Creating the second generation of the board game. (The first generation was a piece of cardboard with holes cut in it) I showed Catherine how to use the drill press and then turned her loose to drill what seemed like 4 thousand holes!
The big reveal at UnPub in Baltimore! It was a great sign when a group of players snuck in early and came straight to the table because they read about the game in the program and they wanted to be the first to play!
A shot from above as people feel their way through the game while trying to avoid the ax wielding madman who wants to kill them!
The newly 3D printed board that was so kindly printed by a good friend of ours. This picture shows some of the sample walls we were experimenting with.
Another picture of the new 3D printed board
Play testing with Uncle Mike (the inspiration of the game) along with Mom, Michaela, Lizzy and Aunt Maira
A close up view of the new board along with the new tree shaped walls
Another view of the board as Michaela decides which way she’s going to move.
Lizzy contemplating her move. She’s not sure how far away the ax wielding mad man is and she doesn’t know where the car is either!!!
More contemplating. She doesn’t realize she right next to the car/safe zone! Oh so close!!!
A full five person game. This marks only the second time Blind Uncle Mike has gotten to play.
Another full 5 person game. Except for the Hunter, they are all first time players and non-gamers.
The players were so close and didn’t even realize it.
Some more playtesting. The first of a few games after changing the way player turns work.
Neighbor Mike, who was kind enough to print a board without being asked, navigating the forest in search of the car.o
