On Owning Rules

I love this interview of a board game designer, even if it makes me a little depressed:

“If you design a set of rules, there are values inherent in them. There are things that get rewarded, and things that get punished. Designing rules can be a profound philosophical thing.”

Indeed and it is why designers can get so personally invested and defensive in making changes.
