I've (for some unknown reason) have had a sudden urge to make a game. I had a concept hit me whilst on the verge of sleep that started taking root and I've begun trying to flesh out.

My question to you guys is whether any of you with hobby gaming experience would be interested in helping me out with this project. I don't wish to give too much away yet (builds excitement!), but PM me if you are interested enough to spark your curiosity.

For starters, I will say this:

This will (initally) be a Supers board game where one person plays a Villainous Mastermind and the other players are Superhero Teams (or members of one) trying to stop him. This will NOT be like Sentinels of the Multiverse or Marvel's Legendary, though I admit some of my ideas may have been sparked from them.

Sounds very interesting. Would it be like Battlestar Galactica where you don't necessarily know who the enemy is, or would it be more obvious?

It would be a known enemy. The villain would be trying to accomplish some goal (building a doomsday device or something else villainous) and deploys his available forces (be they henchmen, traps or decoys) to various locations. The heroes would then head out to take care of the villain presence in these areas, not knowing until it's too late if they are taking on the minions, walking into a trap or were just duped by false intel.

That's a rough idea thus far.

Sounds exciting.

I don't remember how to PM right now, and can't be bothered to figure it out, but I'm down to throw in a friendly hand, if you like.

Also, on the practical side, have you thought about kickstarting it? I have some influence with a large community of board gamers here who are all avid kickstarters of new game ideas.

On another practical note, are we talking already licensed superheros, or making up new ones? Cause your major cost in the first case will be paying for the rights to use them, and in the second will be getting an interested audience. Pretty much any other genre and you can go generic, but for some reason super heros always need brand names.

The supers would all be custom created. I would LOVE to see some of our (for those of us who play City of Heroes) creations: Crimson Scarlet, Croatian Thunder, etc

As for Kickstarting it, I'm just trying to get around to making it work. Still early development and working on getting the cencepts down. If at the end, this looks like it could be marketable, I'll probably do it.

If it turns out that a superhero theme wouldn't work, but game mechanics do, I think I could easily re-theme it to something else.
