Hey, I'm looking to have a discussion about board games. Not a specific game, but actually about the mechanics of them and such. What you think goes into a good game. You seem like a pretty good person to ask such a question. But anyone and everyone is free to offer their opinions. For the mechanics and things I have some more specific questions if anybody is knowledgable. Also, if anybody knows of any literature on the designing of a good well-balanced game, I'd like to know about it.
