First Final Friday of Fall!


Calling all professors!

The next meeting of the CUNY Games Network will be (“First Friday”) Friday October 1st, from 3-6pm at the CUNY Graduate Center, room 7209.

Rather than having any formal presentation, we will welcome the fabulous Fall by playing a host of board games with interesting mechanics, as well as possibly revisiting Joe’s WHAT’S YOUR GAME PLAN?, a game that teaches you how to add interactive game pedagogy to any lesson plan.

Next Final Friday: June 4th

Here comes the big meeting you’ve been waiting for all semester.

This June 4th is “Gaming Your Syllabus: Designing an Interactive Course,” presented by Francesco Crocco. We ask you to please bring in your syllabus or some lesson plans for a course you’re teaching next semester. Then we will put our mad scientist caps on, and brainstorm some games or game-exercises you might use in your class.

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.
