The Big Game Theory! blog has a new, dedicated home in an alternate reality where BGG, impossibly, doesn't exist! What you say!?
Big Game Theory blog launched at BoardGameGeek (BGG) to discuss
boardgame design and design theory. The blog has been running at BGG
since September 2011 and has generated a ton of great discussion and
dedicated followers. So worry not, it will continue to be updated at
the original location in full.
So why the dedicated site?
been expanding my coverage of games to cover non-boardgame games as
well (i.e. PC and iOS games). Along with that comes a desire to reach
out to a broader audience that may not be part of the BoardGameGeek
community already and would thus be limited in their desire or ability
to engage in the discussion. Expanding to a new dedicated site was a
way for enabling more discussion with more people - which is the whole
point of the blog!
That said – the blogging community at
BoardGameGeek is FANTASTIC and I don’t want to jeopardize the wonderful
involvement with the wonderful people and friends I’ve met there. Hence
I now have the pleasure of running two sites: this one at this new
location and the original site at BoardGameGeek.
I also wanted to
play around with a new look and feel for the blog along with added
functionality. As beautiful as BGG is as a website, it couldn’t happen
there. So this desire required a different platform. Hopefully you find
this look compelling and functional. Please drop a comment if you see
something broken, screwed up, or rage inducing that you feel I should
So what’s next?
I have more new content
in the works that will be posted as normal when its ready (and
cross-posted on both sites). In addition, I will be duplicating the
backlog of older posts slowly to this new site. I’ll use that as an
opportunity to re-publicize some (but not all) of the older content and
provide a bit of reflection on key older posts as well.
please let me know if you have any comments or feedback on the new site
and the changes. Beyond that, I look forward to hearing from you and
keeping the conversation rolling in this new, expanding, universe.
Thank you for your time and interest! Cheers,
