Hey guys, I'm going to share a little project that I've been working on with my friends. We've really enjoyed Tentacle Bento and have been playing around with ways to expand upon and potentially improve the game. To that end we've been working on a small expansion that we call "Double Major".

Image

This set introduces 30 new cards to be used in addition to the base Tentacle Bento set. It features a new mechanic, double-major cards. Double-major cards can be played as either of the 2 suits the card lists.

Image

There are 6 types of double-major cards: Cute/Sexy, Cute/Smart, Cute/Sporty, Sexy/Smart, Sexy/Sporty, and Smart/Sporty

There are 2 students of each type in this set, for a total of 12 new students.
There is 1 location of each type in this set, for a total of 6 new locations.
There is 1 capture of each type in this set, for a total of 6 new captures.
Additionally there are 4 new all-stars, one for each of the previously existing suits.
There are 2 new characters in this set.

If you're using the base set with the promo cards added, the changes to proportional deck construction are negligible.

Overall games last about as long as previously, but with slightly more captures being made by each player (Average score in our first evening of testing raised just over 1 point per player compared to our previous session of play without the expansion).

Since we obviously can't use any of the original assets made by the folks at Soda Pop Miniatures, I went ahead a made some place-holders as a "proof of concept". While the set works mechanically, illustrations are going to take a while.

As an added note (and as indicated by the cards above); this expansion and the cards in it will be available online FOR FREE so all fans of Tentacle Bento can add them to their decks.

I really like this idea...

I've done a little brainstorming on my own, and came up with a few neat ideas for new mechanics:

All-stars: I really loved the theme of the promo Candy & Cola, where once the all-star version of her is captured, the character version is removed from the game. It needs to be a bit cleaner though, so instead I'd like to add a "play" effect to all all-star girls, to make them work like character cards as well (and perhaps shuffle them into the deck, or at least the top few cards of the deck, when they're played).

Capture/room cards: An effect that goes off when a capture is played would also make the game a bit better. Perhaps not an effect on all capture cards, but a good chunk of them. I'm thinking perhaps rooms have one effect that has to do with what/how many girls can be in it, and the capture cards have an extra effect on the game if it's a noble capture. (In this case, I'd say remove the noble capture effects as well.)

Game end: Instead of going until all events are drawn, instead at the start of the game, count 10 cards off the deck, shuffle a "game end" card into it, and put those cards on the bottom of the deck. Whenever a card is shuffled into the deck, only count off 10 cards, shuffle them with the cards being shuffled in, and put them on top.

My group and I thought it would be a nice idea to add all-star locations & captures. If you are able to play a complete all star capture you get <15 points. Like a sexy all star location could be school roof. And then the cute location would be kitty cafe.

I am not a big fan of the split girl types fyi. But maybe add a teacher to the groups. When a teacher is played some thing happens that only effects girls of that class. Like when the swimming instructor is captured you take all your sporty girls in your hand and pass them to the person next to you in the direction of play.

Update time! Some brainstorming has laid out the locations and captures, with illustrations also on the way.

Just posting a little progress, laid out the illustration for one of the girls. Trying to see if I can style-match the promo cards.

I'd like to call DIBS on the remaining Cute/Smart girl spot.

Her name is Emily. Stay tuned for artwork.

Awesome project, btw!

Just figured I'd post an update with Kanaiko's newly finished artwork.

You know, I absolutely love this girl but something is bugging me about her bust. It looks really flat (like 2-d, since you know she's very talented) for some reason. It's moreso with her right one.

Actually find a girl with big boobs and have her stand like, it's pretty accurate. Especially if in a cloth bra or swim top (or no bra, duh), a formed cup will lessen the effect, but then they just spill out the top.

That's about how my wife's tend to look when she bends over without a formed cup bra.

For those of you who haven't been hanging out at the Soda Pop Art Contest, I present you with Aitako's character illustration: Image

I'm not really sure what to say; there's relatively little I really can do about without breaking style guidelines. Nor do I want to try and redo the whole thing to fix a single issue (that I really am having difficulty seeing tbh).

I actually did have to pleasure of using a model to test this pose out. I always believe it's important to draw from life, even if it's for a hyper stylized project like this. As for whether she is wearing a bra or not...

This is the first time I've been able to log into the forums in months!

I still plan to finish/redo Emily's card. It's on my list.

My buddy Chu helped me out by sketching up this sexy schoolgirl. I returned the favor by coloring her and making her into a card.

Marina's card art is done.
Image

After some preliminary print tests of the cards I've adjusted some of the text to hopefully be easier to read by removing the color tint effect on the game text. I may also need to adjust the colors slightly on the Sexy and/or Smart cards due to those suits currently having very similar looking colors.

Kitsuno and Kicho, the Sexy All-star(s) now have their illustration finished:

Fans of Japanese history will get an extra special kick out of these two troublesome twins.
