A board game doesn't just spring, fully-formed from the head of a game designer. Sure, they might have a pretty good idea of what a game will be, but it's actually quite a long process where the final version might be leagues from the original. In this article, Z-Man Games gives us a look at the design process behind one of their upcoming releases, a new edition of History of the World.
