The Scared Donkey Mine Money Game Project –

We are going to make a board game into a video game. You want to come along and watch us do it?

Well, put on your “Get Along” face and donate today for our Scared Donkey Mine Money Game to become the world’s best number one new kind of exciting game and gaming play. It is a board game now by an inventor who is a grandma like our spokesman. You’ll love her. You’ll hate her.

But with your money, she will put this board game into a video game that you will get to see happening as it happens with updates, secret invites to streaming and video content of team and project development sessions, be the earliest beta version testers and help grandma get the kinks out to make this the smoothest, most seamless running game being done today (with hyperdrive) – no, not really hyperdrive.

Let’s Put Together A Seamless, Amazing Video Gaming Experience For This Game –

We’re up against the greatest teams in gaming development who are already in place making the games we will be standing next to in the marketplace.

They’ve got their geekdoms all set up so we are gonna need your help.

Donations give us the money to pay for code to be written and to hire our own team of people who will take this board game and make it come alive.

Explore the various mines with their valuables in a walk-through style gaming play –

With worlds of the Scared Donkey Mine and other mines you can explore, trade, change and build on its potentials to be mined of valuables in the best way possible. It’s fun!

Find the secret vein of riches in the mines that no one ever knew about and find the costs and ways to mine it before the other players and without King Pindick and his conniving buddies finding out.

You need to play this game at least once, but every time it is played, it is different in what combinations of actions will work as the valuables change value and the mines offer different yields – and learn more about how money works in the real world and about mining your own resources than you would ever be able to figure out some other way.

Don’t Look Now But King Pindick Thinks He Can Mine His Mines Without Your Help –  

    (he is in for a shock because it turns out he is wrong about that)-

Join us in the worlds of the Scared Donkey Mine Money Game. Follow our story as King Pindick discovers that his vast resources cannot help him unless he gets others to find, harvest (mine), and profit also from the mines.

Just take a moment to help Granny D assess the mining operations that No Help Hannah and No Help Harvey are using for King Pindick’s service while robbing him at every turn.

Take on the challenge of finding and mining in the most power-giving and profitable ways possible from your choice of mines, operations and markets for their valuables based on making the best possible set of factors and deals with the King and his cohorts.

Find yourself in the worlds of the mines and assess their potential riches, see the mine operations to decide on how to invest in making better and more efficient returns of their potential money-making.

Be The Wheeler Dealer You Know Yourself To Be And Try Out What You Think Works –

Make the trade deals on the trading markets to get better returning mine operations or more profitable mining equipment or mines with larger payloads of valuable resources, that you must discover by exploring and comparing their riches in the changing markets values for them.

Fight off King Pindick’s conniving cousins and his current mine operators, No Help Hannah and No Help Harvey as they try to sneak in and take the mine and its proceeds from you and other players. Make deals and alliances among the other mine owners to stop them or divert their interests to something else and some other group of resources. It can be very tricky and take a bit of sneaking and conniving back on them, since they are pretty slick but very lazy and greedy as they try and get King Pindick’s permission to take the mines away from you and other players.

Play with others or play alone, but remember – in this game, strategy wins.

The Scared Donkey Mine Money Game is a board game created over twenty-five years ago by CricketDiane. You can view more of her art, designs, blogs and things by googling cricketdiane as one word.

It takes anywhere from $20 million dollars to develop a top tier video game to a low of $200K if some of the programming can be done by the game’s founders. (add link to those facts.)

Our goal is to raise $3 million dollars for developing this video game through online crowdfunding and other sources to get the game made and into the market.

This campaign is raising funds to take the Scared Donkey Mine Money Game from a board game and make it into a video / online game with a cost of doing that of two years and very likely, about $3 million dollars. The GoFundMe campaign you see here is part of that fundraising effort to develop the video game.

Join us by donating today and let’s help Granny D up her game into the 21st century!

What it is to Create and Invent

Re-post from the CricketDiane Weblog 2008

Standing At The Threshold About To Create –
By Cricket Diane C Phillips, 2008

When I stand on the threshold about to create – entire universes stretch out before me.

Behind me is everything I’ve ever created or wanted to create. Before me is everything that could be created. To either side is everything that exists which has been created by someone already both historically and currently.

Above me are all the things and ideas that have existed only as possibilities and have yet to be created. And, below the edge of the threshold is everything that exists now somewhere.

From the vantage point of this moment in time standing on the threshold about to create, any combination can be made from what is beyond it. Sometimes I choose a goal before entering this threshold because I intend to create something for a particular person or situation and want it to suit that.

To me, the threshold of about to create is like an open door frame standing in the midst of infinity. It is an infinity that moves out in all directions and is filled with possibilities, knowledge, skills, ideas and tangible things already created somewhere, sometime by God, nature or someone. It is all available for me to utilize or create or combine into something new, or rework, refine and modulate into my own creation.

I do usually start with a purpose but not always. And, where some may go timidly over that threshold, I love to stand on the threshold encompassing it all then fling myself into it. I take a leap of flight into that place and soar through its realms.

I love flying through the elements that are there, choosing from them, considering elements that catch my attention and weaving what is being created as I go. I don’t forcibly keep my goal in mind but it is there and I don’t exclude anything. It is all available regardless of my mind’s constraints of limitations and resources.

This means that whether I have the means to acquire something or not doesn’t matter – it is still available for me to use in the creative process. I don’t exclude things because of limitations currently in my life. Anything can be acquired if its really needed to accomplish creating something.

Some people strive within their limitations to accomplish and to create. They exclude what is beyond this threshold that cannot be accommodated by their current means to acquire it. Usually that is whole worlds of things and believe me, it is an unnecessary constraint. I ignore my limitations of known quantities that are currently in my life and offer everything to the creative process without limitation.

Truth is, I can probably get my hands on it if I need it to work with anyway. There is no project too big, too complex or too out of reach to consider. I don’t feel I have to make and original and unique creation of my own exclusively. Mostly I do, but it is not limited to that and it isn’t a requirement of the process.

What I do is to fly through these infinite worlds beyond the threshold and test, play, choose, combine, study, consider and add together like things and unlike things until I’ve created something that suits my purpose. So, the purpose that brought me to the threshold does define what is being created but it isn’t required to have that definition. It can be done without form or definition set ahead of time. I love doing this too when I have no purpose in mind and want to free-form create. What is done in this process may become a painting, an idea, a writing, a musical composition, an invention, a situation or a project but it does beome an end result that is tangible.

I can set parameters and conditions if I want like, “I want something that will do this,” or “I want some things that will suit this or this person.” The process will use that variable to compare and work with everything beyond the threshold as I create. When I happen upon something that doesn’t fit that parameter, if it has taken my notice – I grab it too and bring it with me. I don’t try to figure out how it fits or whether it belongs to some other project or need I have. Later, it usually becomes obvious without me setting my mind on figuring it out or sorting it out to where it belongs.
