Each race will have 4 unique player cards that they can played at any time throughout the game. However, once a unique player card has been used they may not be re-used during the game.


On the world map there will be 24 sections on the map. each player begins on one section. Each sections contains different attributes that affect the players controlling those sections.

There are three rings on the map. sectors within the outermost ring provide +1 money and +1 political capital. The sectors in the middle ring provide +2 money and +2 political capital. The center most sectors provide +4 money and +4 political capital. Each ring has a corresponding price for a city square.

Outer ring sectors cost 1 political capital and 1 money. Middle sectors cost 3 political capital and 3 money. And the sectors within the innermost ring cost 5 political capital and 5 money.


Political Capital –  these tokens represent How much political strength your race has over the city. These Tokens are used during voting sessions  At the end of each round a player receiver political capital tokens based on how many sections they control and how much money they have.

Money – These tokens represent how wealthy your race is. money can be used to purchase sections, purchase units, and bribe other players.

City squares – These idols represent both what sectors the player controls and how strong a sector is. Once a unit has been placed on a neutral territory, a player may purchase a city square to place on the sector to claim it. Player may add more city squares to a sector to double the benefits received from the sector. However the price of adding a square is double for every square added. If a sector is assaulted and the assaulting party wins, the winner of the assault may place a city square on the claimed sector. a player must have a city square on the sector in order to receive any benefits from the sector.

Action tokens ——————–

Riot- will either: make an adjacent section’s attributes not count for the results phase of the round,

Bribe- Used to pay for tokens actions to be either routed or omitted (price of bribes are determined by the dominant player. Meaning the dominant player will all the bribe to take effect or not.)

Invest- will double money and political capital in section, depending on city squares

Expand- will allow a player to move one of these units into an adjacent neutral section,  or assault an already occupied sector

Riot and Expand token can only be used on sections with a unit on it.



Each player starts the game with two units. More units may be purchased during the voting phase.

each unit cost 2 money


The game is played over 8 rounds. The winner is the player who is the dominant race at the end of round 8.

each round is broken up into 4 phases.

1: Global Phase

A global card is drawn which affects all of the players. after the card has been drawn players may purchase units or buildings for their sections using either political capital or money, in order of there standing in the dominance track. once the last player has had the chance to do so, the round moves to the event phase

2: Event phase

A card is drawn from each event phase deck.(The number of cards drawn is dependance on the number of players in the current game.) The player controlling the dominant race gets to assign the card to a player. The effect of the card is takes immediate effect and is resolved immediately.

2: Planning Phase

During this phase players assign their political power tokens, and or action tokens to the board faced down without revealing their actions unless a card from the earlier phases is enacted.

3:Action Phase

The tokens are resolved in the order from the dominance scale.

4: voting Phase

Here players  may again purchase units or buildings for their sections using either political capital or money. Players may also vote to change influence tracks by using political capital. Any other trades or agreements may be carried out during this phase before the dominant race calls for the beginning of the next round.

influence tracks———–

Dominant race track: Player get the perks of being the dominant race and gets more political capital per turn depending on there standing on this track. the player in 1st position doubles the amount of political capital gained at the end of each round, as well as allowed to move their units around any sector without conflict.

Industry track: player get more money per turn depending on there standing on this track. The Race in 1st position doubles the amount of money gained at the end of each round is allow to purchase any sectors regardless of ownership.

Unity track: players  units get more power depending on there standing on this track.

The race in 1st position get’s a +2 strength bonus to all units, and allow units to move over two sectors.


If a player assaults a sector there is a battle phase. The winner is determined by the player who possesses the highest strength number. The Strength number is determined by the number of units on the sector, the number of city squares, and any special race cards played at this time.

all units count for +1 strength.

all city squares count for +1 strength

And in the case of a tie, the dominant race chooses the winner of the assault.

General events————-

at the end of turn 4 and turn 8 there is a mandatory voting session on all of the influence tracks. Players all bid at the same time using their political capital for position on the industry and unity tracks. For the dominance track players vote using their political capital. Players may not vote for themselves for this track during the mandatory votes, on turn 4 and 8 or on a phase card or race card that indicates as such. If there is a tie, the non-tied players may vote for the two constants using both their political capital and money. both political capital and money are worth one point, the player with the most total points becomes the dominant player.

Dominance Final – For Andrew Mortega


The goal of this game was to explore the social inequalities what have in today’s world that stem from the histories of different ethnic groups around the world. The game also plays to the heritage of the different people and attempts to incorporate these factors in a board game setting. Inspiration for this game came from the idea of having tangible race cards that someone could play at anytime to gain an advantage. As we go about our daily lives we tend to forget how these factors affect the places we go and what we do, and well often we do see people playing there “race cards” to correct what they may feel is a inequality. From Schools, to businesses and government programs race does play a role in the manor one is advised.

Though this game, I hope that player are able to experience how it is being on the bottom and top of a society and have a better understanding of those in different situations than their own.

Game Rules:

Dissociate – Final

All of the everything (including programming whoa!) – Katryna Check
— with lovely help from Kevin W, & Corey K

This game is about my experience coping with sexual assault. You work backwards through a linear maze collecting journal entries that lead you up to the night that it happened.


USE WSAD to move. Experience the Maze.


For the final build I made the following changes –

– I attempted to change the ending. Unfortunately I could not figure out a way to end it properly for the scope of this class. I did change the music and add a final entry that spoke on how I am not sure I can end the game due to not being fully over the trauma.

– I made the fire hallway section move a bit faster so its not as frustrating.

– The wind hallway is now longer for the desired effect.

– Heartbeat hallway is now also longer (would also like the intensity to ramp up but not for the scope of this class)

– I added music queues on note pick up but I honestly dont know if I like them so I might take them out.

– I fixed some of the notes timings that were off to the best of my ability.

– The end now just fades instead of being lifted up into the air.

– Added catcall sound FX and staggered grabbing hands more.

-Added a collider on the grabbing hands so the player would be affected by them.

-Tried porting to the Oculus but the note writing felt off so I decided to not do that.

Final Build — must be played in 1600 by 900 – (im sorry I couldnt get the aspect ratio to lock :( )






Collabojam Ideas

Again sorry.

1. Baby bird falls out of its nest…every time you fall out of the nest, a few birds try to help get you back into the nest.  Make it less difficult for them.

2.  Suicide cult – Jonestown comes to mind…but it’s all by handgun.  Not everyone wants to die because one out of four people realize what’s really going on and snap out of it at the last minute.  They must now try to gather together and save everyone that is good and kill everyone who is a controlling bastard that is out to kill you.

3.  The missing piece – based off of Shel Silverstein’s book, but instead of trying to fill the void with the right shape, the character(you)  try to fill the void by eating things, including other weird objects like yourself.

4.  Leap frog extreme – try to get as many other frogs to jump over the  larger out of place frog.  Levels based on amount exceeded.

5.  Cannibal hell –  Once eaten enough of other and get to a certain size, you are then up to be eaten.  Keep trying to eat others while avoiding being eaten.

Sorry its as far as I got.

Political Game Ideas

Sorry I never posted these, just never can remember when I’m actually online.

1. Shut down Congress – find any means necessary to shut down congress.  You are either a member of congress, a citizen, or a lobbyist.  You must figure out the most obnoxious or devious way to make Congress get into a stalemate and therefore shutdown.

2. The nuclear bomb – you have the only nuclear bomb in the world and you have to use it.  But you have to figure out where to use it so that there is the least amount of fallout and the most gain of power.

3.  Reverse harassment office – harassment by women has been approved to teach all men how they have and continue to treat women.  So women can say and do the worst things in the office towards men, but men can not say anything back but something sweet or kind.  Results at end are that men start flipping out in the most stereotypical feminine way combined with child-like temper tantrums.

4.  Femgames – women fully take over the gaming industry and put all the trolls in their place through physical and mental means.  All revenge is based on the trolling and their own figured out kinks.

5. Empirical worth – an empire is built, but no outside influences are ever allowed.  Other empires of smaller stature compete for power around you.  You must always try to figure out how to be better than those around you without using any of their ideas or strategies.  Based on China and Chinese philosophy and history.

6. Screen life – commuting and going around daily routines with a screen in your face always.  All outside life tries to get in your way from doing what you are doing on the screen.  Get through the day and get through all the screens to live to the next day.

7.  Abortion hearings – take all the crazy ideas that politicians have and act them out in front of them at a hearing to prove how they are right or wrong. Based on those who know nothing about science and don’t know what the hell they are talking about.

8.  I’m sorry – all white people have to go around and figure out creative ways to make amends for being assholes so much through time.

9.  Transit – everyone has to get to work, but they have to contribute through upgrade work and fiscal reports so that the train or bus will run.  The more contribution or  higher grade of contribution gives more fuel to the vehicle or makes the driver actually do their job.

10.  Student riot – elementary school setting.  Students riot when they are given standardized tests, when they are given false information instead of being taught real history and science.  You are the teacher trying to follow the curriculum, but you have to figure out how to keep the calm by deciding to do what is best for the students or best for the country/government/state/school.
