The Kobold Guide to Board Game Design

I thought you guys might like to see my new book from Open Design, The Kobold Guide to Board Game Design. The essayists include our own Dale Yu, as well as James Ernest, Richard Garfield, Andy Looney, Steve Jackson, and a whole bunch of other great designers. We talk about the game design process from start to finish, including conception, design, development, and presentation. It’s a pretty cool book, sez me. I’d love to hear what you think of it.

    I was ready to buy, but then I noticed they were charging for shipping. Am I misunderstanding what I am buying? I thought it was a PDF zip file that I download on my computer. If they are actually shipping the book, all the better and I’m happy to pay for shipping. But if its just a download, then the shipping charge is inappropriate. THanks.

  2. There are two ways to buy the book: as a PDF only, and as a softcover book with an additional PDF. Shipping is only charged for the softcover version.

    Thanks. For some reason that wasn’t clear to me on the site.
