We have three goals with Deeper Than Dice
1: Helping gamers find games that are right for them.
It seems like one of the things holding people back from engaging in Board Games is the cost of buying games. Few things are more frustrating than spending you hard earned money on a game, taking the time required to learn the rules and then discovering that the game isn’t any good. WE intend to alleviate this issue by focusing our reviews on Good games. We try to explore the different elements of a game, which make it fun.
2: Deepening the way we view game
Games are Art. Weather we’re talking about board games or video games the level of artful craft required to make a truly great game is astounding. Most people can recognizes that game shave art in them, like the pictures on the cards or in the rule book. Some games even have good writing in them, especially Role playing games. But it seems to me that few people every think of games as an art in their own right. We want to help new and experienced gamers see Game design for the Art it truly is.
3: Creating a Positive Space for gamers on the internet.
The internet can be a very mean spirited place. We believe that the Spirit of cooperation and friend ship that table top games foster is exactly the kind of spirit that the internet needs. Our goal is to create a space where gamers can come to share their passion for board games. We want a community that shares everything from tips and tricks to user made expansions. A place where you can voice your questions and find a group of dedicated gamers ready to provide answers. We want to bring the table top community to the internet.
About Brandon k. Williams
I am a gamer. Like my father before me, I have loved games of all forms and formats; from the simple pleasures of the abstract to the deeply moving power of themes. I have no memory of a time before knew games. Beginning with simple children’s board games and early video games, my childhood was littered with structured play.
I was twelve when I played my first role playing game, I believe that was the genesis of my “gamer” identity. Roleplaying games hold a special power for me that no other form of narrative can achieve. But I also have a love for elegant game mechanic, which leads me to explore all facets of gaming.
The most powerful element of table top games is the social aspect. No other artistic medium is so fully driven by social engagement. The shared experience of playing even a bad game can forge the bonds friendship, and a good game has the power to refine these relationships into the most precious connection we can share.
For these reasons and more I love games, and my goal is to share this passion with other. So that games can continue to brighten our lives and deepen our thoughts.
