INSURED : The Board Game
Survive in one of the harshest conditions in the world of INSURED. Be it friend or foe, there can only be one winner who takes it all.
INSURED has been known by many names; some call it the game of death, some call it a new beginning. Many characters that were trapped in INSURED were not here by choice. Upon waking up, they were forced to accept the truth that they are trapped in a survival race that has already begun. To make things worse, the only way back is moving forward, which is to win the game. However, there can only be one winner. Therefore, they must either be the first to fulfill the game objectives or fight it out with each other to be the last one standing in the world of INSURED.
Unfortunately, that is not the only challenge they would be facing, because surviving itself in the world of INSURED is a challenge when every day is filled with uncertainty.
On the other hand, the players become the guardian for their chosen character to change their fate and guide them through adversity! With that said, players also get to strategize on which Shieldstones that they would want to loan to insure their characters from the uncertainty that they will be facing every day.
Although there are many ways to win the game, ultimately none can be achieved without your help. Therefore, you get to choose a character, unleash their unique abilities. Be the game changer that you are set to be.
Motivation & Inspiration behind INSURED
What motivated me to create INSURED was my walk with my God and the inspiration behind INSURED was to create a game that can bring forth the personality of the player through the unique personas of the characters. It has always been intriguing to me since young that emotion could influence a person's perspectives. Therefore, I'd always wonder, “How does a human make their decisions? Was it because of the emotions they were focusing on or was it because of logic?”
With that, the idea INSURED was conceived. Which presented to me the revelation to my question through this game.
INSURED comes with 2 game modes
Gameplay (Battle Royale)
Character cards - Different characters hold different abilities in which players will utilise them during the game to either obliviate their opponents, or to fulfil the winning conditions of the game.
Event Card - Event card will be drawn at random each round and every card consists of different elements.
Shieldstone - Shieldstone cards can be loaned to shield players from the elements of the occuring event.
Odd/Even token - Determines the round of the game, whereby different character abilities can only be activated in specific rounds.
Fate Coins - Fate coins will be picked at random from the fate pouch to determine whether players are affected by the current event.
