|Session Name:||Board Game Design Day: Designing Great UX into Your Game Board and Pieces|
|Company Name(s):||UX is Fine!|
|Track / Format:||Design|
|Overview:||Over the past couple of years, game UX expert Jason Schklar has been running a "Board Game" UX exercise with various groups of video game developers as a way of thinking about how "board and pieces" design influences the learnability of a board game. Specifically, he has participants figure out how to play board games without reading the instructions/rule book. In this talk, Jason will present a summary of findings during these sessions (including sessions with kids at his local elementary school board game club) and some tips for making games easier and more fun to learn.|
