Commentary:

The objective was to create a Greek themed board game from scratch in 6 months. Our trainers gave us specific constrains like Greek theme, minimum of 4 players, and minimum of 20 minutes of game play.

The core focus was to blend luck factor of rolling the dice and creating strategic gameplay using classic rock,paper, scissor power ups . Producing the board game from scratch was fun as it was one of the first long project experience I had in making a game.
