Would you sacrifice yourself to save your child?

In this family-friendly tabletop game, teams of two players will work together to escort their three baby ducklings to a new home. As players navigate their families through a dangerous terrain, the game challenges them to make complex moral and strategic decisions. Will you sacrifice yourself to save your child?

I created the game with James Collins and Timothi Lim. I designed the core mechanics, balanced cards, and iterated the game loop for this polished, commercially released board game. I created art and flavor text for over 60 unique cards. I additionally led and evaluated user research tests, ran the Kickstarter page, and managed fulfillment with manufacturers and distributors for over 800 customers.
