Yes! It's only one game I want to play 504 times.

The challenge: My design of a modular game building game that creates 504 different games out of one box.

There are 9 different modules (game systems) and I take 3 of them, put them in the order I like to build a new game out of this situation. So I have 9 different choices for the first position, 8 remaining for the second spot and last but not least 7 for the third spot. This generates 9x8x7 = 504 different games.

The first spot is responsible for the main game, victory points, game end condition. The second module takes card of the economy - the idea how money will be earned in the game. The third module is more or less flavor.

The game "504" will be published for Essen 2015. Now I played 144 of the 504 games. 144 = 2 times 72. 72 is the number of possible combinations for the first two modules (9x8). So now I have seen each of these combinations 2 times. Each time with another flavor choice (3rd spot).

Still a lot work to do, but it all works fine by now, only minor changes to be made, so I'm sure it will be ready for October.
