You all know how much I love board games. When I discovered that there are contests for designing your own board game, I had to give it a try. A site called The Game Crafter is hosting a contest for an adventure game. I pondered that for a while and thought up all kinds of potential themes but nothing was inspiring me. Then suddenly I thought, why not go for something I’m really familiar with? The Mahabharata!
The requirements included that the location be a real place in any point in time, have a lot of variability for replayability, and be an adventure game. After three weeks of very intense work I submitted my game based on the Pandavas’ exile. I think it’s pretty good! My brother and my husband have played it and enjoyed it. If you’ve ever played Runebound 2nd ed, that was a big inspiration for me. It’s my favorite adventure board game. Though the most fun part in my game might be the piles of dice to roll in combat!
Here is the link to all the games for the contest and more info on my board game is below: https://www.thegamecrafter.com/contests/adventure-challenge
