A couple weekends ago I participated in an educational science game design session consisting of a group of scientists and other creative individuals. To sum up, it was a huge success. Not only did I have a great time working with such a great group of people, but we created two fully functional games ready for beta testing. For a more extensive description of the weekend, I point you to Chris Miller's post as he describes the weekend and the end products better than I could.
"This is what happens when you get a group of brilliant minds together to create board games. This was our Science Game Design weekend." - Chris Miller
I'm looking forward to polishing up these games in the coming months and releasing them into the wild.
