If You Build It…

An endless variety of games, with mechanics taken from your wildest dreams awaits you in a simple white box. But first, you’ve gotta build it.

If you’ve ever considered the idea of designing a board game, then it’s probably going to be a good week for you.

From the minds at Gameplaywright comes ‘Things We Think About Games‘, a self-declared ‘unholy mixture of helpful guidebook and jabbing provocation‘ comprising a series of essays, snark and pithy comments from industry veterans – some informative, some agreeable, some questionable, all worth ruminating on.

On the other hand, if you’re after a deeper dive, ‘Meeples Together‘ is an encyclopedic treatment of the cooperative board game genre, with design commentary from industry insiders.

Then take theory into practice with ‘The White Box‘, a learning, planning, and prototyping tool for tabletop game designers. Containing a book of 18 essays on game design and production and a set of components for prototyping, the White Box is an invaluable tool for an aspiring designer.

On the other hand, what if you just want to eat, drink, be merry and play games?

Well… we’ve got ‘Bubble Tea‘ and ‘Pie Town‘. Rush to match ingredients and customer orders in Bubble Tea in a fast and furious race to score points. Or take a more measured approach with the worker placement Pie Town as you send workers to gather the resources necessary to harvest, bake and sell your pies… while taking care to keep opponents from deducing your own secret recipe.

So keep the games coming folks. We’d love to get a round or two in with you, and we’re looking forward to see what creativity wrangles up.
