I just dug this one out, it was purely a note in a book saying:
"Rogue trooper - 2000ad. Tactical game possibility. GI's are cool but imbalance"

Now looking at the name I'm thinking maybe a Noughts and Crosses (Tic tac toe) style battle game.
That was far too simple even for lil ole me. Current design concepts run along the lines of a sector conquest game, think "RISK" in a BIO- RAD - CHEM Zone

Suit up people, lets get those Drogging Norts!

I can't put it any more succinctly, I have started a project using UK's premier Crowd funding site, to try and get enough backing to get the game made, with all its custom Dice, whistles and bells.
The project is currently being evaluated, so fingers crossed.
If anyone, and I hope people do donate the rewards are as follows:

£1-£5 - Our thanks and a personal thank you on our web blog + Email updates to any further releases.
£6-£10 - Email of our game CARD QUEST (Never before released) + all the above.
£11-£20 - ALL THE ABOVE + Personalized Autographed laminated A5 trading card poster (picture of Backer req.)
£21 - £25 - All the above + Email copy of A.X.E.
£26 +AGAIN ALL THE ABOVE, But you get a signed copy of A.X.E. and its custom Dice.

There may even be a T Shirt.

What is Purple Crayon Creations?

I am a gamer, Board games, Live roleplay but mostly Tabletop role play games. playing for25 years (damn! I'm old).
When I first started playing at school, even way back then the cost of games was expensive and we couldn't afford the stuff we wanted or the games we wanted to play just didn't exist.

While at High school during our Lunch times, thanks to a friendly English teacher who also did the lunch Chess club, she saw the potential for Story games and allowed us to share her club. We decided to write a few games, Hitch hikers Guide to the Galaxy being one, and my favourite written by my friend Duncan was one where we played robots ala ABC warriors.

Since then Love lives, real life etc took over, but at heart I was still a gamer, Always a wad of paper or Notebook to hand. Recently I helped my Grand daughter make a board game for her homework and we nicknamed the company Purple Crayon Creations.  But this as well as meeting Charlie Warren of Semi retired Gamer blogspot, got me thinking (you know pictures with headaches).I have so many Ideas and notes I should elaborate on them, expand and maybe if possible get them made.One thing you wont find with my games, Expansive rulesets, tables etc. I loath them I never like Rolemaster (the name even put me off), but if you like simple, quick, beer and Pretzel style games think Purple Crayon.
