Game Jam - Modify a Classic Tabletop Game
BA (Hons) Games Design and Production
Explore the popular ‘game jam’ format, hands-on.
In this session, 'jammers' will be challenged to modify a classic tabletop game - this could mean adding a mechanic, changing a rule, or making an aspect of the game more fun! Beginning with a brief overview of BA (Hons) Game Design and Production at boomsatsuma, we move onto the game jam itself before finishing with a class demo/showcase of solutions. This is an active, fast-paced, and creative session that's great for all - from computer scientists, to artists and designers.
