We have taken from the material from a game design playdeck, a gamification wiki and wikipedia and made two checksheets.

Please try out some games and report back on them.

We suggested the obvious:
Farmville
Angry Birds
Word with Friends

But feel free to report on any game - including card and board games.

If you are new to modern board games and want to learn about board game mechanisms, I did a presentation at MIT with content similar to what you are learning here.

You can see the colloquium at

I found this secondary reference more interesting about game mechanics Game Mechanics

I have played Angry Birds, and a game a friend designed that is for iPad/iPod/iPhone called "21 Ice Clues" It is a cross between a matrix of syllables and a clue, drives me crazy, but I love it. These games are difficult for a dyslexic, but other times the words make perfect sense. 21 Ice Clues You couldn't get me to touch, right now, any facebook linked game like Farmville.
