I'm sure you've seen it, the chart of the chemical elements. Some studied them
in school, others swore to never grow up to be called Boron. If you
studied chemistry at all, you've seen this chart. But for games, it's
I started the Chart Of Game Elements because I wanted to be able to clarify the games I was reviewing and judging as submissions. I wanted to spot trends and use the chart to see what areas of game design were being neglected.
As I said above, "I started it", and its not close to complete. But Rome wasn't built in a day and this chart will take some time. So please, add to the chart, or argue with where I put the various elements.
Please visit the site, and offer new elements. It's free to use as you wish... I have a funny feeling there are uses I have not imagined...
