Wrenna Dev Journal #1: Introduction

alternate titles: Hræfn, Wren & Ravens

This is a game I have been working on for roughly 2-3 months, and is almost ready to come out of Alpha testing.

The Idea

2 player abstract strategy game with loose avian theme - be the first to score 10 points by completing formations with your pieces.

There are 2 types of pieces, a 5x5 playing area, and 9 available formations.

A player has 6 pieces (4 Wrens, 2 Ravens) but are only permitted to have 4 on the board at one time.

The formations involve different arrangements of the 2 piece types (3 Wrens + 1 Raven, 4 Wrens, 1 Raven, etc.), and are each worth a certain amount of points (between 1, 2, 3, 4, 6).

This journal will follow my basic process so far. Since it's late in the early dev phase, some of this will be me posting my reasoning (or, showing my work). Later posts will be me positing ideas... if I manage to follow through with this journal!
