6789 (Monthly Print-and-Play August 2017)

Download the game from itch.io

6789 is a little drafting game for 2-6 players that uses a custom deck of cards containing only the numbers 6-9. It’s built around the fact that, when rotated, sixes become nines, and vice-versa. I was going for a kind of “Arcane Fantasy Gambling” feeling, and I think I captured it well.

Other neat thing is that the art for this is about 80% traditionally made. The “dark” cards were done in my sketchbook while sitting in Starbucks. The “light” ones were done on a sheet of tracing paper scotch taped to the page. A little digital manipulation stitched together the half-and-half cards, and added the “Dealer” card.
