Book launch Apply Play to get ahead of the game

This friday april 20th was finally the booklaunch of 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: it was a super evening with many personal plus business connections present.

More info about the book can be found here >>

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.

The book can be ordered here: buy the book Online >> also available on and soon on Amazon.
