Challenge: Day 3/30

Day 3 of the 30 days, 30 ideas challenge where I create 30 ideas for games over the next 30 days. See other days here.

The Town

Edit: Now being developed as a full board game! Follow along here, or pledge $1 to get it when it’s completed!

Game type: Hex/Square based board game

Length:30 mins?

Idea:

Sawmill game tile

Placeholder images everywhere!

Hex based building game. Rather than placing fields or villages etc in Carcassone etc, players work together to build a mediaeval town gaining points for how well buildings interact. Could be based on a whole town, or with players linking their own buildings together, eg players start building resource buildings and then make mills, bakeries etc that make a per turn profit. Being hex based means the game would have a set end when the pieces run out.
