The Chart of Game Elements

February 01, 2010

I'm sure you've seen it, the chart of the elements. Some studied them in school, others swore to never grow up to be called Boron. If you studied chemistry at all, you've seen this chart. But for games, its new.

I started it because I wanted to be able to clarify the games I was reviewing and judging as submissions.  I wanted to spot trends and use the chart to see what areas of game deisgn were being neglected.

As I said above, "I started it", and its not close to complete.  But Rome wasn't built in a day and this chart will take some time.  So please, add to the, or argue with where I put the various elements.

Please visit the site, and offer new elements.

Go for it...  Chart of Game Elements
