Rusalka's Sorrow: Designer's Notes
- United States
New Yorkdonated all my sanity to Cthulhu
This weekend I have been asked to be a panelist at a forum on Board Game Design. I can think of no better means to organize my thoughts on the matter than through a GeekList.Recommend
The games that I have designed may be few in number, with most being Print-n-Plays, and I have had quite a number of ideas that I have simply given away to other designers. Some ideas that I tried to follow led to dead ends. Others are stewing away in the creative recesses of my subconscious. The thing I do know is what I like when I play games, having been involved in one way or another with the gaming hobby for well over 30 years.
About a year and a half ago I finally struck upon a board game idea that intrigued me enough to consider submitting it for publication. Currently titled Rusalka's Sorrow, it is a fantasy-based, Euro-style game set in Dark Age Russia. Presented here are my thoughts and notes as to what went into its design.
