Join us the Thursday before the next Watch the Skies: A Megagame to hear from one of the designers, Noam Strassfeld. At its barest a megagame is a game played by dozens of people (or more!), in person, in real time. Equal parts board game and role-playing game a megagame is much more than the sum of its parts. It’s an enormous, immersive story guided by the players choices where anything is possible, even replacing the pope with an alien or nuking Antarctica. Head game designer Noam Strassfeld will talk about the origins of megagames, what’s happening now and how to build your own megagame!

Free and open to the public.
