Goodbye Lenin! The Wall Must Go! Read the designer of 1989: Dawn of Freedom's notes about the game and the creative process
- Judit Szepessy(judoka)Canada
1989: Dawn of Freedom are coming in, and geeks are in the process of reading the rules, playing the game and figuring out card synergies and recreating history. When else would it be the best to post an interview with the designer, Ted Torgerson, than right now?
Read and find out what made Ted chose this period, and how this excellent game took shape!
I cannot hide my enthusiasm towards the design and the gameplay. I am amazed at how this game resonates with history. Behind each element there is a reason that explains why there was a certain mechanic put in the game. When playing the game, things come alive: the events, expectations, hopes and emotions of those times.
My hope is that this list will give the game more exposure, and more geeks will get to play it and will be part of this magic experience that 1989: Dawn of Freedom creates.
Please, post comments, questions, observations and experiences either about the game or about the period the game covers.
Have fun playing this awesome game!
