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.)

Thanks very much Louise. Wow, is he 12 already? It seems like you got pregnant last week... time is funny.

I am actually moving through the conceptualizing phase pretty fast. I don't think it'll be necessary for me to get a child's help at this point, but I'd be delighted to talk with him about gaming at some point. He is such an amazingly bright kid!
