Greetings Summoners!

I would like to present you League of Legends Dominion Board Game a creation of EclipseClaw and myself. Since we are both die-hard board games fans we thought it might be cool to have one for League of Legends as well.

We have had tons of ideas of how this board game should work but most of them had a couple of flaws which did not go along with the actual League of Legends game. Our general idea of a board game was to create something unique and fun to play without going too far from the actual game. So finally, we settled down with turn-based mechanics and adapted cards as a substitution for items and also, we created unique battle system by reworking and adapting each champion skills to the table, which allowed us to leave some space to keep the game up to date after any major game updates from Riot team.

This board game can be played by 2-10 people and it might take your team about 2 hours to defeat guys sitting in front of you. We do NOT hold any responsibility for injuries or lost friendships

Let me explain more about how we see this game working.

We tried to make something unique and not only fun to play a couple of times, but something that might actually help League of Legends players to improve their game.

We have decided to take out Fog of War because we thought it might be too Battleships alike and would be too long to play. Since we made it turn-based and all the players have full vision of whats going on around the map, everyone has enough time to think about their next move and react to enemy players movement. We believe that such feature makes this board game more competitive and will help players to improve their tactical awareness and teamplay skills.
Also, when you are playing LoL, you don't have the chance to slap your teammate when he is feeding, or worse, he screws up the game... But here you do
So what do you think guys? Any comments are welcome

Plastic
We are also thinking of making interactive champion figures and capture points to make it easier to follow HP and capture progress.

For gameplay testing we used handmade paper figures, what you see in the pictures is a preview of what you can expect to be in the game

I forgot to mention, that we made bushes as Green Zone, which means you can't be hit while you are in the bushes, unless the enemy steps in the Green Zone as well.
Also, we have tested all the walls on the Dominion map if they are Flashable and marked them grey, so players would know where they can slip through :P
