    It’s been about a year in the making, but I’m finally taking steps forward to teach a Board Game Design course here in Baltimore!

    For those of you who don’t know, board games (and other tabletop games like D&D) have been a hobby of mine for many, many years. Only recently have I been trying to design my own board games; it’s actually one of my personal goals for 2010 to finally publish one of my own board game designs.

    It’s with this in mind that I designed a board game course to be taught at the Baltimore Free School…This Autumn, it’ll be happening! I finally developed a rough outline and submitted a course synopsis today. The schedule still needs to be ironed out, but it’s now in the review process.

    Is anyone out there a board game enthusiast? I know that not everyone here had been introduced to D&D the “old fashioned” paper-and-pencil method. Have favourite games to suggest? Have some suggestions on what you would expect to see in a game design course?

    Please pass along any suggestions…they’ll only help! Thanks!

    Yeah, I love board games too. Design them? Heck no! Mine always tunr out to be sorta like.. monopoly, shits and latters… sorry…. or just a big maze. But to say the least I have put some thought into designing one and discovered I should stop trying.

    A class… sounds like lots of fun!!! I hope you get the approval, that would be a blast to teach.
