Well Read: Prototyping by Todd Zaki Warfel and A Theory of Fun for Game Design by Ralph Koster

Oops, a combo post to make up for the last two columns, which I apparently forgot to post here. In December, Well Read featured Prototyping by Todd Zaki Warfel. In January, it was A Theory of Fun for Game Design by Ralph Koster. They’re good books. You should definitely read them. :)

Many thanks to Aaron Silvers and Alicia Sanchez, respectively, for the book suggestions! And if you have a suggestion for a book that is not directly about learning, but influences or speaks to what we do, please feel free to contact me. One of the best parts of doing this column has been receiving people’s suggestions and having my mind broadened by how truly multidisciplinary our field is.
