Game Design: Tabletop & RPGs

Tabletop and board games are going through a modern resurgence in popularity, as players of all stripes once again pursue the ancient art of face-to-face, participatory gaming. In this camp, you will learn the basics of tabletop, board, card, miniature, and role-playing game (RPG) design. Working in small teams or by yourself, you'll design and develop a prototype of an original game idea and rule set, using cards, dice, boards, and more. On the final day of camp, you will present your original game to the public.
