Today is a thought exercise on game design more than anythigng else. If you were going to make a fantasy sports game based around the World Cup, what would you do and how would you do it?
The easy answer is to model it a bit on Blood Bowl/Guild Ball etc. and go from there. There are many fantasy American Football style games, but what would make Fantasy Futbol different from this model?
In addition, a board game “with models” is not the only potential way to model a World Cup game. You could also choose to do a card game, traditional board game, operational level, etc.
What approach would you use to kick this idea around?
