I'm a high school teacher and I wanted to give my students a game design project. However, before they design their own game, they need to learn more about game design.
Can anyone point me in the direction of some game design resources? I have been listening to the Ludology podcast, which is very helpful (the Red Raven Games podcast has a Game Design Tip of the Week which is also helpful, though brief). I'm hoping someone can share links to articles explaining different aspects of game design, especially an explanation of different game mechanics. I'm trying to put together a Game Design 101 type of thing.
Thank you to the community in advance for your help!
I suggest looking at some of the pinned threads in this forum as there is a lot of helpful information to be found there, though I'm sure others (who have actually designed games) will have some good tips for you.
You can also browse all of the 51 different listed mechanics here on BGG. Here's the list. Click each mechanic for a definition.
