CAA 2017 Presentation on Heritage Board Game

My UCF Digital Media colleague Peter Smith and I recently returned from a thought-provoking and fun panel on conveying heritage through board games.  CAA (Computer Applications in Archaeology) 2017 was hosted by Georgia State in Atlanta, and Peter and I presented on a board game prototype that presented Peruvian cultural heritage through game mechanics that required players to simulate reciprocal thinking and decision-making.  The panel was organized by Erik Champion from Curtin University in Australia, who a week later came to UCF to give a talk on virtual heritage, serious games, and cultural learning.  Thanks to SVAD’s Games Research Lab for letting us use a space in their lab for brainstorming and developing the prototype!
