  • Tales from the Cardboard Fun Lab

    Curator’s Pick: “Any time you can make the tension in your game revolve around the guy across the table, you’ve done something essential. You’ve turned a cardboard puzzle into a shared experience, a reason to gather around a table instead of a TV.”

    What is “fun?” Modern board game designers unpack this mysterious word in new ways, and distill it into playable works of art. Recent shifts in board game design philosophy — and technology — are ushering in a boom of innovation that pushes the limits of cardboard chips and wooden bits. Plus: how tension, suspense, immersion, meaningful decisions, and social interaction can be used and combined to meet design goals and boost player experience.
