Gestalt vs. Emergent Play – My Preferences

Over on Yudhishthira’s Dice, Brand had a post earlier this month on Gestalt vs. Emergent Play. This post really helped me to get into words some of my own preferences in gaming and desires in game design. I definitely tend to prefer the gestalt elements in games. It fits right into my goals and payoffs. So my as yet unnamed BibliOdyssey game is going to be a very gestalty game, with some small emergent effects for getting to the end game. I’m excited for how it will turn out.
