Games and Warfare

Brooklyn Institute for Social Research @ 30 Irving Pl, New York, NY 10003

In this class we will explore both sides of this dialectic.

In what ways, from mathematical game theory to the shifting battlefields of the 21st century, is strategic thinking grounded in the logical processes of games? And how are these processes translated into material terms...

Storytelling Adaptation for Games

Playcrafting NYC @ 11 Times Square, New York, NY 10036
