Episode G – Evolution of Game Mechanics

Released: January 2nd, 2011

Original Show Notes:

So here is an extended musings to go along with Episode #24 on the evolution of board game mechanics. Fortunately I had the chance to discuss this with Gametek’s Geoff Engelstein. We have about a 40 minute discussion that ranges from the evolution of recent mechanics, to obsolescence of games to the future of board games. I hope you enjoy it.

Special Note:

This episode was the birth of what was to become the spin-off podcast “Ludology.”  We had so much fun doing this talk together that we thought we could develop a series of analytical game discussions into a regular podcast.  The show has developed a loyal following with nearly 20 episodes.
