The well-played game : a player's philosophy by Bernie DeKoven( Book )
7 editions published between 1978 and 2013 in English and held by 483 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In 'The Well-Played Game', games guru Bernard De Koven explores the interaction of play and games, offering players - as well as game designers, educators, and scholars - a guide to how games work. De Koven's classic treatise on how human beings play together, first published in 1978, investigates many issues newly resonant in the era of video and computer games, including social gameplay and player modification. The digital game industry, now moving beyond its emphasis on graphic techniques to focus on player interaction, has much to learn from 'The Well-Played Game'."
