Game design is the art of conceptualizing goals, rules, challenges, and rewards to define board games, card games, role-playing games, video games… you name it. With the rising popularity of board games and video games, the need for strong design is becoming ever more essential. In this workshop, students will learn to theorize and analyze popular video games and attempt to convert those games into paper and pencil games. As a class, we will decide on a popular video game and discuss the elements of that game (the rules, characters, challenges,rewards, etc.) that make it unique. From there we will interpret the elements and figure out ways that we can adapt them into a board or card game format. (Ages 10 & up)

Space is limited to 20 attendees, so please add this to your My Sched to reserve a spot!
