So are the forums the same forum for all games?

So, I recently have taken a class on board game design, and I also have some projects on the go. With the existence of this whole boardgamestrategy thing, I was wondering if anyone would have interest in seeing some sort of board game design blog, assuming Theory would let me run it through boardgamestrategy. I think that this blog would mostly feature thoughts on game design, as well as be a place for those with game ideas to share their ideas and maybe even outsource playtesting.

Wait, what class?  :o

/intensely interested

My university has a Video game development certificate which includes a course called "Game design principles and practice." I'm not particularly interested in the certificate as a whole, but this course focuses on non-digital games ie. board games, which I find really awesome and very definitely worth taking.

Well, we played Backgammon in one lecture and played Dominion in a lab. The idea of that lab was for people to design some cards, but it took too long for people to figure the game out. Another part of the course was a few game quizzes which everyone had to do. There were 21 options of which you had to choose 8. I've played most of the games on the list, but ended up doing quizzes on Can't Stop, Wits and Wagers, Modern Art, Space Alert, Tichu, Bohnanza, Mystery Express and Pandemic.

My University is offering a similar-sounding class and I'm taking it now. It's a 2 hour class, once a week, for 8 weeks. It's been partially lecture-based (discussing design principles and games that use them, etc) and we have various simple design challenges every week. But the main project has been to design our own game one piece at a time. I am about to start playtesting mine! :o And during the last 2 weeks of the class we'll be playtesting each others' games. It's been an awesome experience.

If the game is any good, there is a slight chance I could make it work as a play-by-forum.

I suspect that there are already far, far more established chess strategy sites and communities. People have been studying chess strategy for quite some time.

As it's pretty popular here and has online playing: Through the Ages

I want to second myself, especially after it won mith's "Best Board Game" challenge. Not that I want to write there, I want to read strategy articles. I nominate Watno to write some articles. I think he knows the game pretty decent.  :P

I think there are some games that deserves strategy articles but not enough to create another website.
For example, 7 Wonders : you can write articles about each wonder, and articles about each color of cards (blue, green, red), I guess some leaders too. And that's enough.
