With my computer woes banished, for now, it's time to dust off this old chestnut and share what I've been up to for the past week.  Then again, given that I've not done one of these in a while, it's really more than a month that we need to catch up on.

Asymmetry and the Modern, 2 Player Board Game

A lot of the board games that are considered mainstream family games (Monopoly, Cluedo, Uno et al) are what we might call symmetrical games.  By this I mean that in these games all players begin on a level footing. Their playing pieces, starting hands or characters are fundamentally the same and it is then down… Continue reading Asymmetry and the Modern, 2 Player Board Game
