1. Learn to play an instrument, preferable electric guitar. 2. Fit perfectly into the zeitgeist, dress-code and gender-wise. 3. Find some friends who look a bit uncooler than yourself and are able to play some other instruments. 4. Bonus: female bass guitarist. 5. Have some scandals around. Drug abuse and hedonistic self-destruction being the minimum, no limits exist. 6. Die before your 30th birthday.
Do you want a fun board game to play but none interest you?
If only there were more games out there, then maybe w wouldn't all have to create our own!
Use a ruler when drawing in order to make it look nice and professional.
Right, 'cause it's the ruler that makes it look professional.
Make it unique -- people won't want to play it too much if it's already been done.
Hence the suggestion to use a musical note as a basis for the board.
All kidding aside, the article has really revolutionized the way I approach game design. I can't wait to read their article How to Beat Anyone at Any Two Player Game, I'm hoping it will help improve my go game.
Add spaces that take you to other spaces or triple of your next roll. Use your imagination.
LOL! And if you think there's some other thing to do than roll a die and move around the board, lay off the mind-altering drugs.
I think the implicit title is "How to make your own roll and move board game exactly like Monopoly but with different pictures."
I too am amused at how every 3rd instruction assumes a die roll is happening somewhere. Makes me wonder how many of the average person's pop definition of a board game is "a game where you roll a die and...."
Heh. Someone posted this last year. I would have thought by now a wiser person would have edited it.
In case anyone's wondering, here's how you go about that:
1. Buy a computer. 2. Contact an "internet service provider" such as America Online and make service arrangements. 3. Connect your new computer to the internet. You can find a wide variety of cables to help with this! 4. Turn the computer on. 5. Acquire an encyclopedic knowledge of board game design. Try using the internet as a launching point. 6. Edit the wiki. Make sure to get permission before doing so.
Hey, you shouldn't be so tough on the guy, I mean he must be a great game designer, I mean he posted a picture of his game design 'Monopoly' on the front page. He also has a link to design your own internet site - so I assume that he also invented the internet....
I also noted that the letters 'A' and 'G' were featured frequently...
Makes you wonder who this master game designer & internet inventor might be...
