A while back, I started playing with the idea of making a parody game. I wanted to adapt the board game ‘The Game of Life’, into a game about academia. Not necessarily as a critique, but as a playful jest and a starting point for reflection on our profession.
After a long haul and a lot of drawing, my first draft is finally finished. You can find the manual and the game board below. Comments and suggestions are always welcome, as any prototype has room for improvement.
The next step is to have all the components printed and to organise play test sessions with my colleagues. I will upload pictures as soon as this happens.
(yes, the PDF files are very large, I know)
