Just so you know, I’m working on an update for the DZ FAQ which will go up later today. Another update will follow at the end of the week.
One thing that won’t be in the next update is movement clarifications. I know these are important and I have looked at them. However, what this brought up was that they either need loads of new diagrams or for me to show you in person. Consequently I think these are perfect for a video answer rather than a text one. I’ve already got the camera and am just waiting for a bigger memory card to be delivered. If we hadn’t had that chocolate egg festival…
These videos are a new experiment for me, and if I can get them to work I’ll be doing more. We all know that the best way to learn a game is to have someone show you, and this applies to FAQs too. Some things are just easier to explain by showing rather than telling.
The way I expect this to work is that there will be a pdf FAQ as there is now, but in addition to the normal answers it will include links to Quirkworthy posts and videos that explain answers in more detail. This means that the pdf can be kept shorter as the detailed discussion will be elsewhere. It also allows you guys to comment on the more involved bits, which is fun too 🙂
