This year’s European Geoscience Union General Assembly will feature the first ever, and totally unofficial (at the moment), Geoscience Games Day. It has been organised by SeriousGeoGamer Chris Skinner, the creative Sam Illingworth, the inventive Rolf Hut, and the volcanic Jazmin Scarlett. All the details are in the image below.
SeriousGeoGames will be supporting the Geoscience Games Night, both by providing the drinks (free beer!) and bringing along some of our games and will be debuting our prototype deck-builder card game, Flood: Attack & Defend. Below you will find a list of the games we know people are bringing, but do feel free to bring your own along too. Let us know if you’re bringing a game and we’ll add it to the list.
