I’ve ported Michael Warburton’s Game Designers Idea Generator to MakeCode Arcade. The original was developed for the BAFTA Young Games Designers initiative. It’s a useful tool to encourage thinking about a wide range of different types of games - it’s easy to fall into the trap of just thinking about recently played games.

The code can be easily modified to add your own lists or to localise the language.
The Games Ideas are also available as playing cards for teachers. The details are on the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) website.
