As many of you know, lately I’ve been doing some research and asking around trying to decide which football game to buy. There are lots of variables that determine what makes a great sports game, but the designer of Second Season, Keith Avallone of Plaay.com, boiled the nature of our hobby down to its essence when he said:
“My goal is to provide the same experience you get from reading a good book, except you’re writing the story as you go along.”
Read the full interview and some of the follow up responses – including a terrific endorsement from forum poster Bruce025, over at Galaril’s recently opened – and getting more interesting every day! – forum “Sports Board Games For Fun.”
Second Season wasn’t on my radar before recently, but with some of the recent comments I’ve read, I’m definitely giving the game a hard look.
