Game Design

My Visual Communications class is doing a board game design project. I am struggling to come up with worthy concepts. A classmate found this great this great review of a book on the topic, and I was impressed enough to buy the book in PDF form.

The first bit of advice you get in the book is to maintain a childlike mind during the conceptualizing stage. I don't know if I have a childlike mode that I can shift into. Being a child was pretty awful for me, so I don't normally revisit that part of my life. But I am trying to keep a sense of fun. If I don't find my game concept fun, then nobody else will either.

Any advice from those of you who have designed games? (chadu, I am looking at you.)

Sweetie, your house is full of stuffed animals and Halloween decorations. I don't think you have any trouble getting in touch with your childlike mind. Squeeze the Cow of Happiness for a minute if you need inspiration.

Err, yeah. Guilty as charged. I guess I am pretty childlike.
