Game Design at ZHdK


In Game Design at Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK), between 7 and 10 new board games are developed each year. First, rules and concepts are analyzed and the mechanics are questioned. In teams of two, students then develop their own board game, test and refine it, and design a playable prototype.
