Adventure Board Game Industry Standards

PrintNinja recommends keeping the following guidelines in mind in order to design an adventure game.

If your game has a story that focuses on a quest, whether it be an exploration or to save a princess in a tall tower, you likely are creating an adventure game. Adventure games often have large grid game boards that provide a bird eyes view of the world your characters are living in and a variety of resource pieces. Forbidden Desert is a great example of this genre and all its components have been dissected below.

If you’re interested in reading more about custom game printing, be sure to check out our custom board game hub and our custom card game hub. These parts of our site contain all the information you need to know about creating a board game or a card game – beyond just the standards listed here, these hubs also contain detailed information on all the types of materials and packaging types we offer for your game. We’ve also analyzed board and card games to figure out what makes them work – and how you can apply these principals to your custom game. Check it out!
