This blog is about crowdfunding and entrepreneurship. But it’s hosted on my company website, which is mostly about the “games” portion of “Stonemaier Games.” I’ve designed many of our games.
About once a week, someone sends me a game design question. For a while I’ve pointed them towards the “Develop Board Game Projects” page on our website, though that’s focused on the aspects of a board game crowdfunding project.
So today I made a change. I created a new page on this website specifically about game design: How to Design a Board Game. It’s not going to be a topic I explore in blog entries (that’s what my YouTube channel is for), but I will try to keep it updated as I discover helpful resources.
The new page isn’t meant to be a compilation of all game design advice. Rather, it’s just a starting point for newer designers and a resource for experienced designers to expand their wealth of knowledge.
I’d love for you to check it out and see if your favorite game design resource is listed. If not, let me know! Or you could take a look at my newly posted Top 10 Favorite Games list on my personal blog.
