Festivals are just around the corner. Instead of presenting your family and friends with gifts like you do every year, how about presenting them a brand new board game? Come with a game that can make their evening even more fun and would bring everyone even closer. Sounds difficult? It’s easier than you can ever imagine. Have a look:
- Develop a style:
In order to come up with a new game, you need to decide the style of the game that you will work on. You can come up with a mix of two, be inspired by your favorite board game, convert a game that is not a board game, etc. You can even look for ideas and inspiration on Wikipedia.
- Pick up your pencils:
Once you have an idea or a direction, you need to sketch it out. This will make ideas in your head even clearer and help you develop the game quickly. The sketches you make should be understood by you when you would use them while creating the game.
- Get yourself a board:
To start with your craft, you need to have a base or board. You don’t have to get a wooden one, just draw a base or get a printout. The base will help you figure out the direction where you have to go next.
- Start with the pieces:
If the board is important to the game, so are its pieces. Once you are done with a rough board or a base, start creating pieces so that your game starts to take shape.
The last step is to come up with some rules and making the game presentable. View this process of creating board games as fun and use the steps mentioned above to keep your mind sorted. Happy holidays!
