What Went Right
Being quite fond of Team Fortress 2, I wanted to capture the essence of what separated the game from all other shooters out there on the market. For me, this was how the different classes interacted with each other, and the teamwork that emerged from those relationships.
I was able to successfully capture these dynamics in my conversion, which makes the board game truly feel like Team Fortress 2, instead of a game with the same IP but different mechanics.
What Went Wrong
Because of my focus on team composition and strategy, Team Fortress 2: The Board Game can take a while to play. An average play session lasts around 45 minutes, but games can run up to an hour.
This is quite different from the fast-paced action in the FPS itself, so while my conversion feels like TF2, it doesn't play in quite the same way.
