About This Class

When you're learning game design, you start with smaller increments and work your way up, just as a baby learns to crawl, then toddle with help, then walk, then run.  Modifying an existing game is a typical means of practice.  In this case we're modifying a game more than a hundred years old, L'Attaque (Stratego).  We start with what it is, then what might be modified to make it a hobby rather than mass-market game.  You'll make modifications and test it.  And I'll show you what I've done.
