Board Game – CAVE ESCAPE

Project Duration: 8 weeks
Advisor: Kevin Reeder
2009.9-2009.11

This project was to design a board game. The game uses a board as a basic play area. I tried to create a new way for people to play games together. The object of the game will focus on thinking and will use limited resources to achieve the final goal. The game should be fun. On the other side, the board game will focus on communication between participants.
