Game World Creator Mini Camp

for ages 6–12

Themes: World building/story development, pixel design basics, game mechanics, basic math and logic functions, upcycling/recycling, and sportsmanship

Tired of staring at screens, but love gaming?  Join us for our Rodeo Break Mini Camp where you can imagine and design your own game world. Campers will build a table-top game by designing miniature creatures, tiny sphere-habitats with a dice mechanism and matching custom game cards with character stats and actions. Participants will also learn vocabulary for sportsman-like gameplay and emotional tools to practice for both winning and losing.

If time permits, additional activities will include non-electronic logic puzzles, pixelated 2D magnets reminiscent of early games such as Tetris, an up-cycled "non-screen," and hand-sculpted dice and miniature game pieces.

All materials and supplies to complete each project will be provided.

Instructor: Tiger Brooke
