6 Word Descriptions - What Is A Game Designer?

by Lewis Pulsipher on 11/03/11 11:07:00 am   Expert Blogs   Featured Blogs

The following blog post, unless otherwise noted, was written by a member of Gamasutras community.
The thoughts and opinions expressed are those of the writer and not Gamasutra or its parent company.

 

I tried this on Boardgamegeek and got many interesting (and sometimes hilarious) responses:

According to tweetdeck, one of the trending:worldwide topics on twitter is 6 word stories. Those can be amusing, and I once asked Britannia fans to write the story of my game Britannia in 6 words with good results.

But this time I have something harder in mind: say what a game designer does, or what he is, in 6 words. Or if that's too challenging, try 10. I have a version of both, but I'll hold off on it for now.
