I have been designing board games for a couple years now.
Sundays are better than Saturdays. Weeknights are a possibility. I have to balance my schedule out with my other obligations so it will have to be on a session by session basis.
I like the sophisticated elegance of the Euro game but with conflicting and conniving interaction. I find multi-player solitaire boring. I like party games that get people to try to figure other people out. I don't like fantasy as much as Sci-fi.
Dixit, Tigris and Euphrates, El Grande, Innovation, and Carcassonne (w/ Inns and Cathedrals and Traders and Builders expansions).
It is a very necessary and often challenging process. I have come to believe that a game will go nowhere until it is properly play-tested for at least 6 months. It is a supportive environment. David gives everyone a chance to share their ideas and games with him and the group. I have learned the most about gaming here from start and hopefully to the finish of creating one.
Howdy, Seth. You make me nostalgic for Star Frontiers. =) I'm waiting for my Traveller 5 kickstarter books in the mail with bated breath. As one student of narrative to another, I hope you'll jump into one our Modernity playtest groups, which is in the occult noir vein like CoC.
Hey Seth. I'm going through the list of those who have joined, and whom I’ve neglected to give a little greeting to, and I stumbled upon you. I'm sorry to have been so remiss as to not say hi when you first joined. I've been pretending to be an adult and that eats a lot of time, but really I'm just a cad. One way or another, welcome to the club! Looking forward to designing with you.
Hope to meet you if we every have another Lake City Open Mic.....Lynn
Seth, I need to withdraw from group... 30$ is steep for me ... cannot figure out how to.
Welcome to the Lynnwood Writer's Group, Seth! Looking forward to meeting you at an upcoming meetup!
