Pioneers in women’s football and wider football history, the world’s first comic book, the invention of television, the first women graduating in Scotland. Just some of the amazing breakthroughs in Glasgow’s history which participants in this workshop may draw on as themes to create educational games.
Guided by the University of Glasgow’s Games and Gaming Lab, come and dive into the university’s archives and collections and draw on the city’s rich social-cultural and political-military history to brainstorm and create new board and/or card games in teams. A chance to meet likeminded gamers and learn some skills in using historical materials in game creation. Games created may be eligible to receive a follow-on consultation from the Games and Gaming Lab about their further development for educational use.
