Steem Monsters Mini-Game - Splinter Draft

in steemmonsters •  19 days ago


Steem Monsters would be infinitely more exciting if we had a few mini-games we could play, but as I have very little programming experience the best I can do is come up with a few Steem Monsters mini-game ideas.

So today I'll start with a Splinter Draft - Mini Game

And drafts are nothing new in the world of Trading Card Games and usually consist of opening a few packs and passing them around a table choosing one at a time, until all the cards are selected. But we could play a simpler version of a draft in Steem Monsters.

Steem Monsters Splinter Draft - Mini Game

(2 player)
(Allowed cards - Splinter + Neutral)
(Only Regular Summoners allowed)

  1. Choose a Splinter
  2. Choose a Level (Gold level will offer best range of abilities)
  3. Decide who goes first
  4. 1st person selects a card from allowed cards
  5. 2nd person selects a card from remaining cards
  6. 2nd person selects a card from the remaining cards (picks now in reverse order)
  7. 1st person selects a card from the remaining cards

Continue to pick and reverse order each round until all cards are selected or until both players pass.

Then you play a best of 3 or best of 5 match to see who can build the better teams.

NB: You are only allowed to play with the cards you drafted (selected).

It's a fairly basic mini-game, but given each splinter has 14 cards and there are 17 neutrals, it could lead to a variety of team builds.

And even if a player doesn't have all the cards, they can just select the ones they have.

So why not give this mini-game a try, and let me know if you think it's fun and if any changes need to be made to the rules.

I think if we can test and establish a few mini-games of our own creations, we'd have a much better chance getting Steem Monsters INC. To provide an interface for us on the main Steem Monsters website.

I love this idea. The hardest part would be governing it to ensure players abide by the rules.


Yeah it's only for fun so I think people will be honest about it. Although a fully automated game would be nice too.


I wonder if it could work on test run in the Contest Kings discord channel?
