  1. Neat overview! Might be good to do some sort of list of games that you think do a particularly good job with the book IP.

  2. To be fair– and I'm being pedantic here– Othello was originally released in the early 1900's as Reversi. It was renamed in the 70's, I suspect to take advantage of the "intellectual" marketing tropes of abstract games in that era.

    Still, great video. A good licensed game is a rare treat.

  3. Tak is a great example, having started out as a game created inside the book becoming a real game in real life.
