A collection of the things I have made. Some of them useful, most of them not.


Polis

Polis: Fight for the Hegemony is a two-player asymmetrical territory-control board game. I'm usually cautious of territory control games, but Polis avoids most of my reservations. Firstly, it's strictly two player which means there is no kingmaking to contend with. Secondly, the game is exactly four rounds long so you don't have to play for aeons after a loss becomes evident. Its asymmetry is exciting, and the theme is strong.

I made the online implementation of the game over at Board Game Arena a couple of years ago, and recently went back to tidy up a few of the bugs which had been reported. As of writing this, the game has been played 6869 times.

As a big fan of Board Game Arena, I was really excited to contribute to the site. I'm proud of how the implementation turned out, I find it really clear to play.

Give it a try, and let me know what you think.
