Being a stay-at-home father of two young boys means my gaming time is rare and valuable. So I now favour games that when I walk away from the table I have learnt (concepts to understand this complex world) or felt something worth remembering (humourous and/or emotional times).


I now favour strong theming to mechanics as it eases orientation as to objectives and aids memorisation of rules.


GAME SESSION APPROACH


After attending a lot of sessions board and card games, like any form of entertainment, seems to be dependent on two things to make gaming enjoyable: KNOW YOUR AUDIENCE and KNOW YOUR MATERIAL.
KNOWING YOUR AUDIENCE means knowing their tolerances (i.e. playing time and pace, type of game mechanisms and cognitive aspects, emotional aspects to theme), what makes them interested. Being able to address these different situations mean KNOWING YOUR MATERIAL is the make or break of making board or card games a viable form of entertainment, the kind that brings drama/excitement/laughter into the room and heart instead of relying on the TV/Gaming console to make for positive memories.
