This week is another Nice Games Jam! We got a prompt from Martha’s Boyfriend Dylan to “make a puzzle game that includes a written document that updates as you play.” You can play the game we came up with in the episode using the rules in the show notes below!

Rules for “Rules”

  • Two players
  • Some set of blocks (we used 10 cubes), different colors
  • The Codemaker comes up with sequence of blocks
  • They create a list of four rules to help the Codebreaker player guess the sequence
    • Rules cannot specifically place a cube in a place in the sequence
    • Rules can only involve one relationship between two sets of cubes
  • Read first rule, and the Codebreaker creates a pattern based on rule
  • If the sequence is not correct, read the next rule and have the Codebreaker make a new pattern based on the revealed set of rules
  • Repeat until the player has created the correct pattern
  • If the Codebreaker needs more than the four rules, the code maker then makes a new rule immediately, and the Codebreaker makes a new sequence with these rules.
  • The Codemaker can call for a mulligan up to 3 times total in the game so the player can make a new pattern with the same sets of rules
  • Scored based how many rules are needed before the code breaker solves the sequence
  • Some example rules:
    • 1. No same colors touching
    • 2. If a sequence of colors appears in the line, it must appear again in reverse
    • 3. Green cubes appear before yellow cubes
    • 4. Pink cubes appear in-between red cubes
    • 5. Any brown cube must touch a dark green cube
    • 6. A brown cube may not touch a red cube or a yellow cube
    • 7. Light versions of colors come before dark versions of colors
