2 player plus the "Design challenge"

Hi folks, I fancied trying something a little different for our chats. So starting on Monday I'm going to run a series of four #BoardGameHour topics that kind of link together. To see if this is a good idea I'm starting with something quite easy (for me). I'm going to do a series on player numbers as the main topic area, starting with 2 player games first week, 3 player games next week until we finish the series with 5 player games. I'm open to more ideas about doing series of topics so feel free to get in touch.

I'm even more excited about doing the same thing (a series) with the side topic section of the hour. For this I'm doing something quite different (cause the risk is lower as its only the last few minutes), I'm going to start a short #BoardGameHour design challenge. I'd like us to use the #BoardGameHour forum to throw design ideas around and hope to inspire your next game design. Week 1 will be theme, week 2 mechanisms, week 3 prototyping and week 4 play-testing.. I really hope you will join in with this as I think it will be great fun and could help you creative process too :0)

Hope you enjoy these questions and the discussions they create.
