Update: All spaces have been filled for the Richard Garfield lecture.  There will be a queue for those without RSVP and if there are open seats before the lecture begins, we will fill them on a first come, first serve basis.  Thank you for your enthusiastic response to the Lecture Series!

Next Thursday, April 21, the Game Center will be hosting a lecture by Richard Garfield, creator of Magic: The Gathering, the game that introduced the collectible card game genre. An accomplished game designer and math professor, Garfield has created a number of other board and card games in his career and has just recently begun designing digital games including titles such as Spectromancer and Schizoid.

The format for the evening will be a short lecture followed by a general discussion moderated by Game Center Interim Director Frank Lantz. The audience is encouraged to join the discussion. Please bring your questions and ideas about tonight’s topic and overall subject of games in general.

The talk will begin at 7:00 PM at 721 Broadway, Room 006 and is open to students, faculty, and the general public. We welcome everyone, whether your research and teaching is related to games or you are simply curious about this rapidly evolving field. Please come, and feel free to bring any interested NYU colleagues.

Refreshments will be served.
