Climb Aboard With Liars, Theives & Vagabonds In The Pirate Themed YOHO!

3 Comments

Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate’s life for me! Well, that’s what springs to mind when “YOHO” is the title of the game. And that is exactly what Sabrewolf want you to think. Abbreviated from “You Only Hang Once”.

Brining a card game of deceit to UKGE, players are headed into a cutthroat environment across the high seas pointing fingers at the other members aboard the ship; as thieves of the stolen treasure.

This may well be yourself, racking in the gold and blaming it all on somebody else. The goal of the game is simple, rake in all of that gold by leaving the ship fully stocked, and avoid walking the plank for your dirty duties!

because of the way they’re boxed and the fact that it’s not a traditional fantasy game they’re easy to miss.

MOONSTONE MOONSTONE ALLLLLL DA MOONSTONE

Character for Moonstone, a thin plate tall, spindly man who walks around whispering into people ears either encouraging them, if on their team, or dipping poison into the opponents ears. He spreads lies and deceptions. He is strong in will power but very weak in combat. Her would rather think his way out of a combat that physically hit there

Moonstone competition, new character – Eilidh Guardian of Brigadoon a highland girl with a claymore and flintlock pistol, kilt and pirate floppy hat. They think her weak but she is plucky and fast with a glint in her dangerous eye.

My moonstone character concept is for the dominion humans, following the Duchess’s masquerade theme I would like a character names Kristen the daring, Her masquerade features a raven style mask and what sets her apart is her canvas foldout wings decorated with raven feathers, taking to the sky with her rapier Kristen nips in and out of combat. (I also love the idea of giving the character wings but a lil pokey sword for a weapon)

Aconyte Books: I’d like to read more adventures in Middle Earth besides the current lore. Maybe in different ages and some set outside of The West.

Or Memoir ’44 novels.

Has moonstone got a Leshen if not it should have. The battle system boards where great really liked them all. The warlord Sd.kfz 250 look a really nice kit wonder if they will do Hawk the Slayer next

For Moonstone, I’d like to see a young inventor, let’s call him Eddie’s Son, who wears a set of homemade steam powered wings. Somethings they work, sometimes they don’t, sometimes they go a bit wrong and send him shooting off randomly across the table. He persists though, as he’s convinced that once perfected, they’ll make his fortune, so he’ll not entertain the idea of taking them off. He’s got some neat gadgets for extracting moonstones, so he’s pretty good at it, but those wings make getting to them a challenge!

If moonstone is going to add a new character I think it should be the Devils Son-in-Law. His powers grow as the night comes on, also if you find his bride he takes -4 to his stats

I think that a fishing garden gnome type figure would make a great addition to Moonstone.
You could give the figure a card recycling mechanic. Something like “Fish” for a card by randomly picking a card from the discard to add to your hand; then play your turn/attack as normal. Turn ends with discarding a card from your hand.

Just as I was researching and about to take a bite into Dungeons and Lasers, I found this! very cool and would work so much better for my 40k setups. Nice coverage of the Expo!
