Main Design Requirements:
BOARD game: Many games nowadays don't use a central board. This challenge requires the use of a central board. You are to create a game where geography of the board matters.
Route Planning: A major concern in the game should be route planning. That is not to say it must be the only concern, but a significant part of the game should revolve around planning a route in some way, and therefore interacting with the geography on the board, which as we already know, matters.
Deduction: A deduction mechanism shall be present in some form in the game. It's your job to decide how or in what manner.
