Public History does Design
Students enrolled in the Intro to Public History course are taking their first crack at designing a game. Having looked at some design and organizational techniques and played some games to see those ideas in practice, they get to break into teams and create. To see how history (theme) and games (design) could merge, they played Tesla v. Edison, The Grizzled, and Freedom: The Underground Railroad. Thier first task is to create a simple card game. Later, we'll add some history content from the archives.
