    This book is terrific. Alongside The Art of Game Design, this is one of my go-to books whenever I'm stuck, or just need some inspiration. Structured like a reference book, there's a lot in here I was familiar with, a lot I wanted to know more about, some things I wouldn't have really thought about in the context of games, and best of all, some things I thought about and never had the right words for.It's great. I love it. My only gripe is not really the fault of the authors. I think this book is overpriced at $59.99. I suspect the publisher drove the price up by putting in lots of needless stock photography. There are several helpful images in the book, including some original artwork, but a lot of the principles really didn't need an illustration. They each have one anyway. That complaint aside, I still think I will get my money's worth for what I paid. I'm glad to have this tool handy on my bookshelf.

    Incredibly informative, when making notes I found I was making them for the majority of the pages. Concepts are explained in really easy ways, a definite staple for any game designers shelf.

    "100 Principles of Game Design" presents a great deal of useful information in a small book. On the left side of the open book is an article on the relevant topic with an illustration on the right side. While this was aesthetically pleasing from a design viewpoint, I would have preferred to have had a smaller picture (or none at all) and more musings by the writer. The book in written by several writers, and each contributes their expertise on the relevant articles. Recommended for aspiring or working game designers.
