Mosh Pit Dev Blog #3: Game board

Welcome to another dev blog for "Mosh Pit" - the tabletop skirmish game where slave gladiators battle it out in the arena! Today, we'd like to share with you a major development: the introduction of hexagonal tiles to our game board.

1) Simulating the Arena and Dynamic Fights

By incorporating hexagonal tiles into our game board, we aim to create a more immersive and realistic experience for players.

3) Traps and Random Effects

One exciting feature we have in store for "Mosh Pit" is the inclusion of traps on the game board.

Players will need to carefully consider trap placement and timing to gain a tactical advantage over their opponents and avoid shooting themselves in the leg.

Stay tuned for more updates on "Mosh Pit" as we continue to develop and refine this skirmish game. We can't wait to share more details about the traps and other exciting features that await you in the arena.

Until next time!
