The first game I tried to design – back on the work bench!

My first attempt at designing a game was Broadway Producer. By collecting sets of cards that represented people and items needed to put on a Broadway show, players bid for, rehearsed and put on shows.  The most successful got the most money.  I made a prototype but in trying to make the prototype too pretty I lost interest in the game.

However, after chatting with two fellow game designers, SQ and Dshort, I am re-energized about this game too!  They are designing, what seems to be a great card game, based upon espionage.  I won’t say more about it – maybe later if and when I have their permission.  What I learned from them is that you don’t need details in the prototype – colours will do.  The basic principles of the game need to work before you start adding artistic flavour!

Makes sense to me  🙂
