Review of 'Uncertainty in Games' on 'Goodreads'

3 stars

A good overview of the role of uncertainty (mainly through randomness) in gaming.

I've studied enough game design theory that there wasn't really anything new in this book, but it was still an interesting read. It provides short yet in-depth coverage of the role of randomness in game design (spoiler: it's important).
