GamesByRich.com: Classic Games Redefined blog

This is the blog formally known as Docreason's Designer HQ (the rest TBD). It focuses the thoughts of the design process of Rich Hutnik and other things Rich, gaming related (pretty much), finds interesting. The change in name reflects a bit of a change in focus and branding.

One criticism of the Method is that it offers a distinct disadvantage to the player setting up the game. I propose a tweak to it, that addresses this issue. Here is the video where I get into that:

My Classic Games Redefined YouTube channel, is pretty much now myself making a how to play video on one of my games made available once a week, due to other things going on. So, I figured I would post the How to play video here.

And this week is L-Gammon:



This is 2D movement Backgammon on half a checkerboard.

I may get back to some other game stuff, but the Universal Mutators have wound down, and I am working on another YouTube channel that is getting subscribers and traffic.

For providing useful feedback to others, it doesn't provide much value at all.

Here is a video I did explaining why I say this:

In this video, I look at a Universal Mutator that is an alternative to normal discarding. It has shown up in Poker and Hearts.

Here is the video:



And here is the entry on it in the thread on Universal Mutators:
