Bonza Box

Minimega is an award winning Australian indie game studio. They are most know for their Bonza series of games on iPhone and mobile devices. I was engaged to design and develop their digital game for the tabletop.

The award-winning Bonza Puzzle Word Game is now a tabletop experience!

I met the Minimega team, the creators of Bonza, at a game convention where they were showing off their latest digital game. As part of their booth activation, they also created a handmade tabletop version of their popular Bonza Word Puzzle Game. After receiving an unexpected positive reception to their prototype, they reach out to me to help develop a tabletop version of Bonza.

We explored different concepts and decided to create a product that capitalises on the familiarity of the digital game for the tabletop. The Bonza Box consists of a series self contained puzzles on high-quality punchboards with the minimalist Bonza aesthetic.

The Bonza Box launched at PAX Australia 23. Over 150 Bonza Boxes were sold over the weekend with an increase in downloads and traffic to their app games. The game had a positive reception from fans of the Bonza series and reached new audiences outside of their videogame demographic. They also received press coverage and interest from publishers.
