Off to Portugal
As expected this week was a fairly unproductive one, mostly spent doing frantic last minute preparation for our trip to Portugal today. I'm not particularly organised it turns out. I did get a little bit of work done on my German language Windows Phone app,...

Manchester
Last week I spent almost entirely in Manchester for work. Thankfully, that didn't preclude gaming :-) Monday began with a three hour train journey with Ian (Ra, Carcassonne, Tsuro, Galaxy Trucker) and ended with a night in a pub for Tabletop Manchester with...

A couple of weeks ago someone on twitter linked to this video by Eduardo (Edo) Baraf: So you want to make a game . He talks about game design in terms of six headings (see below). I found the video very interesting, very thought provoking and it made me thi...

Decent Progress All Round
This week hasn't been as epic as last week , but I've nevertheless managed to make solid progress on a couple of things. It was a busy week at work (though all in the office - no travel!) with visitors from America and Manchester up along with my boss for s...

Asymmetry In Dragon Dance
The game I'm currently focusing on, Dragon Dance, is a two-player game themed around the epic struggle between St. George and the Dragon. I want it to be a game of simultaneous action and bluff that recreates the feeling I had when sparring during my Tae Kw...

Zombology on Demand!
After a few busy weeks of travel for work and lots of visitors at home we've had a fairly quite week, spent chilling as a family and getting stuff ready for our forthcoming holiday to Portugal. Up until last night I'd done nothing blog-worthy at all (no mob...

New Games
It's been a very games-heavy week :-) Tuesday I made it to Newcastle Playtest for the first time in what felt like several months (I definitely didn't make it in March, not sure about Feb). We had a great turnout, including a couple of people who had made t...

I've spent a whole week in Newcastle! That doesn't sound that impressive, seeing as it's where I live and work, but in the preceding two weeks I spent five and a half days in America and two days in Manchester . With a whole week of evenings at home I've be...

Out of the Closet
I started working for my current employer back in 2001, when it was a smallish independent company. I was working for them when I started designing Border Reivers and several of my friends and colleagues were among the Border Reivers playtesters. In 2005 I ...

Dragon Dance Art and Playtesting
I've mostly been focussed on Dragon Dance again this week. After a busy January finishing off the physical copies of Zombology it felt good to crack on with Dragon again. I made a second version which replaced last week's hand-scribbled version on the train...
