This month, our roundup of favorite board game design links and quotes includes counterintuitive tips, deep thoughts that are worth thinking about, advice for working in the industry, and more.
“my biggest piece of advice for aspiring board game designers is to play more modern games. play so many games. as many as you can. different kinds. pay attention to designers and their styles. learn what you can about how people who know what they’re doing do their thing.”—Daniel Newman
“If you never try your game idea because you doubt it’ll be any good, then it will never improve, and it will never be any good. Don’t expect your game to be perfect the first time you play it.”—Seth Jaffee
