1010 Deconstructing Games: Wits and Wagers
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM Thursday, June 22
Deconstructing Games is a new series of hands-on sessions where you’ll have the opportunity to play a game and then discuss how the mechanics in play can be applied in your own learning context.
In Wits and Wagers, all players are asked questions that require a number answer. After recording their numbers, the answers are arranged in numerical order. Each player wagers a chip on the right answer. If they are right, the “house” pays them; if wrong, they lose their chip. The person who gave the right answer also wins a chip.
In this session, you’ll explore how technical product details and traditional company history or information can be presented in this game format. Wits and Wagers illustrates collaboration, sharing of information, and evaluation.
Novice and intermediate designers, project managers, managers, and directors.
