Sunday, March 27, 2011 ModenaFiere – Workshop
INTERPRET THE MEANING OF A GAME
After the great success of the previous year’s conference concerning the role of games in culture, this we will present two workshops that will discuss the role of culture in games!
Through the explanations of several game authors, publishers and university researchers, people will learn how to analyze the meanings of a boardgame.
What does it mean for an Imperial player to impersonate the spirit of capitalism? What is the difference with One More Barrel? Games like Blokus and Fits are symbols for the contemporary burocracy?
