i'll put that back after some playtesting.
the theme this time around is totally customizable, i can change it with no problems.


since i began making the game starz came out with the tv show so i figured i'd pitch it to them since their game on their website now is a lame spot the difference in the photo game.

andy whitfield (the guy who playa spartacus) has cancer so i'm not getting my hopes up, but it will still be a fun game.

Need to make it clearer to trigger the side-effects. Also, it allows you to press the trigger button more than once on each attack, the button should act as simply an on/off switch....

remember to clear your cache whenever i update.

i took a week off to crank this out but now my deadline for a project i'm on is looming so it's gonna be a little while before another.

oh... and thanks for play testing dude, i kept some of your input in mind while i was re-working this version.

fixed a few things.
plays better now.

things that need work:
-some of the special abilities
-resolve 3 and 4 (and 6?) are throwing down incorrect results for cards that
have been played.

after that's cleared up it will be presentable.

season 2 will be prequal:

want to add multi-player later.

single player is half way done.
http://home.comcast.net/~romulus88/sbs/game2.html

the layout has changed, now you can choose singleplayer or 1v1.

the bot chooses attack/defense cards but doesn't make special abilities choices yet.

(fixed a few more things)

Yeah, i was sad about that.

Hope he's doing better after all the chemo for cancer.
He acted the role perfectly and it won't be the same without him.
The new guy has pretty big shoes to fill. Wish him the best.
Let ye be entertained!

Not playable. When you select single player and then are given the choice to select gladiator there is no option and if you click select, get "not playable".
