Week 5: This week we worked on play testing. During the play testing we discovered some of the game mechanics that were not working. We changed the game objective from collecting points to a start-to-finish game. The updated setup of the game is as follows: 3-6 Players roll the initial die to determine move order. Players can then place there game piece in any of the designated start squares. On the first move of the game, players roll a die to determine the number of squares they move. After moving the player will then answer a trivia question or perform a physical challenge in the designated sport the player is currently in. The difficulty of the question is chosen by the player. If a player answers a question correctly he/she will roll a die a number of times equal to the difficulty level he/she chose (IE: If a player answers a difficulty 3 question they will roll a die 3 times). The player will then move the number of spaces equal to the number of the highest rolled die (IE: If a player rolls a 3, 2, and 5 the player will move 5 spaces since this is the highest of the rolled dice). After this the player's turn is over and it is the next player's turn.
Over thanksgiving break we will finalize the questions and put the finishing aesthetic touches on the game.

Week 4: This week we continued the creation of questions and the assignment of difficulties. We also continued work on the box design along with the design of the logo. We finalized the box design to represent both the logo, board design, and the sports that the trivia is based off of.
