Design Plans

Just to clarify, for the Design Plan you should select games and venues for your own reviews. Each review will have a game as its subject and be crafted to suit a particular publication. Part of the impetus of this project is to figure out how to write for different contexts. Earlier we looked at existing reviews to get a sense of the variety of extant publications and their respective traits.

Your Design Plans should be fine if you put in a good faith effort at responding to the prompts. Also, you are not stuck with the choices you make in it. If later you determine that you would like to switch games or venues for one or both of your reviews you are free to do so.
