GamUp Remixes the Game Design Workshop in Egypt

I was chuffed to find out that my instructional post about Game Design Rapid Prototyping Workshops had been discovered on Medium (where I reposted it ☺️) and used by the team at GamUp to conclude their Game Jam Night in Egypt back in February. Susan Abadir kindly responded on Medium to let me know:

I came across your article will proofreading GamFed’s newsletter, and it was just few days before we were about to deliver a non-digital game Jam Night based on Dr. Scott Nicholson framework and your table outline and presentation just completed our night perfectly, we also added a few stuff like game elements they can use instead of lego and we had a jury panel with checklist criteria etc.

So thanks a million , and here’s a wrap up video of the event Enjoy!

It’s great to see the workshop in action, especially when they adapted it using the materials at hand to make it suite their needs. It’s a great example of of frugal education in practice. Lightweight, easy to implement, and super engaging.
