What's On at Capital E

High Speed Game Design

Break it ‘till you make it!

In this workshop we’ll play a fun, fast card game and then break it into pieces so that we can redesign the game mechanics to give it a whole new feel. You’ll be amazed with how many different games can be designed from the same starting point! By the end of the workshop groups will be playing each other’s games, no computers required. Students will walk away having learned how to design game mechanics and how to improve the games they design.

Come have fun doing a lot of game design very quickly!

Kids (8-12 years): Thursday 22 April, 9am – 12pm SOLD OUT

Teens (11-16 years): Thursday 22 April, 1pm – 4pm

*Please note anyone who is attending two workshops in one day will need to be collected by a caregiver during the lunch break.

*As lunch is not provided, we recommend using this time to get something to eat.

 

Facilitated by James Everett
