Come to the next Final Friday: April 30th

On Friday April 30th, from 3-6pm, the CUNY Games Network will meet at the CUNY Graduate Center, 365 Fifth Avenue (@35th Street), New York City, in Room C196.02.

We will examine some burgeoning classroom games that our group created back in January out of Joe’s game “What’s Your Game Plan? A Game for Turning Lesson Plans into Games,” and attempt to turn these games into fully functioning classroom exercises. During the second half of the meeting, we will once again play the most popular Euro strategy board game ever imported into the US–SETTLERS OF CATAN–and hopefully look at its card game adaptation as well.
