Abstract / Summary

Alongside the explosion of videogames, boardgames - from fast-paced party games to intensely strategic titles - have incr5eased in number, popularity and diversity. Events such as Essen Spiel, Gen Con and the UK Games Expo have diversified game development as the influence of fans has increased. in geek culture, boardgames bring people together. In academia, they are used to teach elements of game design and game mechanics.
In these new essays, game theorists analyze boardgame play, player behaviour and the complex interactions that boardgames foster. Game designers discuss the opportunities for narrative and for social play. Cultural theorists discuss boardgames' complex history as both physical artifacts and experiences.
