There is a growing body of research about the topic, so if you have access to any libraries of research papers, I would definitely do a search for ‘narrative in games’ or ‘storytelling in games’. There are some free to view sources, which don’t require you to be a student or pay for access. I found this, for example:
Google Scholar might be a good place to start searching
https://guides.lib.umich.edu/c.php?g=282990&p=1885548 – here is a list of journals and databases about video game design – where you might find specific articles about storytelling
It seems less easy to find a list of journals about board game design – they tend to turn up one-by-one if you google ‘journals of boardgame design’. You can do that. Here are a couple to keep you going
TED talks etc.
