Intial rendering of the game box.
Due to the small scale of the project, a box would have been unaffordable at the time to be presented at the Board Game Expo in Germany, 2017.
Compilation of the whole project:
Box, map, dice, game tokens such as Wind rose, Sampo and Wound, and an example of the 160 individual dual-sided playing cards.
Sales sheet for the game.
The game was first revealed at the Board Game Expo in Germany, 2017.
The first version was home office printed and cut, to get a hands-on feel of the product and note changes where necessary.
