Event Details

Come out and play some never before seen board games created by UW DAC 300/ENGL 303/SPCOM 300 students and GI members as well as some old favorites. Their task was to create a game concept based on a William Shakespeare play, but they had to replace original settings with space and science-fiction settings, and space characters. 

Board games and snacks will be provided.
