Gameschooling Gift Guide – Make Your Own Board Games

 

Sure, you could buy your child some games this holiday season (and I really hope you do!), but why not take it a step beyond and give them everything they need to make their own game? When you make your own board games, you engage parts of your brain that normally lie dormant when playing games. Making board games is a great way to enhance whatever your child is learning or interested in, it also engages their brains in some higher order thinking. And let’s face it, you’ll be a hero this holiday season.

Books About Designing Board Games

 

Gameschooling Gift Guide - Make Your Own Board GameDesigning a game isn’t as easy as you may think, so start with a great book about the subject.  Make Your Own Board Game by Mila Moore is a good place to start. In this book the author will take you step-by step from conception to fruition. For readers who are a little more advanced and experienced, The Board Game Designer’s Guide is a great resource.

 

Make Your Own Board GameAnother really great book, more for parents and older children, is Game Logic. Game Logic takes readers through the hows and whys of creating STEM-based learning games for all ages.
