"The worst thing you can do as a game designer is fall in love with one of your designs… which [does] not work." Gravitas Ventures has unveiled an official trailer for a documentary titled Gamemaster, marking the feature directorial debut of Charles Mruz. If you haven't noticed, the board game industry is rocking these days - not only with tons of new games and innovative ideas, but more and more people are playing more and more games. Gamemaster is a deep dive into the world of the thriving board game industry and the creators behind popular games.
