    Your game design scrapbook is a very creative way to express your different thoughts, and it helps me to see that a scrapbook can have different facets.


Game Design Reviews is a Blog used by a group of game designers from Germany to publish and discuss their thoughts on various games. The blog consists entirely of reviews of games. Each review focuses on the important game design ideas and concepts of that particular game. We also run a second, more informal Blog called Game Design Scrapbook.
