Board game design

October 2018



The goal of this exercise was to create a board game in which the mechanics used are two mechani-cards picked randomly, the one we got were: “Resource management” and “drafting”. And one of the constraints of this project was that the game has to fit in a 20x10cm box.

In our game, Ulir is the god of death, groups of adventurers fight in its dungeon to try to get to the last level and kill it.

It’s a 4-8 players game, playable in groups of two, in which the players have to pick a monster card in each level, launch dices to do damage, and pick up their loot to get stronger. The first team to beat the boss in the final level beats the game.

Teams and classes

The teams are made of a physical class and a magical class. Physical classes have 20HP and magical classes have 10HP each class has its own color, special power and equipment they can wear.

Magical classes are: mage, elementalist, priest, sorcerer. Physical classes are: paladin, guard, warrior and assassin. They’re picked randomly at the beginning of the game. 

The color of each class determines the color of the dice that the player can get to attack the monsters.

The treasure cards are cards that can be obtained by fighting monsters or bought in the shop with coins. In these treasures, adventurers can find equipments and potions. 

Each class can have a main weapon and secondary weapon. When equipped they add a dice of the color of the weapon to the player who equips it. Physical classes can equip a sword and a shield while magical classes can equip a magic dagger and a grimoire. When a class has its main weapon equipped, they can use their special power.

In the first turn each team picks 2 treasure cards and 10 coins. In each level, there’s a shop in which items are randomly displayed: they can be bought by any team when they arrive on the level before fighting the monster.

Monsters and levels

In each level, the team can pick a random monster, then fight it. To kill it, they have to obtain a dice score superior to the monsters HP. 

If they win, they get the rewards written on the monster card – coins and treasure cards – then access the next level. If they lose, they pay an amount of coins and lose HP. However, they are able to share the damage between them as they wish.

Each monster has a number of HP and a malus effect, they become stronger in each level, and the team can choose to go back to the previous level and get more equipment by killing easier monsters.
