I recently completed a design for a board game. Unfortunately it’s not an official product, but a fan made spinoff of the popular Ticket to Ride game.
While the standard Ticket to Ride map features one major country (or continent, depending on the map), as you can see this version features 3 copies of the UK. It represents 3 “Centuries” – 1895, 1995, and 2095 – with elements of Time Travel added into the game.
It can be tricky to design a board game. You have a lot of information to represent clearly in a limited amount of space; and it has to be functional and leave room for players to place trains. In addition, you have the sets of cards which carry their own details; in this case, destination cities and times and a point value.
If you head over to www.islaythedragon.com you can find out more about Ticket to Ride and this fan-made variation.
