Games? Aren’t they strictly for outside office hours? Not when it comes to design games they’re not. Design games are not only great fun, they’re also a fantastic alternative to dull and boring business meetings. Design games are a great way to engage people; to approach problems from a different angle; to build a shared understanding; to generate and explore ideas and to generally get lots of great work done without it even seeming like work in the first place.
In this highly interactive and hands-on workshop you’ll learn and get to try out some design games that you’ll be able to use straightaway for your own projects. You’ll learn games for generating, exploring and communicating ideas, and for building a shared understanding within a team. Come to this session and you’ll not only have great fun, but discover how to ditch meetings and get paid for playing games at work instead!
