Think you got game?

What: A FREE, one-day game design jam where teens work with professional game designers

Where: YMCA Park Slope Armory, 361 15th Street between 7th and 8th Avenues in Brooklyn.

Who: 11-18 year-olds


Learn about key game design principles from the pros, then break into teams to design your own games and set your own rules. Props will include everything from kickballs and traffic cones to rubber chickens and hula hoops. At the end of the day, teams will playtest and present their games to a panel of judges. The top two winning games will be featured at the 2013 Come Out & Play Festival on Governor's Island on July 13th!


 

 

This is not an event geared towards creating video games. It's about getting on your feet, being active, and creating a field game that's fun and engaging and played in the real world.

  • Wear comfortable attire (sneakers or other rubber-soled shoes)
  • Parents/guardians are invited to attend the final game presentations at 3pm
