Board Game Designer | AIE Holiday CoursesBoard Game Designer

Time to get away from the computer as students learn how to design and prototype their own board game.

Students will start by modifying a game we have created to learn the basics. They will then begin development on their own game while learning about creating rules and how to quickly iterate on a design.

Spend time playing other students’ games to learn about giving and receiving feedback. At the end of the course they will have a game that they can take home and play at the next family game night.
