 Cobble CardsCome play Cobble Cards, a game-making game that takes you through idea generation to (paper) prototype! 

Cobble Cards is a simple card game that can be used by small teams within a workshop or classroom to generate and discuss rough game concepts in a short period of time. This ideation game was created by Patrick von Hauff with the assistance of David Holmes at the University of Alberta with support from the GRAND-NCE research community.

The game consists of a deck of “constraint cards,” bearing words and short phrases that teams must incorporate into the development of a game concept. There are three main categories of constraints:Who, Where/When and Wild cards. Additional cards may be added to the deck as desired.

The game has three phases:

  1. Idea Generation
  2. Prototyping
  3. Discussion of Prototypes.

This is a GI members only event.
