An elegant solution to a problem

After Riot Games first released the Mechs vs. Minions board game, they quickly realized that players wanted to customize and share their manually "programmed" scenarios and rules for various ways to challenge their friends to a match. Players initially started posting scenarios and rules in haphazard manner on Reddit threads and in various social media posts...but there was no consistent pattern or method for drafting and sharing your scenarios.

Then Riot had the brilliant idea of creating an online scenario generator, where users could drag-and drop map and game pieces to digitally plot out their desired scenarios and rules. Haven Agency worked closely with the team at Riot to design and develop the perfect solution... the online scenario generator tool. The tool is not only easy to use, but it also allows for consistency in how players can design and share their scenarios because the final results can be downloaded as PDF documents. Overall, it was an elegant, yet easy-to-use solution for the fans of this unique board game!
