How I Use It
This was used as a supplement to a game design class. It's a fun, eye catching introduction. Not really enough to work with for very long, but it gets a point across well and is very basic to reach all students.
My Take
I wouldn't use this for long, but it's a fun option to get kids into thinking about the concepts of game design.
