In 2017 I made a board game to propose with. The game required both players to trade and play cards, working cooperatively to reach their goal. Each had to gather 3 relationship tokens before each milestone. Once a player’s personal track was done, they would help the other reach theirs; ending on the box centre board. Each turn, the players draw a Life card, which either challenged or rewards them.

Each card showed a drawing of a specific event, with personal texts of fond memories. Each card belonged to one of four categories: travel, learning, sharing, and loving. The game presented the payers with the challenges of life, requiring players to self-sacrifice and work together by spending cards. Lastly, there are also Gift cards, to give the other player a special one-time boost.

In the very end of the game, when both players reached the final spot on the board – on top of the box – they win!

And of course inside the box is the ring…
