An interesting night in new media. It was all about games. We reviewed a few interactive fictions considering ideas such as puzzle clues, description as a means of orienting the reader, and details as a means generating interest in world exploration. These require the art of poetry.
Then we built board games. The students split into groups and put together some interesting variations of chess. We’ll have those who weren’t in class do a little play next week before we hit Pong.
