Getting a Good Start to the Game
During this three hour class, we were amazed at how much we got done in that amount of time. One of our group members wasn't able to make it, but we were still able to figure things out. Each person in the group did his or her job of thinking of different things to put on the cards for our game, which made the whole process easier. The only problem we had was we had to make the game board on Adobe Photoshop as soon as possible. None of us are familiar with using Photoshop, but we knew we had to take the challenge and do the best we could. We decided to work on the game board in class and see how much we could get done because without the game board, we wouldn't be able to test out our game and think of additional changes and ideas. Luckily, our professor took a lot of time to sit down with us and help us with the game board. He helped us a lot, and we ended up finishing most of the game board during the class! Next week is play testing week, and we have a lot to put together before next week. We divided the roles up by having one person finish the game board, one person create the cards, and another person create the rules. By dividing the roles up, this seems to be the most efficient way to work on the game without having to meet up over the week with each person's busy schedule.
