Polemical Game with a point of view
DUE : In class and PDF Thursday May 17th

Design a board game for 1-8 players that has a point of view on a subject that you care about and have a clear point of view that you want to communicate to your players!

You do not need to present any kind of “balanced” point of view - the point of this assignment is to try and get a point of view across – in fact the less “fair an balanced” your point of view is the more in line with the assignment you will be.

Other requirements:
1. Use the laser cutter for this project !
2. This is a three week project – get a head start as we expect more polish and more complex games this time
3. In your design, think about how you balance the intent of the game creator is conveying a point of view and what agency the player has within your system

DUE: game in class and PDF with images posted on the Due date
