As well as helping to develop Exploriana with the team, coming up with many of the ideas that were included in the game to enhance the gameplay. Robin also created all the graphic design elements in Exploriana. He created the cards, boards, the box, he designed the rulebook, created the iconography and much, much more.

Counters out is the publishing arm of Chance & Counters [website link], the iconic Bristol and Cardiff board game café company. Counters out was created to develop board games and Exploriana will be their first published game, let’s hope it’ll be the first of many.
