Fiendish Words - editorial content

Reading Matters

The purpose of this web site is to inform you about our games and hopefully persuade you to buy them.

Fortunately there's more to life than commerce and we occasionally find time to write something which we think might be of interest to Johnny Punter. Mind you, that was before we became fathers; time seems to have been at a premium ever since.

Still, we know from the odd bit of feedback that the Game Designer's Notebook has been of interest to 'A' level arts student, while John's pedantry hang-up never seems to date - unlike his articles on music.

So, here it all is, a selection of stuff wot we have written.

Who we are - the Fiends themselves

Game Designer's Notebook - the birth of Breaking Away

Keeping It Simple - advice on games design from James Ernest of Cheapass Games

GCSE Graphics Course: Producing A Board Game

Tunnels & Trolls: 1984 interview with the designer.

Music To My Eras - musings on musical fashions

Mind Your Language - a rant about people who mangle the English language
