    Have you ever wondered what renowned designers of analog games do to create captivating games? Questions like, how do they deal with the moments when the ideas won’t flow? How do they organize their design notes? What about play testing? How do you judge a design as finished? The more we tangle with these projects, the more of these questions arise.

    We’ve interviewed analog game designers of outstanding works in Creative Habits: How Board Game Designers Inspire Their Creativity, asking each designer the same questions to collate this interview project.

    Each creator brings their individual characteristics to the table, conflicting or concordant answers emerging. What you discover amongst their answers might lead to new tips and tricks for the creative in you.

    Question Topics Include:

    • Starting to Create
    • Idea Output
    • Time Scheduling and Life
    • Playtesting
    • Development
    • Themes
    • Art and Components
    • Final Judgements
    • After Completion, and more.
