Create and design a new board game as a collector’s edition. This board game was inspired by Grimm’s fairy tales. The characters were made by air dried clay and painted. The box and board game were made of wood and stained dark with gold paint for a vintage style. Using Grimm’s fairy tales as the idea, I wish to make the character real, that’s why the structure of the board game is rotatable, players will turn the board when they step on the rotate square just like how they are running in the woods chasing each other.
The structure with really detailed laser cutting and the dark stained wood with gold foil feeling makes this board game unique.
