This game was created as part joke and part trying to solve a common problem. If you have ever been in a group of people trying to decide what game to play, it can be a long ordeal. This game was meant to solve this. You play this game, and it will help you decide which game you should play. The actual tagline that we used in the office was something like, “The game you play when you want to play a game, but you don’t know which game to play.” For the design of the game, there weren’t many pieces, each player has a reference card and 7-8 poker chips. In order to appeal to more players, it was decided that there would be two versions of the game. One would be an Orc version, and one would be a “gamer” version. The gamer version included stereotypes from different board game genres. For the boxes, we wanted something that would be easily distinguishable between each game, but also make it clear to people that they were the same game. So it was decided to go with different colored boxes with just the game logos in gold foil and game piece icons that are used in the game spot varnished on the front. For the game components, we really wanted to showcase the artist’s work, so we also made everything in the box as art-filled as possible.
