Hey Everyone!

I started playing designer/euro/whatever style boardgames about 3 years ago. Recently, I got the idea to try and design my own so naturally I found this place. I'm very, very early on in my design process and I'm hoping this forum can help me reach the end where I've actually designed a game! Right now my biggest hurdle is figuring out how to nail down all the different mechanics I want in my game. So far I already have 3 different concepts brewing for the same idea, I'm just trying to figure out how to get it all together into a playable/enjoyable game. But I'll be making a separate post all about that. Anyways, I'm happy to be here and look forward to all of the great suggestions you guys have!

Just a quick tip

"Playtest" EARLY and OFTEN.

Ideas often sound great - but when you put everything together and playtest it, I have found that the ideas sounded way better than what the game turns out to be...

So when you have an idea - try to prototype it and play it as early as possible. You don't want to waste time on a design that doesn't meet the mark.

Best of luck to you!
