Aimed directly, and only, at experienced board gamers, Mechanisms: A Posh Party Game is a party game where the more knowledgeable you are about the board gaming hobby, the better you’ll be at the game. Designed by Daniel Zayas and Derek Funkhouser, Mechanisms “uses an assortment of component props to get you and your friends to guess game mechanisms.”
The designers are emphasizing that Mechanisms is for gamers in the know and not for newbies to the hobby. Quoting directly from the Kickstarter introduction video:
Mechanisms isn’t a party game for those who know games it’s for the rare breed who understands them. See, when a gamer becomes…”a gamer”…their game becomes Mechanisms.
