"Any time you can make the tension in your game revolve around the guy across the table, you've done something essential. You've turned a cardboard puzzle into a shared experience, a reason to gather around a table instead of a TV." What is "fun"? Modern board game designers Kevin Spak and Sam Liberty unpack this mysterious word in new ways, and usher in a boom of innovation that pushes the limits of cardboard chips and wooden bits. In thespirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
