From mind to Meta. How to Expand on a Game while Breaking the Mold

Abstract: How does a development team expand on an already existing game?
We will look at the two community driven and committee led expansions to the abandoned Tabletop game ‚GuildBall‘ and explore the stages of development that the game went through. The art and lore driven approach employed will show us how rough sketches and concept ideas become a fully fledged ruleset and ultimately miniatures that can be put on the table. We will also explore pitfalls in rules design like over complicating abilities, the lack of streamlining across the game or simply creating expansions who break the game instead of the mold.
