Card Tracker

Post by brother_carfax »

Hi All,

If you enjoy playing K2 in turn-based mode you might like this little aid I've produced. It is a card tracker which allows you to not which cards you and if you like), your opponents have used and the weather tiles. Obviously you wouldn't use this in a face-to-face game, but it seems fair enough to me in a turn-based game. In principle you can see this information in the game log anyway, but I find it a bit easier with this. It's fairly clunky at the moment and I can see ways to improve, but I find it useful.

Leave comments on BGG if you have suggestions.

Yours,

Seb.

Similar kind of things have been done for other games, like 7 Wonders (Pythia aid). The staff is aware of it and since all is based on public information, they do not forbid it.

So this is legit IMO.

EDIT: just figured out I anwered 6 months after the last message… Woops!

While we're posting on old threads, just want to note that the designer and publisher of 7 Wonders, as well as the founder and CEO of BGA, have specifically disapproved of the card tracking feature in September 2020, and it was removed from Pythia.
