Event description

Description

Famed game creator Matt Leacock will be showing off and discussing his newest cooperative game, Mole Rats in Space at world-renowned California gaming cafe, Victory Point Cafe in Berkeley (June 17th).

Matt Leacock is the designer of celebrated cooperative games Pandemic, Forbidden Island and now, Mole Rats in Space. Developed in conjunction with award-winning cooperative gaming brand Peaceable Kingdom, players must work together to help the Mole Rats gather their equipment and make it to their escape pod before snakes infiltrate their station.

Cooperative gaming is a growing trend in the board game category as it teaches children fundamental skills that help to prevent bullying and encourage respect and compassion among peers.
  • In cooperative games, players work together to defeat the game rather than each other. Kids learn to work together as a team in respectful and compassionate ways.
  • They learn to share, make decisions together and trust one another while also having fun.
  • Peaceable Kingdom cooperative games organically create community.
