Day & Time: Wednesday 9:30-10:40
Mentor: Jon Alston
Some of the best childhood memories are from playing family board games. Even after all the crying and arguing about who cheated, playing physical games creates great strong family/friend bonds and lasting memories.
In this class, we will study the long history of board games (spanning back to 5000 BC), how games are played (from simple games like UNO to complex games like Diplomacy), what makes these games enjoyable or difficult, what types of game structures exist, and how we might improve these play experiences.
The culmination of the course will be each student’s own game creation we will play in class. So dust off that old Monopoly board, it’s time to roll them dice!
All classes are full year classes. Students enrolled in a Fall Semester class will automatically enroll for Spring Semester in December to ensure their place in the class. Pricing is per semester.
