Board Games Vs. Video Games: Comparing Development, Design, and Business Models

Many of us love playing both video games and board / table top games. Both industries are evolving quickly, and there's a lot each can learn from the other. However, most game developers have only worked on either video games or board games, but not both. What are the similarities between the two? What are the differences? What can we all learn from each other about how to make better games of all kinds?

Join us for this fun, informative, and inspiring panel of video and board game development experts, as they share comparisons, insights, and stories about:

Development cycles and design strategies
Business models
Game mechanics
Cross-pollination between video and board games
Convergence and divergence: future trends for video and board games
Be sure to come early or stay late to demo fun board and video games made here in Austin.
