‘Annexe’ is two-player strategy board game built around the theme of colonisation. The goal of the game is to retain the ownership identity of your own culture while your opponent tries to capture it. The game is intended to throw light on the nuances of colonisation as a process and the discreet and subtle transactions that take place inconspicuously therein. Inspiration was drawn from the colonisation of the New World (present day Mexico) by the Spanish conquistadors. Design solutions were engineered to manage the game components with the least effort on the part of the players. The board game was provided with an attractive cover box to enhance the shelf value for the game.
