UPDATE: Thank you to those who have been kind enough to reach out with some errors I’ve made. I’m correcting them as I go. I certainly appreciate it when people take the time to thoughtfully respond.
This is what I think all game instructions should be like.
As a long time board game enthusiast I have explained the rules to ‘The Settlers of Catan’ countless times. The process of bringing new players up to speed takes a lot of time. In searching for an easier way to explain my favorite board game I decided to put my design skills to work on the problem.
The results were eye opening for me. So much so that I now thing that all game instructions should come in some form of infographic to shorten the time between you opening the box and playing the game.
