Altar-Cation

A parody of reality TV and dating culture that will bring out your fiercely competitive side.

I was a concept and gameplay designer for this board game.

Drawing inspiration from the game-piece-sacrificing Up The River board game, the chaotically changing game objectives of the card game Fluxx, and the hair-pulling drama of reality TV, our goal for this game was to create a frenzied and competitive experience. Players take on the role of showrunner for a reality TV competition and orchestrate a race down the wedding aisle. Each turn, players choose between sabotaging each other or advancing one of their own contestants to meet the fiancĂ©’s current desire in a spouse: someone with beauty, brains, or bank. (Yes, they are mutually exclusive.) But strategy will only get you so far when the fiancĂ© could change what they’re looking for at any moment.

Board game designed with Rudi Vanzin and Qiqi Zuo (2017)
