Cardboard Edison’s Favorite Tips & Resources - May 2015

This month, our roundup of great board game design links features the latest in our series of infographics on licensing contracts, networking tips, PNP advice and more.





  • “You can never playtest enough. If you think you are done, you are not. Playtest some more.” - Jon Gilmour




  • Data and tips for designing two-player games
  • “So many people talk about theme and mechanism as if they’re mutually exclusive, as if starting at one precludes ever adapting to the other. But where you start really doesn’t matter. It’s where they intersect at the end. Your game’s story won’t be told through flavor text. It’ll be told at the intersection of where your theme meets its mechanism.” - Gil Hova
