Welcome to rec.games.design, a newsgroup for discussing the design aspects of
games -- board games, computer games, role-playing games (RPG's), card games,
or any other sort of game. Post
- ideas for games,
- analysis, comments, and thoughts about game systems,
- questions about how something should work in a game,
or anything else about designing games.
This group is *not* about
- how to play specific games
- sales advertising (but game designer job postings are OK)
- games programming (use comp.games.development.programming.*)
Non-programming, non-hardware aspects of computer game design would fit here,
but there is also a dedicated comp.games.development.design group. Effects of
AI on computer game design would fit here, but might fit better in
