Rules Of The Game

Baseball may look nothing like soccer – or even chess for that matter. Each of these games has at least one thing in common though: clearly defined rules. This hour, we’ll talk about why these rules are actually essential to making games fun – and how we can use parameters to make everyday life more enjoyable – with Georgia Tech professor Ian Bogost. He writes about the idea in his new book, “Play Anything: The Pleasure of Limits, the Uses of Boredom & the Secret of Games” (Basic Books).
