Create an original concept board game with appropriate game play accessories designed to appeal to fellow creatives.

Seven Magic Mountains is a conceptual board game inspired by Ugo Rondinone’s monumental public day glow art installation. This unique game pays tribute to the beauty and wow factor of this colorful anomaly. The sharp contrast between this exhibit and the mountain range in the distance is wild and unexpected much like the experience of game play.

Custom designed playing cards challenge your knowledge in artist facts, geography and local Nevada trivia. All materials used in the creation of this project are designed to be eco friendly and sustainable. The board is constructed from washable paper and is easily rolled up for safe storage. Each of the thirty three boulders are made from wood and are scale replicas of the original to recreate Rondinone’s artistic vision color by color.

What’s Unique?
It’s one of a kind! Straight from my imagination to creation. The large scale of the game adds to the fun and tactile experience. Washable paper adds a new and unexpected sub straight to the board game industry. The display quality of the game provides an opportunity to treat it like an object to be admired instead of stored away.
