Taking a Moment to Appreciate…

The Weather Zen™ team is taking a moment to appreciate PrezCon – you! – and our vision of what’s to come.

We had a terrifically exhilarating, amazing (and exhausting) time at PrezCon. Due to great player feedback, we made a few changes:

  • Storm Tokens: At PrezCon we experimented with changing from a 3-part day (morning, afternoon and evening) to a 2-part day (a.m./p.m.). Because of this change, we needed 2-sided storm tokens and they were a hit! Players found them easier to move and see on the board.
Larger storm tokens on board.
Storm tokens are now larger, 2-sided pieces.
  • Event Cards: Early in the PrezCon week, players still had to play a card to discard it. However, if a player didn’t like a card in their hand they had to play it – and spend Qi – to get a new one. That mechanic just wasn’t working so mid-week we introduced a new rule: Players can discard an event card for a new one. They can then play an event card again on the next turn!
Event Cards.
Don’t like an event card in your hand? Discard it!

 

To You-the-Gamer: We thank you for your enthusiasm.
