Games People Play

I am organising an event in Stirling as part of the Festival of Social Science on the afternoon of Saturday 9th November. “Games People Play: Social Science in Games” is an introduction to some of the ideas studied by all sorts of social scientists, through playing games that have a variety of social science-related themes.

I am looking for volunteers to help on the day. If you’re enthusiastic about games, interested in social science (of any sort - whether sociology/economics/criminology/social policy/management/etc ….), and happy to chat to people while playing games, then I want to hear from you!

More details can be found here:
http://www.stir.ac.uk/social-science/news/games/

And if you're not a social scientist, then why not just come along on the day and play some games (both new and familiar) from a slightly different perspective ...

The exact games are still to be confirmed, but examples of the games being considered at the moment include Forbidden Island, Article 27, Mystery of the Abbey, The Resistance, Love letter, Merchant of Venus, Powergrid, Settlers of Catan, Agricola, Carcassonne, Gloom, Pandemic, Small World, Great Dalmuti, and Dixit. Suggestions are welcome too!

The event is free, but places are limited, so please sign-up at the web address above.

If you can help, or would like more information, please contact Alasdair Rutherford at ar34@stir.ac.uk or PM me.

Great idea. I've reposted this into the Edinburgh Gamers Guild

Volunteers Wanted to Play Games in Stirling on Sat 9th November 2013 - repost

You should also post on the Facebook pages of the Stirling Games shop: http://www.commongroundgames.co.uk/

And http://edinburghgamehub.co.uk/

Edit: I see it is held at Common Ground Games ... so I guess they are already involved!
