Today marks the first time I planned games for the CG!
It was an enriching, enlightening and nerve-wrecking experience all in one.
There are 3 principles that I have learnt from this:
- Prepare, prepare & prepare!
It is always good to prepare earlier, so that there is allowance in cases of change. After planning, comes systems and processes of preparation. What do I need to prepare? Materials, rounds and duration of the games, limitations all plays a part. Over-preparation is always better than preparing just right!
What are the loopholes of the game? How can people exploit it? How can I prevent it? – Think like the people playing!
- Putting myself in Others shoes
Will the game be engaging/enjoyable/fun? Is it suitable for this crowd? How will I feel if I were to play it? How will … feel when they play it? – Having others in consideration is important to determine if they will enjoy it!
Planning for games is indeed challenging, but fun at the same time!
*a photo to remember what I had done 😉
Will really need to challenge myself to take charge, lead and be more confident of what I am doing! Stepping up and going out of the comfort zone!
Over-preparation leads to confidence, which leads to positive atmosphere!
