Each class will introduce a new element of game design. The class will feature lectures and round table discussions between the students and the teacher. You will develop your own tabletop (board) games over the course of 5 weeks. These concepts will go through the processes of prototyping, playtesting, and iterating based upon the results of their playtests. The teacher will provide guidance and feedback tailored to each student based upon the nature of the game they are developing. The course will be graded on the student’s ability to develop a game that is testable as well as their ability to iterate based on the results of their playtesting. The curriculum will include in-class discussions, online videos, homework assignments, and class presentations.
