Cardboard Edison’s Favorite Tips & Resources - July 2015

This month, our roundup of great board game design links features a new Meaningful Decisions interview and an insightful post by our interviewee, tips for negotiating a publishing contract, advice on playtesting and more…




  • Score tracks: good and bad examples, and what else they can do
  • “I think world-building is very important for some games, but I think it’s very easy for creators to lose track of the fact that nobody will care as much about their world as they do. The mechanics and decisions players make have to reinforce your fictional construct, or it’ll all get ignored.” - Joshua Buergel
