Hello fellow SWA gaming enthusiasts!

I am currently pursuing my Master of Fine Arts in Graphic Design through one of the Art Institutes.

I currently am in the thesis phase of my academic career and this is the culmination of almost three years of hard work.  My thesis is titled Graphic design and the board game industry: Form vs. function to gamer satisfaction.  Its a study the impact graphic design & aesthetics have on board games and the board game industry in general.  I am almost done but at this point I wanted to get some good feedback from some fellow gamers that I can use as reference material.

So I have designed a survey that should only take a few minutes of your time, its ten questions and completely anonymous.  The questions center around board games, aesthetics and information management within board games. Most questions are general in nature and are multiple choice. It should only take about ten minutes and I am looking to get as many responses as possible in a weeks time.

So If you don’t mind please take the few minutes of your valuable time and fill out my online survey available here:

By June 1st, 2009 if at all possible.

And thanks again
Ralph Mabb
