Stop Reading This and Go Build Your Own Games

Jordan Goddard is a first-time board game designer from Carmel, Ind. Together with his partner, Mandy Moulin, he recently created and received Kickstarter backing for Collapse, a post-apocalyptic card game. Goddard tells Popular Mechanics why it's never been easier to build your own game and walks you through the steps.

Game Mechanics

A game mechanic refers to a specific element or type of game play. A mechanic could be specific like “card drafting” or broad like the fact that a game uses cards or dice.

The Engineering Design Process

The engineering design process is a series of steps that engineering teams use to guide them as they solve problems. The design process is cyclical, meaning that engineers repeat the steps as many times as needed, making improvements along the way.

Camp

This game is a board game that increases knowledge in geography, and creatures of legend and fact. Each player must collect 3 pieces of evidence about their randomly selected creature. Creatures like Big Foot, the Loch Ness Monster, and Yeti have a country of origin where your game piece begins it's journey. A couple of the pieces of evidence have the scan bars, and we were able to watch a little clip on the mysterious creature. This was a super cool asset, I would love to see it on more of the cards!

In the wake of the queen's arrest, all the eligible young men of Tempest (and many not so young) seek to woo Princess Annette. Unfortunately, she has locked herself in the palace, and everyone must rely on those within the palace to bring their romantic letters to her. Will yours reach her first?
