Showdown at Westwood is the analog/paper predecessor to the digital game of the same name. The analog version went through several design overhauls as past iterations were deemed overscoped and out of the limitations for a 2-week project. Ultimately, a simple 10×10 grid replaced a sprawling open field and mechanics were inspired by the simple-yet-complex board game Go.
