In this vlog, I consider the different approaches modern boardgames have taken to deal with the issue of a runaway leader or snowball effect. This is definitely a consideration for a game designer: Does your game need a catch-up mechanism? Or should a game reward skillful players with no pandering to those players who fall behind?

Vlog 16: Are Boardgames Art?

In this video, I talk about boardgames as an artform. This is in response to recent announcements of NSFW versions of games and new games which wear their "offensive humour" as a badge.

What is art?
What is art for?
What are games capable of?
What is the mindset of the professional boardgame-makers?
What are the consequences of games being considered art?
Can toys be art?
What emotions can boardgames invoke?
