I did a board game jam about a week ago and came up with this super-cool competitive collaboration geology god game where you gradually build up the topographical map of an island (on the back of a giant space turtle, of course).

I haven’t really done any board game design before but I’m finding it much more immediately fulfilling than video games: there’s a satisfying tactile sensation plus a nicer social experience.

I’m working on optional rules at the end so you can use the island that you build as the board for Settlers of Catan.
