New game clue from Bill's Blog

The Game Design Committee met this weekend and I want to compliment Dave Lavery who found a way to really use his head while testing game elements.

Bill's Blog

Speculate away!

Re: New game clue from Bill's Blog

I speculate that Mr. Lavery hit his head on a game object when they were messing around with them. Either that or he used it as a hat of some type.

Re: New game clue from Bill's Blog

I don't think this is an actual clue. I mean I'm sure Mr. Lavery could get his hands on MILLIONS of items that can be potential game pieces and along with that, I'm sure there are countless MORE things he could do with each one of those items. So I don't really consider that a clue though.

But I am excited to see that they have the game pretty much figured out.

Lets see... If I took a water ballon and threw it at Mr. Lavery's head... I suppose that would count?

Re: New game clue from Bill's Blog

Could be a soccer ball. Or a non-hint designed to confuse us. Since Dave was mentioned it has to be an evil scheme to confuse people.

"Its a jackal! Is it a jackal? Jackal! Its a jackal!" - first person to name where that's from I owe a cookie.

Not a game hint....that's just anxiety kicking in. Besides, go enjoy that thing called summer.

Re: New game clue from Bill's Blog

I'm going to laugh if we get something like a trackball this year. Anyone care to explain how this clue could relate to that game piece?

Re: New game clue from Bill's Blog

The GDC is a strange animal (made up of strange animals) I wouldn't make assumptions. A year ago nobody thought we would have a game played on a slippery plastic surface.

Re: New game clue from Bill's Blog

I'm pretty sure every game/game piece can have a relationship with the head- you can put it on your head, hit your head on it, hit it with your head, or some combination of these no matter what the field/game piece is. Not to ruin the fun...
