Layers of Pest Control

Layers of Pest Control is a quick single player board game with a real time element, intended to be played several times with additional mechanics added each time.

The player act as a monster exterminator trying to earn some extra money. The player will take heptomino shaped tiles (think Tetris shapes, but slightly bigger) with monsters on them and place them on a grid, so that the monsters are adjacent to weapon tokens placed on other tiles. Players should balance their use of time and space efficiently in order to reach as high a score as possible.

After playing the game once, the player can then play the game a few more times, with each new game adding on new elements that change how the game is best played.

The game was originally only intended to be used for academic research, but we decided to showcase it on GGC since a lot of our playtesters expressed that the game was really fun to play.

Layers of Pest Control won Best Game Design at the Gotland Game Conference 2023!
