Alpha-version action in 2 days!
7 Circle Signs is a rummy-like game of hand management and set collection. It is elementary to learn but has scads of deeper possibilities what with there being 11 suits of 11 cards each pulled from the Living Empires setting (with versions of this game still being played 3,000 years later by inhabitants of the Living Starship cosmos)

Not to be a tease or anything….BUT….something fun is coming soon to Denver.
It’s live! It’s Crass! It’s full of cocktails and it’s all about the GLAM! You’ll get to play the game, if you have the sass to pull it off.

IF you place your orders now on our RedBubble store, you should still be able to get your Fleet regulation uniform apparel in time to play a crew member on the CSS Valiant Venture’s maiden voyage at Denver Comic Con in a couple weeks.
We can’t wait to have you participate in the live BETA test of the Living Starship game at the convention and get your feedback, ideas and your stories inspired by the one-of-a-kind interactive experience. Please find us in room 705 at the convention to sign up!
We'd love to have you participate by playing the digital/live-interactive game and become a member of the ship crew that will face some monumental events in the Citadel Galaxy over the course of the convention weekend.
Then...if you were to write about your character's experience through this opening chapter of the epic saga, we're hoping to publish the story from as many character points of view as possible!
Thu. May. 19 2016
Living Starship’s game app will immerse you in onboard life on the massive new ship-of-the-line, the CSS Valiant Venture. You get to make a unique character from 10 racial choices and serve in one of the Fleet’s 7 divisions - Agency, Health, Science, Tactical, Flight, Engineering and Operations.
The first public BETA playtest will be held at this year’s Denver Comic Con. Hopefully many of you will want to write about the story that transpires over the con weekend and help us make a massive fiction experience for readers. Imagine choosing from hundreds of points of view - a newly graduated engineering cadet or a master sergeant in charge of logistics or a naive tactical lieutenant put in charge of far more experienced enlisted crew!
Tue. Apr. 29 2016
Living Starship’s game app is progressing nicely and should be ready for the massive public beta test at Denver Comic Con 2016.
