Game Design Lecture at SCAD

Last month I went down to the Savannah College of Art & Design (SCAD), where I had the honor of being a special guest speaker for a classroom packed with college students majoring in Game Design.

PAX East

PAX was amazing. This was my first time attending, and fortunately, my day job paid for it. That meant I had to be in the company booth all day Friday and Sunday, but my Saturday was completely free.

 

Saturday I showed up with my lab coat and flowers, and started searching out subjects. Unfortunately, my IceDice kit hadn't arrived, but I was able to teach it to a few people anyway, using a couple make shift dice. Everyone that played it enjoyed it, and was looking forward to…

I'm planning Zendo, Volcano, Binary…

Friendly game night

We played the new Pirate Fluxx as an opener for a friendly game night.  The game started slowly with four players all playing keepers and few new rules and no goals.  A few interesting rules came up, but our anti-obfusticationist, Josiah played Rules Reset.  Then I started the action by playing Rough Seas.  This effectively penalized Corrie with a hand and keeper limit, as she was the only one without a ship keeper.  She responded on her turn by playing Keeper Limit 2, which I immediately…
