Let's get this party started! We're joined by friend of the show Matthew Moore (Do Better Games) to discuss what goes into making a great party game — and what the heck a party game even is, anyway. Topics include the importance of quickly teachable gameplay, simultaneous play, and support for large groups of players, along with the variance kinds of creative expression possible in party games.

    When I was in college we had a branch of the IGDA which I was Vice-Chair of but we did a party chess game at a large event. We held an event and on entry when you got a food ticket you also got one of two color tickets. You would go up to the chess board and hand in your color ticket to move one of the color pieces. I think red tickets were white and green tickets were black. Every one then had 1 move and everyone got to play and come see the results slowly.
