Sirlin hopes to make many more games, including a fighting game[2] that features the characters from the Fantasy Strike universe he created[3] (the same characters found in Yomi, Puzzle Strike, and Flash Duel).

Games Sirlin has worked onEdit

Published by Sirlin GamesEdit

Flash DuelEdit

Physical card game [1]

Flash Duel is a simple, fast card game that simulates a duel between two Fantasy Strike characters. There are 10 characters to choose from (all included), each with 3 different special abilities. Landing just one hit wins a round, and a game is best 3 out of 5 rounds. Games take only a few minutes to play.

Puzzle Strike: Bag of ChipsEdit

Online and physical card game [1]

Puzzle Strike: Bag of Chips is a card game for 2, 3, or 4 players that simulates a puzzle game and is played with chips instead of cards (for way easier shuffling) and features a lot of back-and-forth craziness and wild combos. Choose from 10 Fantasy Strike characters (all included) and break gems from your gem pile and send them to your opponents' gem piles while customizing your deck to do bigger and bigger combos.

Chess 2: The SequelEdit

Downloadable and printable rulebook; a variant of Chess][4]

Chess 2: The Sequel seeks to build on the greatness of the original Chess while addressing a few problems and also going in a new direction. There are now six armies to choose from, rather than just 1, creating 21 matchups instead of just 1. There's a new win condition for crossing the midline of the board with your king (in addition to your grandpa's checkmates). There's also a double-blind bidding mechanic called dueling that makes memorized openings even more impractical, and emphasizes adaptation and reading the opponent's tendencies. Chess 2 is player with a regular Chess set and requires the Chess 2 rules (which you can buy and download from: www.SirlinGames.com/products/Chess-2-print-and-play).

Yomi: Fighting Card GameEdit

Online and physical card game [1]

Yomi: Fighting Card Game - a simple competitive card game that simulates a battle between two characters and is designed to test the two most important skills in competitive gaming: Valuation and Yomi. Each deck in Yomi represents one character and can also be used as a regular deck of playing cards with beautiful artwork.
