#GameDesign28 – Day 2

Day 2 Game Design Challenge

From Jesse Schell’s The Art of Game Design: A Book of Lenses.

Choose a game you are working on right now.

Set a timer for 5 minutes.

As an exercise in understanding your design, create a list of every skill your players use in the game. Skills can range from shuffling cards in a deck, to using battle tactics, to understanding probability. Try not to leave any skills out – no matter how simple they might seem!

After your list is created, answer the question – Are the skills listed creating the game experience I want?

Be sure to share your challenge in the comments below, or on social media with the hashtag #GameDesign28! You can view all posted #GameDesign28 challenges here.
