Not a single newbie gamer turned up. Apart from the two clue masters, only 7 other people turned up, none of them new to the Uni let alone new to gaming.
I guess that irrespective of what certain people insist upon, the gaming society is NOT a social (large scale) society. It’s still about small cliques of gaming buddies with very little reason to meet in larger groups.
A friend and I created a treasure hunt last weekend. A crossword of various clues that will take people from place to place within the town until they reach their final destination.
I won’t be doing the treasure hunt, as I already know the answers, but I will be waiting at the destination hoping to meet some newbie gamers.
After ages of not posting to my former blog, I decided to migrate to some proper blog code. I am now using blogger. I threw together a template that looks mostly like my old site, to make it feel comfortable. The management tools (making posts, etc) for this is so much nicer, I might actually post more often… don’t count on it though 😉
The Learning Technology team spent the 5th-7th September in Edinburgh for the 2006 ALT-Conference. Much was considered in the realm of online learning, knowledge repositories, etc.
