Make Your Own Board Game

We rated this book:


Make Your Own Game: Designing, Building, and Playing an Original Tabletop Games Jesse Terrance Daniels is a surprising book. I thought it would just teach me what parts were to a board game, but then it had its own practice board games and lots and lots of other stuff I didn’t know about, like that there are different ways to win, eliminate, or, well, different ways to everything! So every game can be unique and surprising.

Mom and I played one of the games, and it was super fun. I learned that there are many more parts (called components) to games than I realized. There are games from real life and practice games in the back to learn to use the components to make new games. After reading this book, I was able to take what I learned to make my own super-duper fun board game and play it with my sister.

What surprised me most was that so much goes into making a game. Games are a great way to learn, depending on what game you’re playing. What matters is having fun and playing together. People who like playing board games and who might like to try to make their own would love this book.
