Battle for the Agora

Battle For the Agora Main

'BATTLE FOR THE AGORA' BOARD GAME

Media Used: Adobe Illustrator | Maya | Adobe Photoshop

This is a cooperative board game set in the Athens of Hellenistic Greece. This game is geared towards people who enjoy trying new types of games. The objective of the game is to get rid of all of the monsters that are attacking the Agora in Athens. Each player plays like a Greek hero and moves around the Agora enlisting allies and completing your labours and gaining renown. The gods are also involved in the game and will either help you along your quest or just be a general pain with blessings or curses. This was an interactive design piece and involves principles such as Branching and Nodes, Card Sorting and Gamification, among other things. For the research in this game, I interviewed Prof. Emily Egan at the University of Maryland and the map of the Agora was made by Piet de Jong.

The Problem Space

This project was made to introduce players to the Agora in Hellenistic Greece and to Greek mythology. This means it had to condense a lot of historical facts and religious information down in a way that would be enjoyable to engage with.

The Target Audience

My target audience for this project is people who are teenagers or in their twenties or early thirties. This age group would be more likely to want to learn about different cultures and places in history.

The Solution

The solution I came up with is a board game that shows the Agora as it would have looked during the time of Ancient Greece. Players get to take on the role of Greek heroes as they drive mythological monsters out of Athens. This is a cooperative game so players will be able to engage with as many of the Greek heroes and monsters as they want while enjoying a game where they can partner with their friends.
