the beginning of the middle of the end: a game's arc of progression
- tom glassUnited States
I've recently been playing a lot of Power grid over on the ole' BSW(which is actually new to me). I enjoy the game but feel the games arc of progression is off. Power Grid feels like all beginning and middle with very little in the way of an end game. It seems a shame to me to spend all that time in developing your network and starting to see its consequent success, to have the game end abruptly.Recommend
I was hoping to put together a list of those games that have a definitive arc of progression; a beginning, middle and end, or more aptly, games that have the feel of a good story.
I don't feel this requirement excludes games which possess little theme, as I'm more interested in the underlying feel of a narrative as expressed by the mechanics,
Any and all suggestions are welcome.
