Adults rarely give themselves permission to play, instead turning to social media and streaming platforms for entertainment. This problem led to the design of a tactile and sophisticated board game that isn't put in a cupboard and forgotten about after Christmas. Ashlar is a 3D board game based around simple architectural building blocks. In the game, players construct a castle-like structure, gaining points for completing goals, whilst trying to stop their opponents from doing the same. The simplicity of the building blocks brings out a childlike playfulness in adults of all ages.
