The Metagame: Discuss and Design
Sean Duncan, Colleen Macklin, John Sharp

The revised Metagame (designed and published by Local No. 12) features 250 cards representing cultural artifacts -- from Pride and Prejudice to the Big Mac -- as well as comparison cards ("Which will save the world?"). Using the Metagame, we seek to present Games+Learning+Society attendees the opportunity to learn about playful approaches to discussion and culture, as well as practice game design skills using the Metagame as a "game design toolkit" to remix and modify. The bulk of the workshop will be design-focused, with attendees encouraged to create new game designs using the Metagame that address curricular and disciplinary interests of the session's participants. Games designed in the session will be critiqued, as will the Metagame itself, with participant designed games shared online for other educators and researchers to engage with.
