As a new feature, or to be more exact the first feature of the “Behind the Tabletop” site, I want to start a series writing about the designs I make when I design games just to design games. Something I am more often referring to as “designstroming”. These “designs” can be anything from a half- or even finished game to just a simple card design or loose mechanic. For me it’s just a form of expression playing around with inspiration, idea’s, mechanics or simply just visual design or art idea’s. Usually these designstorms don’t end up being anything serious or being even remotely balanced or playable. However as an game designer and artist “just designing a game” is always a valuable exercise. Therefore, I am sharing these designstorms hoping they might inspire you to do the same!
