Blog Round Up

August 27, 2008

On the heels of my recent article on making games that are less than you’d hope them to be, I read an article on Yehuda’s blog, On Failure and Success.

Even a failure is not a failure when it is a necessary first step. The first layer of bricks that make a wall is not a failed wall. It’s a necessary part on which to place the next layer.

In other news, I’ve been posting reviews on non-digital games over on, a site I highly recommend. This week, I reviewed Reiner Knizia’s Ingenious.

    Wow, this is a harsh sounding one, but true I guess… its better to receive a critique from someone qualifed than receiving praise from someone who can’t tell quality.
