As some of you are aware, my game design from the competition last year had some hints of Permaculture and the potential for more direct Permaculture themes. This year the theme and ingredients of the competition led me to create a truly Permaculture game. At the end of the day, it is playable, but still needs hammered out to be fully balanced and realized. It lacks images, since the competition only allowed me 9 days. I only just finished the basics in time to turn in for judging. If I were to continue work on it, I would probably refine some rules, adjust some balance in color (a game mechanic) and expand the list of cards. Just as an off-the-top-of-my-head example, there is nothing in there about graywater systems. Still, I am sure there are members here who would enjoy seeing it, so I thought I would share. Just click the image.

Cool game!  Without playing it but reading through the instructions it seems to have a good mix of chance and planning.  Where does it go from here?  Will you continue to work on it to sell/publish?  Did the scoring example relate to the image of the hex and echo cards in that section?

Glad you like it. I tried to make it as balanced as possible in the limited time I had to fidget with the system. As to where I am going to go, by and large I have generally made a point to develop a game further than the competition if A) there is a huge demand from people to see more or B) it manages to place. At this point, only one of my games has placed in the competition from years past. If this one places, I will probably work on it further.

It should, though I admit there is a chance of errors since I was pretty rushed on the editing this year.

It would be neat to see it fully developed.  Hopefully you win
