“Can you keep your cool while bids are rising?

Join Scott Nicholson, director of the Because Play Matters game lab at the Syracuse University School of Information Studies, to learn about his recently published recreational board game, Going, Going, GONE! During this session, Scott will talk through the four-year design and submission processes behind this (what appears to be a) simple and straightforward live-time auction game. The game will also be available to play afterwards.

We’ll be continuing our series of multiplayer game sessions this Friday at 2pm ET in MIT room 26-153. You can also watch online on our TwitchTV stream.
