Goodbye PAX, Hello Zenkaikon!

Sunday March 13, 2011

Thank you everyone, especially Enforcers, for a wonderful time at PAX East 2011. We have received the usual bevy of requests for our slides, here they are.

We also had multiple people asking for recommendations for books on game theory. I can't recall the exact title of the one I read from the library, but there are many on Amazon that appear to be quite good. Amazon Game Theory Books

There is one book I recommend which is not necessarily a book on game theory, and is also a large expensive text book, but is probably the best book about game design I have ever seen. That book is Rules of Play: Game Design Fundamentals

Now that one more PAX is over, we are looking forward to the next convention, which is this very weekend! We will be attending Zenkaikon 2011 this weekend March 18-20, 2011 in King of Prussia, PA. Here is our panel schedule.

  • Losing Should Be Fun - Saturday 4:15PM in Live 3
  • Beyond Naruto - Saturday 7:00PM in Live 3
  • Beyond Dungeons and Dragons - Sunday 1:45PM in Live 2
