Minion Games, 2009
Legitimacy is a fast-paced boardgame for 2-6 players, who fight to claim their birthright as heir to the throne of a magical kingdom.
I created and designed the game as a showcase for my illustration and graphic design skills, and as something strategic and fun to play with my 8 year-old son which would not give me a competitive advantage!! It is fun to play and has a unique mechanic where your character can switch from being good to evil, or vice-versa.
For legal/shipping reason, the game is labelled as suitable for ages 13+, but I designed it with my son wha was aged about 7 at the time, and I found that it plays particularly well with ages 7 and above, although there are a few references in there that are really rated PG-13. These generally go straight over the heads of younger kids, but more conservative people sometimes get offended, so be warned. It really works very well as a game for kids to play with adults, as kids always pick it up straight away, while adults are still scratching their head wondering what the heck is going on.
Here is video demo of the game:
