How does it work?

Watch the 1m 47s video to find out how you and your team can better visualise & communicate game systems, eliminate guesswork and iterate faster.
Presenting a feature becomes interesting. I was doing Machinations and René, passing by, looked over my shoulder and said “you should stop playing games :)” If it’s a spreadsheet, nobody cares, if it’s Machinations, it grabs everybody’s attention.
