StudCie: Game Design Workshop

Date: Wednesday 19 March
Time: from 15:00 till 17:00
Location: Nijenborgh 5116.0116

Have you ever wanted to know how to design a game? Either a board game or a digital game, the design decisions and problems of both have a lot of similarities. In this workshop the ins and outs of game design will be explained. The practical part will be where you create your own prototype during the workshop using these basic elements. So if you're new to this field and interested to know more about it, or you've been working on games on your own without knowing actual design principles, this workshop might be interesting for you.

If you have any questions and/or remarks, don't hesitate to mail to

Actie: Dodgeball against Stuff

Date: Monday 24 March
Time: 20:00
Location: Struikhal (ACLO)

You remember those times when you played dodgeball in secondary school? It was awesome right throwing a ball at your opponents as hard as possible. To make it even more awesome, this time we will not be playing against Cover members, but against the study association Stuff. Stuff is the study association for Philosophy, so proof for once and for all that we are the best! Covers' name is at stake.

Afterwards we will go into the city and have a few drinks with the members of Stuff. More information on the locations will be announced soon!

Do you find yourself wondering about what you can possibly do when you are done with your education? Then the Graduate Lectures is for you!

Afterwards there will be a borrel where you can ask your questions in a more informal setting.
