My goal is to make a difference in the world, and I think the way to do that is through games. My education is in programming and 3D animating, and I have worked in e-Learning and game development.

Design for my first card game for my independent study

Perfect Lunch
A Healthy Eating Card Game


References:
Spoons - take turns drawing/discarding cards until you have a perfect hand
Sorry Revenge - try to stop your opponent from getting a perfect hand
Nines - choose when to end the game, make sure you have as good a score as you can but go out early enough that your opponent doesn’t have a perfect hand


Cards:

Orange (grain):
Whole grain pasta 2 points
Bagel with butter 1 point
Captain Crunch 0 points

Green (fruits and veggies):
Raw Carrots 2 points
Salad 2 points
Apple 2 points
Steamed Broccoli 1 point

Red (protein):
Grilled Chicken Breast 2 points
Salmon 2 points
Almonds 2 points
Tofu 2 points
Grilled Chicken Leg 1 point
Pork Chop 1 point
Bacon 0 points
Fried Chicken Thigh 0 points

Blue (dairy):
Cottage Cheese 2 points
Yogurt 2 points
Ice Cream 1 point
Milkshake 0 points

Black (wild):
Discard this card, draw 2 cards and discard 2 cards
Discard this card, your opponent must show you 1 card
Candy, discard immediately and end your turn

Rules:

Start of Game:
Each player starts with 5 cards in their hand (if anyone has a “candy” card they must discard it and draw a new card before the game starts)
Players decide who goes first
Players take turns with play proceeding clockwise

Each Turn:
Player draws a card (if it is a “candy” card they discard it immediately and end their turn)
Player may play a wild card, or choose a card to discard

Goal:
Collect a “Perfect Lunch” with one card from each color with a value of 2 points
Example: Whole grain pasta, salad, salmon, Yogurt

End of Game:
Any time one player possesses one card of each color, they may choose to end the game by playing those 4 cards face up; the other players then each take one more turn, and at the end of their turn they must choose one card from each color they possess and play them face up
Players may not play more than one card from each color with the exception that the first player going out in a round may play 2 green cards
Players tally the points from their face up cards and that is their score for the current round

How to win:
At the end of the game players add up all the points they have played, and the player with the highest score wins
