It’s Dangerous! Is a podcast aiming to shed light on the often hidden or forgotten parts of gaming. When we experience games, all games we only ever see a finished fleshed out system. When games are done right, we just play them. We don’t think of the time it took to design the game, balance the rules, tweak mechanics, until you have a playable game. That goes for any game, board, sport, social, mobile, video. They are all important, and all convey something and serve a purpose.
The game medium is timeless. We as humans have always played. I would like to explore that innate desire for structured play that many of us enjoy so much.
I would like to talk about games, and people. People and games. Thanks for reading.
