Are there any online courses like codecademy.com or teamtreehouse.com for Board Games development? Or something similar where you can learn BG development? Also if you know any other useful resources like books, videos and similar things, please share

    Best way to learn; play many different board games, including ones you wouldn't normally like. – Waterseas Feb 22 '16 at 18:44

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is not about a specific board or card game. – Drunk Cynic Feb 22 '16 at 19:06

    @DrunkCynic I don't think that's a good metric for closing. There are a number of questions on the site that don't refer to a specific board game. "Designing board games" is on-topic for this site, and the OP is asking for objective information. This seems to fit all of the criteria I can find for acceptable questions, except that it may generate a list. – SocioMatt Feb 22 '16 at 19:23

    @DrunkCynic In rereading the entire page on the Help Center, I think that "a game" is meant to refer to games that meet the four criteria under "How do we define board games?" I agree this is confusing when taken out of context. If we assumed that questions had to relate to a game that already existed, then design would be off-topic, which would contradict the first sentence of What topics can I ask about here? – SocioMatt Feb 22 '16 at 19:56

    Reopening - There is no requirement that a question be about only one game. – Pat Ludwig Feb 23 '16 at 6:34

Here are a couple EdX options. The first is about game design (both board and computer games). The second focuses on games meant for education.
