Original Card and Dice Games - Now on the Kindle!

My book of original card and dice games is now available on the Kindle.

From the introduction of the book:

""I decided to invent some card and dice games in order to show what I do as a designer to a wider audience, and also to challenge myself to make games that had to be elegant and fit into stricter design constraints than computer games do. In some ways I think it is easier to make a decent complex game than it is to make a good simple game. With simple games, if you don’t get the rules and design right, the game usually obviously doesn’t work, and you have to go fix your core problems. With complex games, it can be trickier to detect and fix, but you also have more options for addressing it, such as inventing new systems and rules (or simulations or whatever on the computer). So making a good simple game forces you to get things right, which is a good challenge.
I have played all the games in this book, for a total of hundreds of hours. They have been really fun to create and share with people. I hope that you enjoy playing them." "

Get it on your Kindle.
