Game Design

Receiving Feedback

Getting feedback during play testing is central to board game development. I’ve found the feedback from play testers comes right after I’ve played my budding new game myself for awhile.

Once I’ve got sufficient feedback I’ll move onto graphic design, which in my case means hiring someone to do that. But, how do I know when I’ve had enough feedback, or when the feedback is no longer contributing to making the board game better.

Game Play

Two Player Games

I really got into two player board games many years after discovering a wider swath of board games. I’ve known chess, checkers and backgammon for as long as I can remember.

Then came some of the board games that are considered traditional in the United States. The richness of the two player genre didn’t reveal it self until much later. Actually fairly recently.
