I took a class on game design, and the class was divided into two parts. Part one, create a board game. Part two, design that board game in Unity. I didn't care too much about the second aspect of the class, and ended up helping a friend with their audio project, but I did want to create a board game centered around building electronic projects.

It still needs a lot of work, but I feel it's in a pretty good place. You can see the directions to play to the left, and some of the later design concepts below. The cards are currently heavily based on Batman: Arkham City Escape.
