PROBLEM SPACE

HOW CAN WE BRIDGE THE GAP BETWEEN BOARD GAME AND TABLETOP ENTHUSIASTS AND CASUAL OR RELUCTANT GAMERS?

PROJECT GOAL

WE SHALL ENDEVOUR TO DESIGN A FANTASY INSPIRED TABLETOP EXPERIENCE THAT HONORS THE DEPTH OF RPG CLASSICS LIKE D&D IN THE FORM OF A HIGHLY REPLAYABLE STREAMLINED PVP/CO-OP BOARD GAME

DESIGN PRINCIPLES

01

EASY TO LEARN DIFFICULT TO MASTER

DRAGONS & DESTINY WILL HAVE A LOW SKILL FLOOR AND A HIGH SKILL CEILING. GET IN AND GET GOING!

02

EVERY GAME IS A UNIQUE EXPERIENCE

WITH A PLETHORA OF CLASSES, QUESTS AND A FULLY CUSTOMIZABLE MAP, NO TWO GAMES WILL EVER BE THE SAME

03

SHORTER THAN THE LORD OF THE RINGS?

OK...MAYBE EACH GAME WILL BE AS LONG AS ONE LORD OF THE RINGS MOVIE BUT NOT THE EXTENDED EDITIONS!
