Board Game Rule Analysis

Wait what?!
Yup in this session of Boston SC we’re going to do an exercise in analyzing board game rules.
Wait why?!
The hypothesis: Board game rule writing & organization has similar challenges to writing & organizing software.

So in this session guess what, we’re going to test that hypothesis.

No need to bring a computer, just bring yourself!

    I had a blast. It was interesting to find parallels between constructing solid rules in english and 'specing' a software project.

    Nicely organized and mediated. It seemed like everyone knew what was going on, which is in stark contrast to my usual experience with these sorts of exercises. The central project was fun and the discussion interesting. I'm looking forward to the next meetup's topic, too!

    Doesn't look like I'm going to be able to make it tonight after all. Bummed, because I was really looking forward to this one.

    Anyone know where to hang out near by before the event (coffee shop that doesn't mind pulling out a laptop for a few hours )?

    This sounds like a really awesome idea. Alas, I have another engagement. Hope I can make one of these meetings!
