Make a pitchThe world of card games and board games ranges from the simple (Slap Jack!) to the truly complex (Car Wars), and everywhere in between. Friends and families everywhere have spent hours playing, laughing, and bonding over these games, but have you ever stopped to wonder who thought them all up?
Yeah, okay. You're our customer. You probably have. But this time it's YOU. Delve into the intricacies of game development with Unpub: The Unpublished Card Game. The game comes with 54 cards. Each card features a possible game theme (wizard school), a core mechanism (route building), and game components (dominoes) that players have to use to craft a game idea. Each round, one player acts as publisher and uses an element from one of their cards to inspire the designers to pitch a game using two of the other three elements (theme, mechanism, components) from cards in their hand. The best idea wins a publishing contract (i.e., a point!)
