This War Of Mine

Tom Vasel’s final thoughts on This War Of Mine (14:51-15:48) are important regarding games, replayability, and fun.

“I don’t want to play this game again. But the game is actually quite good. … It’s like a work of art, one of those movies you watch and … … This game teaches you what ordinary people go through in war. … I can admire it and say, ‘Wow. That’s interesting. Glad I played it.'”

As the industry grows—and if people keep playing games fewer times each—we’ll see more powerful experiences like this in board games.
