The Coolest Kid in School, my senior thesis, is a board game in which players play as four new kids at Webberton Junior High School. Every Monday during morning recess, all the kids in the fight over who gets to sit on a ratty old recliner chair in the center of the playground. Apparently it's been there since the 1970s. Whoever gets to sit int the chair for the longest is named Coolest Kid (until it starts over the next Monday.) Players must collect an army of kids from different cliques and battle their way to become the Coolest Kid in School.

This is a work in progress, and many facets of the project are subject to change. Feel free to view and make comments on the rulebook being put together here.
