elevation

role // design & manufacturing

elevation is a game of gravity. it is the world's first 3D-printed, 3D board game. players take turn stacking 3D-printed, tetris style blocks on top of one another. when no more blocks can be placed, players look down at the board from a birds-eye view, and count how many of their pieces are exposed to the top. the player with more exposed surface area wins! since the game is 3D-printable, it can be manufactured and played anywhere in the world.

biggest overcome obstacle: designing rules that take into account all of the edge-cases of a game-playing experience.
