Welcome to the inaugural post for a new series, The Question of the Month. When I started this blog, one of the ideas that I had was to search out ideas and opinions about games and gaming. Not only my own but those of other gamers. And I’ve done a pretty good job so far. I love doing interviews and bring those gems to you. But an interview is limited to me and the guest(s). I want to open that format up to everyone.
So I’m starting The Question of The Month. I’ll post a question each month and open it up to anyone who wants to comment. At the end of the month I’ll compile the answers into a new post.
I’m getting started a bit late, as it’s the fifth, but here we go.
Worker placement, auctions, action selection, and roll & move are just a few of the mechanisms that drive games and drive us mad. They can make or break a game.
What is your favorite game mechanism and WHY?
Let me know and I’ll include your comment in the end of the month post. Leave a comment below. Email me at goforthandgame AT gmail DOT com. Or tweet me @gofothandgame.
