board game design // 1

the object of this assignment is to take a well-known game and alter its rules in a significant way. i chose the board game SORRY! because i found an (incomplete) box of it at a thrift shop for 50 cents.

the changes i made turned it into what is essentially a reverse SORRY!—while the object of the original game is normally to knock out other opponents in your slide-pursuit quest around the board and back home, in any situation where you are about to send an opponent to the starting position, you politely excuse yourself, say “sorry” (sincerely!), and send yourself back home. some working titles are “SORRY! (but actually though),” “Canadian Sou-rry,” and “PARDON.”

now that i’ve changed the game conceptually, i just need to change it aesthetically. having a physical board and pieces from an existing game (craftsmanship is already solid!) will be an incredibly useful foundation for graphic alterations.
