  • Using Analog Games for Education: a dialogue between designers and educators


    We are analog game designers, who have designed tabletop and live role playing games, as well as board games. We’re interested in helping educators design these games for their use in the classroom and in other educational venues. However, it would help us to better be able to understand more about the needs of educators and their students, and the parameters of design associated with educational settings. Come help us create some shared language and approaches to help both sides of the equation work together better.
