Sunday 6th February
12:30 – 13:15 GMT
Speaker: John Keyworth
Tickets: MegaCon ticket
All megagames involve game mechanisms, to some degree. They inform the players what can and can’t be done and shape the experience of the day. However choosing the right mechanisms can be a difficult challenge. What is everyone doing at each phase of the game, who do the resources interact, how does this influence negotiations?
In Mechanism Design for Dummies, John Keyworth gives a high-level overview to implementing a game’s mechanisms, from where to find them, how to choose the right ones and how to string it all together.
