THE BEARD GAME    Board Game Concept

The Beard Game is a Trivial Pursuit-type board game concerned with ‘manly’ subjects such as beer, war, sports, cars, and dogs. I used ornate, hand-illustrated text for the logo, gilded the box with variegated metal leaf, and created cards and pieces based on items typically associated with masculinity, like liquor and tobacco, and utilized a color palette recalling rich Victorian fabrics and jewels. The game consists of a memory portion and a traditional board game, with rewards for taking on difficult questions and opportunities for one-on-one confrontation.
