All ‘Photographed’ Chickenfoxes:

Chickenfox Derby update: First Print!

October 6th, 2016 | More Blog, Card Game, Mixed Media, Photographed Chickenfoxes

I ordered a test print of the Chickenfox Derby game, just in time to take it to Geek Girl Con! It arrived the other day and I am really pleased to share it with you now:

Up until now, the Chickenfox game has been a bunch of hand-drawn cards tucked into card sleeves with old bicycle playing cards as support behind them.

Now, the game is one step closer to being real!

I wanted to have a playable set to take to conventions and playtesting nights, and have a reproducible set to reduce the risk of losing any of the original cards. I had to rush to get it printed in time, so this prototype has the original art, enhanced with fresh layout linework and text using a font made from my handwriting. The game also fits in a much smaller box when printed, which is very helpful!

There are a lot of things to tweak; a lot of text, rules, designs, and artwork to finalize, but it’s so satisfying to see the game progressing past a dream and into reality.

If you’re going to Geek Girl Con this weekend (October 8-9 in Seattle) please find me in the Gaming basement and give it a try! I’ll try to tweet my location on Twitter to make it easier to find me.

Introduction to Chickenfox Derby

September 23rd, 2016 | More Blog, Card Game, Mixed Media, Photographed Chickenfoxes

In February, I started working on the Chickenfox Game! I’ve been wanting to make a game for a while, and after a weekend with friends in a snowy cabin, the concept started pulling together.

It’s currently in an playable alpha (not yet beta) while I expose it to playtesting and refine the rulebook and wording on the cards.

Here’s the current introduction:

CHICKENFOX DERBY

Chickenfox racing clubs from around the island are gathered to compete against each other in the ultimate Chickenfox Derby race.

Chickenfox Derby racing is an intense running sport with high stakes and big rewards. The racers are running as fast as they can, and you are their pace-keeper. Your job is to tell them when to turn so that they can stay on the road as much as possible. But Chickenfoxes aren’t afraid to play dirty. They steal points, force each other off the road, and sabotage whenever they can get away with it.

Each running club has three racers and a shared pool of backup racers that can tag in to help maximize their scores. The club that covers the most ground at the end of the meetup wins!

The chickenfox poses with some fabulous Blacksad cosplayers during ECCC. Not gonna lie, we saw them taking pictures and lurked around until they were done – too cool! Adding another must-read to my comics list.

Thank you for taking time from the convention to pose for me!

I didn’t mean to fall behind on my ECCC posts :( but there’s no better time to catch up and finally post this entry than during Pride month!

The Chickenfox was dazzled by these cosplay queens at ECCC, and super excited that they stopped for a picture!

Thank you for not truth-lassoing or Canary-crying me!

The Chickenfox posed with the giant Funko Pop Groot at ECCC! This was fun to draw… not actually cosplay in the least but still fun!

It’s always weird to me when other people standing by take pictures of the Chickenfox posing… I don’t think they know what he is or why or anything, so I wonder what they think when they look at the photos later… if you’re one of those people, share your pictures with me!

There was a lot of buzz at ECCC about the upcoming Suicide Squad movie! The Chickenfox found these great Harley Quinn and Katana cosplayers and had to find out what the hype was about!

ZorgLeeloo

I was a little timid on my first day of ECCC, I didn’t want to bother the cosplayers because they all looked like they were bustling around doing their own thing. But we took a break outside and spotted these two cosplayers, completely unrelated. They slowly seemed to gravitate towards each other, and as soon as they ran into each other I scurried up to get a picture with the Chickenfox!

My collection of Fifth Element characters grows!

WeepingAngel

So this is a funny story:

I was guiding my BFF and her aunt around ECCC, and her aunt asked “What is SHE dressed as?”
We were in a big, slow moving traffic jam behind this Weeping Angel, so I explained about how this character was one of the most terrifying monsters in the Doctor Who canon, and turned to her to show how the Angels creep up when your eyes are closed.
When I turned back, this cosplayer whipped around and made her scariest face at me and I totally jumped, much to the amusement of everybody.

She reeeeeally got me. HARD.

So you might say she owed me this picture with the Chickenfox ;)

It’sa me, Mario!

While Wario and Waluigi get plenty of love from the SakuraCon 2016 crowd, the Chickenfox is a big fan of the good guys. Thanks to these Koopa-combat ready cosplayers for posing for me!

Dreams are easy to chase, but hard to catch. What do you dream about?

The Chickenfox met this beautiful Olivia cosplayer right at the very end of SakuraCon 2016! What a way to run down the clock on a fun convention! <3
