The great thing about #gencant2014 is that it never has to end. Until #gencant2015!
If your game has someone rolling a die and moving to dictate a turn, ask: Could the player make an interesting decision instead?
For my #GenCant2014 game night, we played Zombie 15, Red, Impulse, and One Night Werewolf. I don't think I'm aggressive enough for Impluse.
I got this awesome selfie with Scott from Board Games with Scott at #gencant2014 #gencantcontest https://twitter.com/snichol...
Ideas for a new heavier economic game set in a real time and marketplace are a-brewing with a friend. Why do I like these things so much?
RT @NakedMeeple: Retweet if you're NOT going to #Gencon2014! Going to build a list of all our commiseraters for #GenCant2014.
At the start of my #gamification class, the students make the syllabus on day 1, as the syllabus is a gamification layer on a class.

Game Jams in the Classroom - http://becauseplaymatters.com/blog...
I was a guest on The Brainwaves video series encouraging teachers to use tabletop game jams in their classrooms: https://t.co/FvWgormAer
I was the guest on the recent episode of the Who? What? Why? game design podcast - http://whowhatwhycast.tumblr.com/post...
I don't think about making games FOR the world; I think about making games WITH the world.
I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the presentations at the #gie14 Games in Education conference, especially being it was free!
I don't recommend many kickstarters, but I've playtested "But Wait, There's More". It is a great party game. https://t.co/swLC6Yswka
Teachers are now creating their own version of Awesome Time in my Tabletop Game Jam conference #gie14
