AHOY! is a competitive pirate/ science-fiction board game that I designed while at university in 2016. Players compete against each other by successfully defeating sea monsters, battling fellow pirates, overcoming natural events and paying port fees all in a bid to be the last man standing.
Visually it was important for me to communicate the historical and science-fiction themes of the game. I focused on all elements of the game right down to the minor detail of the counters.
I designed and created illustrations, typeface, rulebook, photography and final packaging to result in a fully functioning board game.
To give the appearance of finalised produced, I created accurate packaging for the board game. I also included a logo of a board game manufacturer to help me in my quest.
The game includes six character cards, six counters, rule book, board, 80 tiles, dice, and tokens.
