This course is a two-week exploration of the art of face-to-face game play. Coming largely from Europe, the last two decades has seen a resurgence in table-top games that encourage social interaction, strategic thinking, and problem solving. You may have seen or even played some of the more popular of these games - Settlers of Catan, Sushi Go, Ticket to Ride, or Pandemic. Players emerge from an hour or two of intense gaming feeling a sense of accomplishment, with stories to tell of their experiences and plans for the next one.

Week one will focus on learning a wide range of games that use different mechanics and themes. Each day we will learn and play one or two new games and explore their underlying designs in an attempt for each student to learn what excites and interests them about different styles of play.

In week two, we shift from consumers into designers, taking the lessons from professional games and applying them to our own creations. Students will imagine, design, prototype, and playtest their games. Their final designs will be uploaded to - a vibrant online community of gamers and designers - in order to get feedback and support from the wider gaming community.
