Description

In this class, students ages 10-14 will spend each 3-hour session playing games, discussing them from a critical/analytic standpoint, and learning new skills to design and prototype their very own board and card games.

Topics covered include:

  • Game components & vocabulary – What makes something a game, anyway? What makes a game fun?
  • Themes & mechanics – How do they work together to create a great experience?
  • Balance & Flow – Why are some games easy or boring, while others can be enjoyed for months or years?
  • Rewards & Assessment – Can cardboard give feedback? How will your players know if they’re winning?
  • Game Design Process –The four P’s: Plan, Prototype, Playtest, and Publish!

Tuition covers:

  • Twelve(12) 3-hour classes – Each session consists of game play, group discussion, and hands-on design/prototyping.
  • Game Release Pizza Party 5/18 - Part launch party, part graduation ceremony, our students will show off what they’ve created and celebrate! Up to 4 friends and family members welcome!
  • Workshop Materials – Students will have access to all the tools, prototype materials, and art supplies necessary to prototype multiple iterations of their game.
