The game design bug is contagious!

I guess my latest obsession with game design is a bit contagious.  My 5yo son has been designing his own games lately.  They are a bit unstructured, but at least he's thinking a bit about game mechanics, choices, and consequences.  Here's a video of him explaining how to play his newest game, titled "Cool".

He's playing again with my wife right now and it's interesting to see how the game is very similar, but has changed and evolved in just the last 20 minutes.  Now he's got a game board for each player (although it's just a paper and still has no spaces drawn on it) and players can collect torches and get power.  Who knows, maybe someday it'll be the next big thing!
