Rummy Runners is a new game by Nathan Morse that utilizes both our beloved hexpack and the completely compatible Mystique deck from nestorgames. It is a card-melding territorial game, in which 2–4 players compete to claim 3 hexes in a straight line, or any 4 contiguous hexes. Taking advantage of the nature of the hexpack, the board is modular, and the setup can be completely different every time you play.
Due to unforseen newb-ness on my part the hexpack font did not work with inkscape in windows. That problem is now fixed and you can grab the new file right NOW! (It’s in the [download#8#nohits])
Up until now you have downloaded hexpack as a set of raster images rendered as a .pdf. Now you can download hexpack as a set of vector images! Print at the highest quality you desire! [download#6#nohits] For those of you who want to get the new art but don’t want to deal with all that vector stuff you can print from the pdf instead (included in the file).
Also for your designing pleasure we are releasing a font and a hexpack development kit available for download now! [download#8#nohits]. Soon this kit will include a set of images that will allow game makers to publish slick looking rules very easily.
A BIG welcome goes out to all our new users, Thanks to Boardgamenews.com you now know we exist!
Fresh content is on the way! Within the next week you’ll be able to download hexpack with new artwork and be able to make your own hexpack variants! Also be on the lookout for some games (you really can play games with hexpack…) to pop up as well!
A few more tweaks! Hexpack has never looked so good!
Sign up at the forums (they are currently bare) tell us what you think!
The [download#1#nohits] has been updated to .8!
The following changes were made:
Resizing of the hex’s
Added 2 d6 dice stickers
Added a pawn
Corrected the numbers
We have added another hexpack – this time, Nathan’s – with a rather different graphical style. This file includes a complete and extended 12-suit piecepack, all the coins, pawns, and dice you need as well. Of course, it’s all build-and-play, but if you have access to a printer that can print duplex (two-sided printing), then the only things you need to assemble are the dice and the pawns. Just be sure to print on heavy paper, such as 110 lb. paper.
Additionally, Daniel’s gorgeous SVG hexpack file is getting fleshed out a bit more, so look forward to having two tempting options!
The first release of Hexpack is hot off the press! [download#1#nohits]
This version uses graphics from JCD’s Piecepack font found at Piecepack.org
