Have you ever played a game and thought it was missing something? What would you do to make it better?
Some games just fail at being the ‘perfect’ game and we want to teach you how to change that!
Join us for our family “Fail Game Jam” where we take a look at some of our favourite games and we work together to make them better. 
Workshop will be led by Laurier Game Librarian, Michelle Goodridge.

In partnership with the Laurier Library and the WLU Game Design and Development Program.
