James Van Niekirk creator of @MinionsofMordak, wrote a very good article on basic design principals for laying out text in games. Text is the key element in most games and can cause a lot of unneeded clutter and confusion if handled improperly. I recommend the article for any starting out in the board game industry.
A good friend of mine, James Van Niekerk, is currently working on short session RPG game called MINIONS OF MORDAK. I gotta say now is an amazing time for the genre in light of the Gloomhaven craze that’s currently sweeping the board game scene. Even though Gloomhaven offers a short of shortcut to traditional RPG’s like Dungeons and Dragons, Minions of Mordaks streamlines this type of game further. One of the hardest parts about roll playing games is the time commitment, this is coming from the flakiest D&D player known to me. James also uploads visual and game design tip articles that offer good advice for anyone starting out at making their own games! I’m excited to get involved and give this game a try!
