The students just keep coming. All of the seats are filled 10 minutes before the workshop is set to begin. As the instructor writes a series of guiding questions on the whiteboard, the final few stragglers — still on time — fill in the spaces between desks and backpacks. A confident voice rings out amid the hum of cheerful chatter:
At the EXPLO Game Studio, it’s not a question of “What’s luck and what’s skill?” but of what skills students are learning with each game they play.
Negotiation. Crafting a game plan and sticking to it. Being able to adjust on the fly. The art of reading an opponent. . . and the art of a strategic, well-placed piece of deception.
Students at EXPLO at Wellesley learn and employ each of these tactics at our Game Studio, a space for beginner and experienced gamers that also happens to be one of the most educational, animated, fierce, and fun places on campus.
