Board game have been popular in worldwide for a long time and until now it is still one of the most enjoyable group activities for young people. The global board game markets is worth over $3.2 billion according to the research and the number will keep growing. Board game brings people together in one table with various cards and maps, people can bring their board game outside and play it with their friends at anyplace/anytime.
I start to play board game since middle school and it brings me lot of memory which is unforgettable, I am always thinking is it possible for me to create a brand new board game by myself. In this semester with my BCM300 study, I finally get a chance to create a board game based on games that I played before.
I decide to make a new board game based on One Night which is my favorite board game for all time.One Night were created by Ted Alspach and Akihisa Okui and it was published by Bezier Games in 2014.In One Night Ultimate Werewolf,each players pick a character from Villager, Werewolf, or a special role.
Unlike many other games, the real fun in One Night is figuring out exactly what happened over that one night, where many of the players performed some sort of special action.You’II need to figure out what team you’re on (because your role card might have been switched with another role card), and then figure out what teams the other players are on. To be brief, it is all about LYING AND ACTING.
With my own board game, I want to create a game which is based on One Night but with completely different rules,and this game will be fun depend on your acting and lying skill. Firstly, this game is available for 1-5 players(5 player as maximum), each person will have their ability cards and own mission. Secondly, I will cancel the roles card from One Night which means each player will only need to finish their mission which will make the game process faster. Although One Night is a really fun game to play, I still think it is too long to finish one game and people will easily feel tired . However, I think I still need sometime to figure out the rule of my game and it won’t be too long.
I will post the whole process threw WordPress to let everyone know that I am working for my project and I take this task seriously. There will be more post in the rest of the semester and I am pretty exciting about my game.
