GAME ON, Level 2: Build Your Own Board Game


If you like playing games (and don't lie–you do), then you should enjoy this sequel to GAME ON: A No Tech Introduction to Game Design. In this workshop, In this workshop, we'll move on from the playing card design constraint of the first class to design board games based on pre-made game boards taken from my game collection. You'll collaborate with your classmates in small teams to create new games to play, and experience the delight of truly playing by your own rules. You'll leave class with the rulesets to your new game and those of your classmates, and with a deeper sense of the possibilities for play. And don't miss the third part in the trilogy, where you'll invent your own sport.

No previous game design experience is necessary to take this class, just an open mind and a playful spirit. After this class, a board game like Settlers of Catan will never seem the same. You'll see it's not just a game, it's an infinite field of games. Play on, players!
