Dr. Gordon Hamilton

Game Design Instructor

Join Gordon Hamilton, the designer of Santorini and founder of MathPickle.com on a guided tour of board games and board game design. We are going to start by playing some games on board game arena and discussing the mechanisms behind the designs. What makes them tick. After several hours of becoming familiar with games we will choose one and design some of our own variations. Lastly, we will tackle a design together. The theme for this game will be space-related, but that leaves a universe of possibilities! We will aim to create something that is worthy of publication.
