Okay… but what is it exactly?

Simple board game implemented in Unity engine with code written in C#. It shows example of using A* algorithm in path finding, you can set a path for your pawn by clicking any field on the scene, the shortest path will be then displayed as dots from your pawn to clicked field. Pressing SPACE will make your pawn move to destination location. Each player have his turn, then the cycle repeats. Whole turn cycle is using event system, keyboard and mouse Inputs are also driven by events.

Project is using optimized singletons (with generic singleton class). Pawn movement on board are using linear interpolation function, so it’s pretty smooth. Same with camera movement- you may be interested in using camera scripts separately, as it might be a good base for any project with free-look camera.

There is button for adding field when selecting any existing field on the scene. Pressing it will add new field automatically assigning new ID and connection between source field and target field.


Move you camera around with W,S,A,D keys, rotate it holding RMB while moving the mouse, and zoom camera in/out with mouse wheel. Each player can choose a path to move to, firstly select a path you wish to move and then press SPACE to make your pawn follow path. You can freerly reassign path if you wish to change it before before confirming it with Space.

  • Shortest path finding algorithm (A Star algorithm)
  • Unreached (grayed out) path is remembered for each player and can be continued in new turn
  • Turn-based game flow using events
  • Full featured Heroes M&M movement style (free travelling until movement points depletion)
  • 4 players, up to 9 players supported on field (for no pawn overlapping)
  • GUI Animations and buttons
  • Editor Script that adds/remove Field and automatically assign it’s properties or removes old dependencies

  • Dice throw based on physics
  • Algorithm showing all possible moves
  • Special field events when something is happening
  • Player statistics or collectibles of any kind

To Do

  • Fix camera rotate not always capped when moving mouse fast
