Yesterday's "Making a List" post asked for suggestions for other games which might fit in with the Shoebox.
Let's have a look at the comments!!

I've tried to keep the "notifications" as subtle as I can, but .. obviously, they have to be noticeable!
You can test them out in the Shoebox, by playing the Snakes and Ladders game!

And checking it .. often!
If you've any games you'd like to see in the Shoebox, let them be known, and I'll add them to the list..

As I sit and play the new "Party Mode" (Is that really the name for this?!) I'm starting to realise that there are still huge missing features in the ... feature!

Tried for the past few hours to see if I can get any vague "screen size" stuff to work.

Alan asks..
Did you ever read up on Nandeck? even if you don't use it, it might inspire you on your own ideas as far as bulk generating cards and such.
This would be for generating things like "Monopoly Knock-off" Property cards, "Top Trumps Knock-off" score based cards, "HeroQuest Knock-off" Inventory cards, and things like that.
Don't worry.. No inspiration is necessary.

With a little imagery on the buttons, things look a lot more functional, now.

You know when you're at the end of the day, and do backups and things, and forget that you weren't quite yet finished doing the Player Selection Screen, but it accidentally gets uploaded anyway...?
That!

Alan posted to the Board Thoughts topic, about the grainy pixelly nature of the scaled up board..

Shoebox Highlights
Since RSKGames asked for such a thing, there's now a single quick-ish loading page, which contains tiny snippets of update news, along with links to the actual blog post that accompanies them.
I'll probably do the Foldapuz and JNKsg equivilants tomorrow, as it took absolutely ages to find the posts, and get all those little highlight messages written!

@RSKGames

I was very lucky that in my first game I did not get into any snake tiles and got the help of one ladder tile to reach near the end zone much before the AI.
Yup, this is a game 100% down to luck.
I'd like to perhaps remove the sheer-luck, by making the moves maybe Card based, or something? Not quite sure how well that would work, and it honestly wouldn't be "Snakes and Ladders" anymore.
So.. Perhaps another type of board game in the future?

If you're a frequent reloader of Shoebox of Games, you might've noticed the sounds of the cards being switched out, about half-a-dozen times, over the course of yesterday.

The gfx in the credits screen has a very good looking swirling ghost effect.
And what a lovely effect it is!

I spent most of last night trying various microphone tweaks in order to get just the right sound.

I didn't even bother giving it a proper name!! You already know what this game is.

You can Play Shoebox of Games here, and you'll find Match-3 alongside Same Game, in the Extras section.

Match sets of three or more icons, horizontally or vertically. Swipe the tiles across to make matches, whilst trying not to run out of time.
