The question could be answered by another question, do you like board games? If you are like me and enjoy spending long evenings with many friends around a table playing games, then maybe you will be interested in my post! For the last couple of years, I developed a main interest in my free time that is discovering new board games of any type: party, strategic, euro, american, filler or abstracts.

I’ve been playing them with my friends and family, but mostly with my girlfriend as we spend most of our free time together. Over the time, we found different games that really caught our interest in the hobby and gaming has become one of our principal activity when we have time together! We came to realize that gaming is a good option to enjoy a night together, it is more sociable then watching a movie or a series, more entertaining and it requires more thinking as well, which I guess would be good for the brain. Games we really like include Jaipur, Takenoko, Stone Age, Pandemic, Tokaido, Caverna, City of Iron, 7 wonders, Aquaretto, Fungi, Viva Java The Dice Game and many others.

With the appearance of so many great themed games on the market over the last years, we can choose what we want to incarnate during a play night. The possibilities are immense and range from being pirates, knights, incas or even formula 1 pilots or space explorers. With all the choices we have now in our collection, we noticed that the games we play the most are usually the family themed games that are faster to play, but still contain enough strategy to keep adults interested. Of course we like the more complex euro games like Myrmes, Caverna, Tzolk’in and Puerto Rico, but they take more time to play and need a higher degree of concentration, which we don’t always have after a hard day of working.

That is how I came with the idea of creating an ant themed game intended for couples, families and friends that would play fast and could be understood and enjoyed by everyone under an hour of play. So, more than a year ago, I started working on this project, thinking of mechanics and ideas that would blend with the theme. After many hours of thinking, creating art, developing a prototype, a day came when I was finally ready to play test it with friends! Then, after 10 minutes of play testing, we realize that many rules needed to be adjusted or completely changed as is the case for most new games I imagine.

Several months then passed on cycles of changing rules and play test until the game was finally fun, simple and strategic to play. Since I am not a really good artist, the next step was to hire an artist to create the art I needed. But, how exactly could I find one? Talking to several people, they referred me to the website deviantart.com and I posted a submission for the project. Within 2 days, I received over 30 answers from studios or people who wanted to create the art for my game, I was quite surprised but really happy.

Looking at their portfolio, I retained several of them and after 2 weeks I decided to keep Gong Studio, an Indonesian company that had already worked on such project and had stunning artwork. I even had the chance to meet the director of Gong Studio, Angga Satriohadi, since I’ve been travelling to Indonesia with my girlfriend and friends last spring!

For the last 10 months, I’ve been working with Gong Studio to develop BrilliAnts so that the game would be ready to launch on kickstarter during the autumn. Me and 2 friends then decided to start a company to produce our own game and we named it Sphere Games. Now that the art and the rulebook are ready, we are working hard to be able to start the campaign as soon as everything is ready!

If you are like me and enjoy quick, strategic games that you can play with your girlfriend, family or friends, I think this game is for you! I hope you enjoyed my first post and let me know what you think in the comments below, it will be a pleasure to discuss with you!

For those who are interested, you can see more art of the game on the board game geek page and if you want to share any thoughts or comments do not hesitate to contact me.

  1. As one priest said: without God, you will be defeated. Even with God, but without spiritual education, you will also be defeated. But you will be saved, you will not go to hell :), you will be unhappy, you will not have the salvation from personal ones of all these difficulties.
    In order for a person to receive all the blessings, he needs to go through ten steps of spiritual education. Here is a brief overview and their meaning. 1. A person must understand that suffering will end when a person is with God 24 hours, like a tree in the ground, a fish in water, so a person needs to be with God. 2. For this you need to be focused every day in the morning and throughout the day, in prayer, on the search for God’s will, which is the salvation of believers (John 6:39) 3. Next – the solution of all problems of Jesus Christ, it is written: I am the way and a life. 4. If the third point is obtained, then Satan’s deeds are destroyed in your life, 5. Confidence appears. 6. The essence changes. 7. Are formed goals, values. 8. The Holy Spirit begins to act in power. 9. There are answers to prayers. 10. A person sees the causes of the disease and can heal them.
    Article. Why does a person suffer?
    The Bible gives the answer to this. When Jesus was asked, He said: in the beginning it was not so. And how was it in the beginning? In the beginning, God made man in His own image. In the image, not only external, but also internal. In man was the Spirit of God, because it is written: and breathed into him the breath of life. And in another place: The words that I tell you are spirit and life. In the first man lived only the Words of God. God blessed and gave to man: work – cultivate paradise, food – fruits from trees and any grass sowing seed, family – breed and multiply, career – fill the earth, power – dominate the beasts, health – breathed the breath of life. But when Satan said you will listen to yourself as gods and people, the Word of God left man and the spirit of the world, as it is written: the prince of the ruling in the air, entered the heart of man. From that moment on, the man was on the damned land, because it is written: “The earth is cursed for you.” Having lost the Spirit of God and letting in the spirit of Satan, man became the child of the devil, so it is written: “Your father is the devil, and you want to fulfill the desires of your father.” And now, falling into idolatry, man seeks the absolute, and is in the six states of the unbeliever. The idol of his life was work, family, money, power, all that was given with a blessing. Since a person does not find absolute satisfaction in this, he has mental problems. They are followed by traps of Satan: Alco, drug, sexual and game addiction, which act like a pill for a while, after which the problem is only aggravated. Then physical illnesses come, then death and the person goes to court and then to hell, why to hell? Because he is a child of the devil and goes to his father’s house. And this is not the end, the curse is transmitted to the fourth kind of descendants, because it is written: I punish children, for the guilt of the fathers up to the fourth kind. Smart people seek salvation in literature, philosophy, religion, good deeds, science. But this does not make a person happy.
    And therefore God already in the third chapter of Genesis, gives the promise of the Savior. He says to Satan: The seed of the wife (not Adam) will hit you in the head. How it works? It is written: For the word of God is living and powerful and sharper than any two-edged sword: it penetrates to the separation of the soul and spirit, the compounds and the brains, and judges the thoughts and intentions of the heart. (Hebrews 4:12) God came in Jesus Christ and with the Word, which is the spirit and life and breath of life, as we recall, penetrates into the heart of man and heals it from within, changing thinking and acting. It is written: But to those who received Him and to those who believe in Him, He gave power to become the sons of God. How to receive the Spirit of God? It is written: Behold, I stand at the door, and knock and who opens, I will enter and will sup with him. And when a person receives Christ in the heart, his spiritual status changes. Instead of the six states of the unbeliever, he receives seven blessings. 1) a person becomes a child of God. 2) receives the guidance of the Holy Spirit. 3) as a child of God, receives answers to prayers, it is written: If you ask anything in my name, I will do it. 4) God gives authority, as it is written: I give you the power to attack serpents and scorpions and all the power of the enemy. 5) God gives angels for help, it is written: Are not they all the service spirits sent to the ministry for those who have inherit salvation? 6) a man goes to heaven, because it is written: He put Christ in heaven and believes in Him, he does not come to court. 7) the person is in the plan of God, because, in this world, destroys the deeds of the devil.
    That’s the essence of the Bible in a few minutes.

  6. Tonight, Eric Newton opened my eyes to the future of journalism – to what the world of journalism will be like in 2110. I’m not sure how I feel about the future of journalism – or the future of this planet for that matter, considering the world will be taken over by robots or we will all be living on the planet of Pandora and surrounded by rather large blue people for some ungodly and inexplicable reason.I don’t know how I feel about this.At all…For one, if the world is taken over by robots, or even if we are peaceably coexisting… who would a news organization rather hire? …a human with all of our human problems and unpredictability, or a robot with no feelings and dependability through the roof? (Through the roof.) Also, the robots will probably work for less considering they don’t need to buy the necessities humans need. (Like food, for example.) They have no mouths to feed. They have no bacon to bring home. The alternative isn’t really any better. Pandora, really? I like Earth. Pandora doesn’t really seem like the ideal place to live. I need a Walmart and a Starbucks to thrive. That’s all I ask for, low prices and excellent coffee… and I doubt the blue-skinned, sapient humanoids know how to make good coffee, if coffee even exists on that planet. (No offense to the Na’vi. One love, yo.)And what would I write about on the planet of Pandora? It’s a rather peaceful place, I imagine. (As long as we don’t bulldoze it looking for unobtainium. I mean, really, us?) And I guess I could open the Good News Times, but that’s no fun… I don’t think journalists pray for bad things to happen, but hey, it makes a good story. You never see the headline “NOBODY GOT SHOT IN PHOENIX TODAY” on the cover of the Arizona Republic. I guess I could do an in-depth piece on the “mother goddess,” Eywa… but does ANYONE even know anything about her… besides the fact that she’s a healing tree that’s alive..? No, me either.Well… this is depressing.

  7. Its such as you learn my thoughts! You appear to grasp a lot approximately this, like

  27. This week’s Must See Monday,”A History of the Future of News: What 1767 Tells Us About 2110,” featuring Eric Newton who discussed his theory on the changing world of media. He detailed how the media changes form one generation to the next; from the Compromise generation to the Cyber generation. Also, his lecture focused on the fascinating predictions people made and the actual changes that occurred. It is amazing how so many people stayed inside the comfort zone of logical reason and would not dare step out into the unknown. The future is right around the corner and is coming closer as time ticks. Newton says the future is for those who “Think crazy!” The science fiction visionaries who are not afraid to take risks and be laughed at by the inside the box thinkers. His lecture was inspiring because it gave permission to be creative and have non traditional ideas. The world of media is changing quicker than it ever has before and in order to stay current one has to constantly be on the edge and try new things. This is where it leads into one of his great topics of the night, an educational “Next Big Thing” think tank! I think that is an excellent idea and should be implemented at the Cronkite School. How amazing would it be to have the best journalism students in the country spearhead an idea and network it across the country and the world. It will give students a new sense of ability and entrepreneurship. Eric Newton was a fascinating speaker and I look forward witnessing and being a part of the next generation of the media.

  31. Wo ist das Hauptproblem des Menschen? Die überwältigende Mehrheit der Befragten antwortete: im Kopf. Und es ist die richtige Antwort! Warum? Weil Satan die Meinungen, Ziele und Werte in den Köpfen der Menschen verankert hat. Das Problem wird durch das Lesen des Evangeliums gelöst. Das Wort Jesu Christi, das in das Herz des Menschen fällt, heilt es von innen her, verändert die Art des Denkens und Verhaltens. Und das wirkt sich positiv auf seine Umgebung aus. Die Schlussfolgerung ist, dass Jesus Christus die Lösung all unserer Probleme ist.
