Briefing the players before a game is good, but intro text is like a short memo of the full brief. Welcome text is shown at the start of the game and is accessible to the players throughout the game under “info”. Here are 3 tips to write good intros for your games.

„Think quick, this question has a timer! What is…“
„During what month do people sleep the least? Use hint if you are stuck “
When your game has many rules, it’s crucial to maintain simplicity and clarity. The simpler the game, the easier it...
