Board games allow us to explore topics in multiple fields through a form of simulation. This makes them ideal for use in the humanities as a lab for experimentation. Join Matt Shoemaker, who has modified several board games and RPGs for pedagogical uses and is currently working on the game Bee Lives: We Will Only Know Summer, to learn how to design games that work well for classroom use while also appealing to general audiences. Participants should come with a topic in mind that they wish to explore using a board game. The first session of this workshop will be a lecture, with the following two sessions consisting of collaborative work to put what is taught in the lecture into practice.
