Yōkai’s a modular board game for 2 player.

My challenge was to do a modular roguelike board game .
The hardest thing for me during this week was to simplify the rules to balance the gameplay.
My first prototype was with square tiles, but it was not really working, the game was to slow, too static.
It’s a success because the random shape of the modular board is really working nicely. You need a lot of tactic and strategy to win.
Each choice you do, or the other player does , really got a great impact in the outcome of the game.
And what really surprise me , is the fact that the game is challenging and fun.
This game is inspired by “Hive” by John Yianni, “Zaga 33” by Michael Brough and the Hnefatafl board game.
