Board Games

From the first cardboard prototype of Steamwatchers, I really thought about symmetry. Asymmetry was light by then. Over the course of the second year of development, the game has benefited from the Mythic Games developers’ experience and talent… and wisdom. We’ve waited until the game was perfectly smooth to break down and dis-harmonize factions.
As gamers, we know when a game lacks balance, but how do we come to know and recognize this? Not all gamers have the necessary knowledge, skills, and tools to evaluate whether a game is balanced mathematically, yet nowadays, they will quickly label games as “well-balanced” or “broken” upon release. Balance means raising the stakes over the course of gameplay and providing interesting paths and strategies across the entire playthrough.
Watcher is actually a title you can seize in the Conclave (everyone gets a title!), and it allows you to exert some control over the spawning of steam columns. This is especially important since columns are heavily related to geothermal resources (aka GEOs), which are your victory points, if you will.

The more we play games, the more we learn. We learn better strategies, new mechanisms, be a better loser, and a better winner. We understand that we don’t always have to have the latest games that we definitely do, and we learn a few other things besides. In this article, let's focus on something else. We can look at what playing board games have taught us, knowing more about ourselves, about the people around us, and how it has changed us over time, if at all.
