Boards & Bits
I know that they want a game board and that the concept is to move a client through the design process. So cards could be used as event cards. But what I am wondering is if there is a game that uses tiles to move pawns through a board.
Carc was one of the first things that came to mind, but possibly the discovery where there is a board included.
What I see when you say this is a flowchart with a meeple walking down the chart in some pre-determined order.
What are the variables? Where is the randomness? Where is the skill?
IMO all of these are needed for a game.
