Overview

Award winning game designer and teacher, John O’Neill, will guide students through a three-step process of creating an original board game based on a topic in Life that interests the student:

  1. Original concept analysis and development
  2. Distillation into game symbols, board and rules
  3. Testing and refinement into a game compelling to others.

Students will be encouraged to work together as advisers on each other’s games, and apply disciplines from other classes, such as Art, Math, Creative Writing and Philosophy to their creative process.
