On Friday, October 30th, 2015, Mina, Jon, and Sal joined together to create the next great board game. This game follows the theme of air traffic and moving passengers from airport to airport. The board itself is a representation of the North American continent broken into the 4 mainland timezones. On the board will be several of the most prominent airports in North America including, LaGuardia, Newark Liberty, Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta International Airport, Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), and Dallas Fort Worth International Airport. The goal is to move passengers to gain experience points and the player with the most points at the end of the game wins.
The game will likely consist of plane pieces, card decks, a score card, and a board. The plane pieces will represent your planes and identify where the plane is currently located or what airport it is moving to. Card decks will allow for player interaction and also control where the planes go. The card will consist of passenger numbers and destination requests. They will also allow players to shut down another player's flight by causing bad storms or a plane malfunction.
As of now, our theme of aviation is decided and all other aspects are still up for debate and change. Going into this week, our work flow will have to be productive if we wish to establish our core mechanics for the game. Since this is our first time working as a group, we do not have any previous work flow experience as a group so understanding each individual's opinions may be a challenge, but I feel we are prepared to put together a productive work week.
