Customer Review

on 16 June 2011
It is a good book if you want some guidance to start writing your own board game. Every chapter contains a short theoretic introduction about different aspects of board games and then proposes "challenges" to apply those principles creating your own games or modifying existing games.
I was expecting it to be a bit more theoretical and I would have expected some more in-depth analysis of the different types of game mechanics and existing games. However, if you complete the dozens of challenges that the book contains, you will definitely have a really good basis to start writing your own games.
The best thing of the challenges is that they offer the opportunity to explore different aspects of the game preventing you from getting stuck when designing your concept from scratch.
