The Game-Making Game


The exhibition Indie Essentials: 25 Must-Play Video Games showcases the work of game designers and developers who have taken daring creative risks to explore new forms and methods of play. All games, from Tic Tac Toe to Madden NFL, are actually systems that share common features. In this 60-minute workshop, children learn what makes a game a game—and what makes a game fun—by making one, using tokens, die, game chips, and other materials.

Materials fee: $5 (free for Family-level members and above). Family-level members may reserve tickets in advance. For more information about becoming a member and to join online, click here. Ages 8+
