Hello, I hope a friendly introduction is appropriate for the Discussions thread.  I'm Keith Nemitz. For the last ten and more years, I've been designing and shipping video games often noted for their board game like mechanics.

Recently, I've begun my first table-top game, an LCG inspired by Mad Men, but instead of the 60s, my game will be set in the 50s. I've put about six months into the design so far, and I'm finally at the point where the system supports the big-biz soap opera experience I wanted to achieve. There's still tons of work ahead, mostly playtesting and balancing card ideas, I expect.

Your advice on how to interact appropriately with and support the people here would be greatly appreciated. I'm certainly interested to playtest your games.

This article is about negative self-talk—that is, the inner voice that tells you that you're stupid, etc. /// BIG NEWS: This article made the "front page" of The Coffelicious, a collection of blog posts chosen by medium.com as "some of the best articles on medium"!

I could use your help keeping it on that page (more popular articles last longer there)—just go to the bottom of the page and click the "heart" icon to vote. Many thanks!

(FYI, you must join medium.com to vote on articles—you can read them without joining, though. Medium publishes lots of quality writing, so you can find interesting reading there, and you can publish things there, too!)

For the last six months, I've been working on a card game. Today was the first time I felt a design for it was worth keeping. It's a good feeling. It's going to be a very cool game. Big business soap opera set in the 1950s.

Not sure what to think... feels darn good, though.
What makes a game 'highbrow'? We don’t have solid criteria for deciding conclusively which games are masterpieces, and which are just dumb, explosive fun. #7grandsteps #dangeroushighschoolgirlsintrouble #highbrowgames

"The SHA-256 algorithm is surprisingly simple, easy enough to do by hand. (The elliptic curve algorithm for signing Bitcoin transactions would be very painful to do by hand since it has lots of multiplication of 32-byte integers.) Doing one round of SHA-256 by hand took me 16 minutes, 45 seconds. At this rate, hashing a full Bitcoin block (128 rounds)[3] would take 1.49 days, for a hash rate of 0.67 hashes per day (although I would probably get faster with practice). In comparison, current Bitcoin mining hardware does several terahashes per second, about a quintillion times faster than my manual hashing. Needless to say, manual Bitcoin mining is not at all practical."
