    Default March 2011 Challenge: Board Game

    So we've had a lot of different map challenges that fit the rpg mapping segment. So we thought that it would be nice to see some different maps this time around. And since a lot of people started talking about the train board game challenge (not on the guild) we decided that a game board would be nice to "map".

    So this months challenge is to make a game board. People wanting to do the train project are welcome to use that as their entry here as well, but any type of game board in any setting is allowed.
    You don't have to write down rules for the game, but hints of how to play will probably be appreciated by everybody.

    So grab your drawing implement and start making that board game, we don't care if its a game of strategy, finance, war, peace, bouncy bubbles or carrots. It can be ancient, modern or sci-fi (no ripping arms off if you loose though).
    You can make it for kids, adults, redheads, dogs or aliens - just as long as you make something cool

    And remember - challenge closes at 27th of march - so get to it

    Good luck

    What is this "train" project if you don't mind me asking?

    I don't mind at all... a board game company has started a competition with a price of $10.000 for a new version of the game they have - just search for 10.000 in here and you'll find the thread discussing it (and what one should be aware of if entering)

    So if the train board is a viable entry, are boards for other games that already exist acceptable? And what about modular boards, like Carcasonne?

    I'd hope modular boards are ok, since I'm doing one As far as other games go, I'd imagine that it'd be ok, as long as the design itself is new.

    EDIT: Oh too Rythal I would LOVE to see a blood bowl board -- I have been playing the computer version and its totally the sports game for me.... I would like it a lot more if the Ogres looked like the new ones...

    I made a board game back when I was like 12 and over the Holidays (two years ago) my nieces found it and we had a blast playing it. So naturally they wanted to make one of their own. So last summer we sat down and made one and I'm thinking of doing one of those two. The playability is only as fun as the contestants so you either have to be 10 years old or not care too much about the reality of things. I'll have to scan their lil drawings in so this will be fun.
