Top 10 Games Every Designer Should Play (VOTE BY THUMB)
- League of Gamemakers(leagueGM)United States
The League of Gamemakers recently embarked on a mission with Stonemaier Games to find the top 10 games every novice designer should play at least once, in order to learn the craft.Recommend
The original goals of the list had three key guidelines:
1. The games on the list should teach a specific design lesson (or lessons).
2. The games on the list should be exemplars of certain parts of the craft.
3. The games on the list should accelerate a novice designer's knowledge of tabletop game design in a short amount of time (30-45 min). (see change below).
Additionally, the league decided the games should be as focused as possible and teach positive, rather than negative design lessons.
For our BGG list, let's open back up the timetable and allow ANY length game.
Here's a link to our blog, explaining our methods of selection among our 12 designers/teams:

What do YOU think are the top games every designer should play?
If possible, use your thumbs on ONLY 10 choices, and we'll see what rises to the top.
Thanks for playing!
