After working on Crate and Peril for 2 weeks, I decided to try something a little more abstract. Have you ever played a pen and paper game before? I played dots with my dad every time we had to wait for food at a restaurant. It was great. I would sit there utterly rapt waiting for my dad to draw the dots so that we could play. It is one of my fondest memories. I want to recreate those moments for myself as an adult.
So that is the challenge this week. I'm going to make a game that you can play with just a pen and a piece of paper, except that I'm going to make it for adults. Over the next couple of days I'm going to see what kind of games are out there, and then try my hand at it. Guess I'll get to it.
