Hi!

My name is Alexander and I'm a Graphic and Product Design student from Brazil. I have always loved playing and making games.

I'm very interested in how boardgames can influence our minds and take us to other times and worlds. I like to research about how the rules represent and and indicate systems and themes of our lives.

In 2016 I won the Game Chef competition in Brazil with my game Focus, but lost in the international phase, so there's a thing, I guess.

I registered to this forum because I'm currently designing a cooperative boardgame as a project for my university, it's honorary name is Neighborhood.

In Neighborhood you basically construct buildings in a 4x3 square grid to gain resources to buy Qualities in order to fulfill some objectives.

It is still in an early phase, yes. Yes, I have been prototyping it. I would love to talk more about it in a further ocasion.

I guess that's it. Happy to find this forum and hope to make some friends and learn a lot :)

I love building games, and

I love building games, and the theme of building in a small, space-limited neighborhood has awesome potential.

Do you have rules posted? Care to go into the details more?

Oh, and welcome to the BGDF Community! There are some good folks here (oh, and Quest... =P)

Thanks for the warm

Thanks for the warm welcome.

I'm glad you liked the "neighborhood-building" theme! I think it's a fresh take on a classic and great thematic. I like the space-limited situation too, as it builds up some tension, making each little decision relevant.

As for the rules, I only have fractured chunks of them, but i'll try to post a draft somewhere around here as quickly as possible and make sure you see it.

Hey AlaxanderXy!

Welcome! I really like the wood pieces and the game board. Keeps everything together in a small space! Can't wait to see the rules!

Thank you for joining!

Joe

(ps These guys are great help. Post your rules and ask for suggestions, you will get really good ones! That's from personal experience)

Hey Joe! Sorry for taking

Hey Joe!

Sorry for taking long to answer. Thank you for the welcome, I have already seen your game, City Park, around here :)

I'm very looking forward to come up with a version of the rules.

Once I have them, do you know in which Forum section can I post them? Do I post them here?

Post rules in the "Game Creation\Proofreading"... That where all rule requests for verification should go. Or if you simply want feedback about your existing rulebook, etc.

Thank you,
