The Board Game Designer: Player Centric Design: Key Questions Game Concept:
Drone Beer Delivery
(1) What is this game about?
The game is about using drones and picking the beers a drone can carry max 4.
There will be a centralized location for first to finish or max beer.
So there are these huddles and paths like
- fire ring
- low bar to cross from beneath.
- High bar go from top
- Concentric circles so the drone is supposed to flip between the circles.
- a piped path like a wave shaped (transparent) pipe
- a triangle shaped huddle
- suspended swinging dumbbells
- high altitude
(2) What do I do?
You roll 8 dice pick up to 4/8 dice and collect the beer by passing the huddle and come back home.
So when you pass the huddle you get a beer and you follow the shortest path to from the Home circle to the 4 huddles to reach the fastest.
(3) How do I win?
You win when you are the first to reach the home circle for the drone you also get to keep the beer that the drone collected as other who did not reach only get the beer they have collected so far. So one of them might be a wise buy who will try collecting each as per his dice he does not win but still gets may be one extra beer.
This game can also be played with human on filed and them running and collecting beers crossing huddles maybe we can have collect your 4 dice faster from maybe 2 person game would be 8 dices. 4beer *4persons game would be 16 dices.
