Parcheesi Board Game
Parcheesi has a long history and ancestry from India under the name Pachisi. Historians believed that the game originated in the 4th century A.D. Parcheesi first appeared in America between 1867 and 1870, introduced by Parker Brothers. The game underwent many revisions and took many different names, but the aesthetic of it being a simple game remains. The challenge is to bring back this classic board game amidst the growing popularity of the digital world.
Revive the nostalgic values of playing board games by reinforcing the interaction between the game pieces, the board and the players. Take into consideration the design factors that make the digital gaming world so attractive. The final design is a special edition of Parcheesi, implementing a storyline inspired by medieval alchemy symbols, in combination with line graphics that simulate the aesthetics of the digital age.
