Extra Credits, and Board-games…

In case you don’t already know Extra Credits is a great web series that focuses on videogame design and theory, but most of game design, theory, and good story telling as applied to video games also applies to board-games.

In a recent episode they looked at how board-games can help you be a better videogame designer, and I think the reverse can be just as true. If you really start to think about the underlying “rules” on which a videogame functions you can translate those into real (i.e. written) rules for a board-game.

Happy watching.
