Down Time is Boring

I’m enjoying my first multi-day hospital stay. There is a lot of waiting. Makes me appreciate games with minimal downtime.

Even if players aren’t active it’s nice to give them something to do. Either plan their future turns or be interested in the current player’s turn.

Planning only works if the game state doesn’t change too much. If it does, plans quickly fall apart.

Don’t let players be bored.

  1. I love the way you can make all things about board games, that’s awesome ❤️ I hate thinking my move ahead because when it gets ruined I get mad.
