Women in Games, Boston – Deck Building Game Jam

Andrew Davis will talk about deckbuilding games including Dominion, Ascension, and Star Realms. Why are these sorts of games popular? What are the differences, good and bad, between these sorts of games and trading card games like Magic and Pokemon?
After a discussion and overview, we will break up into groups and create a deck building game on the spot. Andrew will bring the game’s basic shell; everyone will contribute card ideas, art, theme, card names, and gameplay effects for each card. And then, of course, we’ll play it. We’ll wrap up with thoughts about what we liked and what we didn’t, and then the game will be released as a free PDF.
