What the hill? Board game


What the hill? is a two player board game on land-forms and minerals based on the NCERT syllabus for children in the age group 10-16 years. The game involves mountains to block your opponent, power cards and tokens to activate special powers. We have made raised tiles for plateaus and depressions for sea. Six tiles in the board can be re-positioned strategically to win the game, representing tectonic movement. Also an etched wooden action die that decides which power card are you winning. The challenge was to make the game assets downloadable for a wide accessibility.

Integrated ‘purpose’ into game mechanics. Worked with the team on defining game mechanics and player roles to achieve learning of facts from the syllabus. A strong narrative and characterization was added to facts which made the game appealing to children.

Product and package design was carefully crafted to make it easy and fun for children to un-box, set-up and play or even come up with their own game rules. Just print and play.
