Alright this was an older project but I don’t think I’ve put more time and effort into another project like this one yet. I formed a group and together we had to invent, design, and market a product. After a lot of brainstorming we decided to create a board game and named it Wayback Playback.
The main goal of the game was to get to the finish space on the game board. Players would roll a die to determine how many spaces they could move that turn. After they move, a player (other than themselves) would pick up a random card that would tell them what track on the game disk to play. A small clip from the song would play and then the player would have 30 seconds to determine what song it is and who the artist is. If they are able to answer both right they would double their move. Here some example of what the cards look like:
And here is what the board looks like:
After we built the board we cut it into 4 pieces so it could fit in the box. As you can see, there is a different type of card on the board other than the song cards. Those cards were called record deals and we had a lot of fun making them. Record deals were a chance to move forward or back along the board; coming up with the event on the card was the fun part.
My group and I put a lot of work into this thing. We went all out. We researched legal information to find a way around using the songs, wrote out and printed rules (then tried to get them translated), copyrighted everything and laminated almost everything else to give it a polished look ;like the cards, the game board and the box. All of which we worked together on designing and producing.
Here is a picture of everything together.
