A Journey to Gender Equality (Board Game to address gender equality)

gender equality game

As the final project of the “Video Games and Education” course, I performed a leading role to develop “A Journey to Gender Equality”, a board game to address gender equality. I formulated innovative ideas, developed main mechanics, and designed all the card visuals.

The game is a fun and strategic board game, involving resources management, strategic thinking and achieves a good balance between chance, surprise element and strategy.

This game was selected to be presented on CUNY Game Festival 2016, one of the leading game-based learning conferences in NYC.
