It's Freezing Outside, but the Game Design Class is Still On!

Today, in the shorter than usual time we had in Collaborative Writing, our group made some very important and productive tasks for us to accomplish before the next class. We have decided and finalized the necessary equipment to build our game. Also, we came to an agreement to use a long shoe box for storage and the lid as the game board itself. Realizing that no one in our group possessed Photoshop or knew how to use it, it was a relief to hear that there is a free, online, and downloadable version of it that we can use for our projects called GIMP. With all these tasks and plans confirmed, all that is left to do is put it together and see how the game works and what we can do to improve it and make it better. One good point to make is that even though a game cannot be too simplistic, it also should not be too complex to the extent where another individual will not be able to replicate our game with minimum difficulty. For this reason, our choice to utilize the lid of the box as the game board and playing field is both convenient and innovative.
