Friday Games: Ahssahssahn’s Crid

Playing board gamesThis Friday at 4pm, we’re going to take a look at the most recent entry in the Assassin’s Creed series. Watch with us as we try to skip past as much of the parkour, sci-fi and killing and focus on all the stuff that’s unique to this episode.

Board games!
Colonial hats!
Tall ships!

Philip Tan will also share some development anecdotes about Revolution, a historical game about Colonial Williamsburg developed in 2004 by the MIT Education Arcade.

As usual, we will be in MIT building 26, room 153. We’ll also be streaming on TwitchTV. Come join us!
