Staircastle – solving the location density problem.

Terry Schubring

Notable locations on a map are usually highly clustered where there are dense populations leaving most of the map empty. I’ll demonstrate the solution I came up with for a fitness location game you can play anywhere.

Terrance Schubring is jambots.com, a mobile app developer with original and client titles in the app stores such as Railroad Train and Sketch-by-Step.

Main Presentation

Taking an Indie Board Game to the 3rd dimension

Adam Rehburg

3D is a trending topic in the board gaming industry. Board games are pulling out all the stops to bring new experiences and excitement to the table, including the use of the third dimension. In this talk, Adam from Adam’s Apple Games analyzes the marketplace for 3D board game designs and mechanics. He then talks about the new challenges presented and the process he used to develop his latest board game, which is of 3D Sword Building game called Swordcrafters.

Adam’s Apple Games is a Minnetonka based indie board game publisher and makers of Brewin’ USA and Truck Off: The Food Truck Frenzy. Founded by Adam Rehberg and Chris Neuman, the AAG vision is to bring new experiences, themes, and people into the board game hobby.
