Holiday Fever is a Christmas themed family board game in which players assemble gifts and decorate their Christmas tree in order to get to December 25th the fastest. Along the way players gain Christmas Spirit by sharing stories, singing carols and giving away gifts.
Ludible modelled the entire game into a mathematical model and created AI players to play with different strategies. While building we clarified ambiguous parts of some of the rules as well as potential unintended exploits found by the AI player. Playing 100,000 games in merely 30 seconds resulted in a lot of useful data on usage and average value of every card and spot, as well as game length, strategy viability and first player advantage.
