I love data and I love data visualization. Charts and graphs can be beautiful to me, especially when they can give me a new window into the hobby that I love.
My Intro to Tech Writing students are currently working on instruction manuals for board games of their own design. As a part of the assignment, they have to develop at least two instructional images.
I recently found a blog that, I believe, will really help my students with this task and that interested me as an amateur game designer: The Win Condition Blog.

Some of my favorite posts of theirs include:
And the Classic Board Game Nostalgia Presents series.
