Building games that can be understood at a glance
This is great - "three-reads" combined with some great interaction design and animation critique; I'm a fan of Zach's work, but this is insightful and clearly presented. Also: not a video! A skimmable talk! In writing! Wonderful.

Designing For Problem Solvers - Zach Gage, Nov 2014
This is a great talk by Zach Gage, from PRACTICE (I believe) on how to both design difficulty into games, but more importantly, how to help people become better at problem-solving, and the very specific relationship between shapes of problem, learning style, and difficulty. Great reading for game designers, but also recommended for any interaction designers, really.

"Halcyon is named for the mythological bird of ancient Greece, said to charm the winds and seas into a calm during the Winter Solstice. It is a spacial action puzzle game and interactive stringed instrument designed specifically for the iPad." Lovely.
