Physical Game Production - Writeup

This assignment is due on Monday 4/30.

We will now work on board game production, then playtesting each other’s games.


I want each team to submit a writeup describing their production phase. I’m looking for at least a few pages here. Be descriptive!


Points Content

Production Details

  • Any changes you have made to the game since your physical prototype.
  • Any changes in mechanics? Rules?
  • Additional content including cards or units (e.g. Features)?

Playesting Details

  • Observations made during your playtesting session
  • Anything you were particularily looking for or testing for in your playtesting
  • Definitely any test control situations you set up
  • If you have them, a list of any few questions you prepared for your production playtest session (see p. 263 in the book)

Project Wrapup

  • What changes would you make if you had more time?
  • Anything you wish you had done differently from the start?

Project Assets

  • I would also appreciate if you attach any assets from your production (such as document containing printed cards, etc.)

Formatting and spelling

  • No, or few, spelling, grammar, mistakes
  • Clear use of structure like section headings, lists, paragraphs
  • No walls of text


I recommend using Google Docs or a similar platform so that everyone on the team can contribute easily.

Please send your writeup to me via email, or give me read access (share it) if it’s on a platform like Google Docs. Plain text, an attachment, or a link to the document are all fine. See the Projects page for the due date.
