The New Games Movement of the 1960s and 70s sought to redefine adult play experiences by developing cooperative, social and physical games that could serve as an alternative to traditional sports; these alternative games have gone have become pervasive in the classroom, at summer camps, at corporate events, and in theater training. Join IndieCade cofounder and author of Communities of Play, Celia Pearce, for this two-phased workshop. First, Dr. Pearce leads a sampling of some canonical New Games, as taught to her by New Games pioneer Bernie DeKoven. She then asks participants to invent their won New Games with a twist: Create new games that are derived from video games. A super fun activity for both kids and adults and a quick way to get a taste of game design. This work shop is part of the “Big Fun” program in association with the Bernie DeKoven “Big Fun” Award being inaugurated at this year’s IndieCade.
