Book launch Apply Play to get ahead of the game
I want to thank THNK Academy for providing me this location, in the modules, with my THNK class #5 participants, the idea of writing a book on gamedesign was planted, and now almost three years later…. it is DONE.
With the supergreat help of Darcie Goodwin, my super reader-helpers, and finally Rick Verhoog who managed to make it a beautifull product, and off-course the printers: Chapo.team it was a super evening with many personal plus business connections present.
There were drinks, goof food plus sunshine. After the welcome words, the thank you’s, some inside information about the importance of play was shared, why and how a game is an invitation to explore and widen borders. How life and topics can change when looking through a playful (pinkish) lens. Then every invitee was waring a unique game element, which they choose at the entrance. These buttons were their lottery to win a book plus a Foooty (as a representation of Johan Huizinga’s magic circle.
