Zoo Stampede - Submitted to HABA
Zoo Stampede was a blast to create.
Two 10 year olds were very active designing the game. Jolei and Devin playtested it dozens of times and kept improving the rules. So fun to hear them discuss ways to make sure the game was balanced! They even ran blind playtest sessions with adults.
The contest was to create an original game using some pieces from HABA. We designed the two teams to be completely different (asymmetrical) because they wanted to be able to switch sides and feel like they were playing a different game.
They feel pretty good about their chances...especially since we mailed it on Devin's 11th birthday.
