New Non-live group on Outschool
Board games have been a popular form of entertainment for centuries, providing hours of fun for people of all ages.
But did you know that creating board games can also help young learners develop a wide range of skills?
That's why ARI Learning is excited to offer a non-live group moderated by expert board game creator and instructor Yvonne.
Yvonne is a passionate board game player and D&D player/DM with years of experience in designing and creating her own board games.
In this group, she will post weekly questions, challenges, and suggestions on how to improve your board game creations. With monthly themes like Journey Board Game, Bunny and Spring Board Game, and Gardening/Food Production, learners will have plenty of inspiration to create their own unique board games.
One of the biggest benefits of creating board games is that it helps learners develop their critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Designing a game requires learners to think about game mechanics, balance, and strategy, as well as how to make their game fun and engaging. It also encourages learners to think outside the box and come up with creative solutions to problems.
Another important skill that learners can develop through board game creation is collaboration. Working with others to playtest and refine their games teaches learners how to give and receive constructive feedback, work as a team, and compromise to create the best possible game. This is an important skill in all areas of life and can help learners build strong relationships with others.
Creating board games can also help learners develop their communication and presentation skills. As learners playtest their games, they will need to explain the rules and mechanics to others, as well as listen to feedback and incorporate changes into their game. This can help learners become more confident speakers and presenters, as well as improve their ability to explain complex ideas to others.
Yvonne's expert guidance and the supportive community in this non-live group provide a safe and inspiring environment for young learners to explore, play, and develop their board game creations. So if your child is interested in learning how to build board games, mentor and encourage other designers, share tips, playtests, and reviews, - come join our group and let's inspire each other to create the best possible board games!
