  • Hi everyone,  I didn't get to play everyone's games during the final class, but from the look of it, all looked very fun. The one that I did manage to play was Jason's "jump the shark" game, which was wonderfully cut throat.  Some suggestions that I have for the class is maybe the grading critieria for some of […]

  • My favorite casual game is Flower, an exclusive downloadable title for the Playstation 3 by Thatgamecompany; I am unsure of it's genre.  It requires little skill with the controller, can be played in short bursts, beaten in a little less than an hour, and includes no scoring system or time specific goal whatsoever.  Rather, Flower encourages the player […]

  • Final Proposal          Lifish is a team based battle racing game, where two teams compete to catch giant fish called Lifish that appear throughout the game.

  •   One difference that I noticed between the modern game monopoly and early game  backgammon is that the game boards and pieces of backgammon seemed to be more expensive, often being made out of valuable materials probably due to the  target audience the game was generally made for, which were the rich. While  most monopoly boards, pieces, […]

  •   I want to create a board game that sets up a broad yet vague story that invites players to interpret it's meaning while they are engaged in a unique style of gameplay where player input creates the environment they will be fighting and racing on. The gist of the set up is that there is one […]

  •   The Royal game of Ur and Backgammon are both very old board games, the former being around 200 years older at 3000 B.C.E, making it the oldest known board game in the world.
