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 comp.ai.games.
