Did you know that when you roll two dice at once and add them together, some results are more common than others? By itself, one die has an equal probability of giving each result, 1 through 6. The die can only land on one side at a time, of course.
A common game mechanic in some of the world's most popular games is called roll and move. Roll and move is when players roll dice (or use other ways to generate random numbers, like a deck of cards) and use the result to move their character around the board. If you've ever played Monopoly, Candy Land, Clue, or Sorry, you've played with this mechanic.
Wanted to share a preview of the Crystal Quest box design with you guys! What do you think? I may add some clouds and give the art a little more room to breathe on both sides. But either way, all of the game components have been drafted up in one form or another. It's almost time to order our first printed prototype! 😄🙌
For most people, the word "marketing" brings up thoughts of greedy businessmen sitting around a conference table, discussing new ways they can trick us all out of our money with annoying ads for things we don't actually need. Bleh. 🤢
But after making a few games and taking Business 1010 at my local community college, that definition started to change for me. Business isn't just about making money. I'm sure it's the biggest drive for some people, but businesses also exist to fulfill the needs of society, especially those that the government doesn't provide for. Nearly all of the food we eat, the clothes we wear, and the places we live are made possible by a business in some form or another.
