Hello everyone, I am Luca Morini, an italian Ph.D. Student in education and communication on a quest for the Holy Grail of community based game design, or "world making", as I like to call it quoting good old Neil Postman. Well, after wandering quite a bit within and without the web, I was able to assemble this (most assuredly incomplete) "Master List of Lists" of resources, both community generated and simply free, to share with you all, in the hopes that you will find it useful and helpful.


I'm posting this almost everywhere in game related communities, especially those that have a specific forum for game design. The first thing I learned while doing this kind of research is indeed that it's impossible to create something new alone, as this is a puny list that sorely needs the care and participation of the true experts, you, to become something more: a resource for everyone who wants to embark in the adventure, science and art that is building playful spaces. I am therefore setting up both a wiki , to allow for inter-site discussion, and a blog , to better illustrate my motives and to tell the epic tales around these cooperative efforts, which I hope you will find worthy and interesting.


So here it comes, THE MASTER LIST OF LISTS. Hope you will enjoy it.

This is a fantastic resource pool you've developed. Thank you very much for displaying it here (and in other places, as you've stated). You've done us a great service.

Thank you for your appreciation! I ask for only two things: first and most important, if you like it, share it! Second, I know that this is quite lot of stuff, and not everyone can go through all of this. If you could point me at some specific "themes" this community could be especially interested in, I will use your pointers to begin developing a more ordered classification. I'm here to serve! smile.png

Just a little bump to let you know that the main list on the wiki has begun to grow with some new contributions!... I fear it might get a bit "messy" soon, so if you have any suggestions on how to better organize it they would be most welcome!
