Vancouver Mediators’ Lounge is ready for Halloween with a zombie-themed visit from PignPotato Game co-founders. Joan Braun and I will bring our prototype decks of Zombie Fight or Flight, the new collaborative card game from PignPotato Games. Zombie Fight or Flight is a fast paced, easy to learn card game where we survive together or die trying.
PignPotato is a group of 7 local mediators, lawyers and creatives who came together out of the 2016 CoRe Jolts Game Jam to create games designed as tools for DR, including Mediate BC Roster mediators Sharon Sutherland, Joan Braun and Amanda Semenoff.
We will discuss the place of games in DR processes, describe our journey from Game Jam to Game Creation and play a few rounds of Zombie Flight or Flight. This is the last chance to preview the game before its Kickstarter Launch October 24.
We are still collecting feedback on the game for the training manual that accompanies the game for use by trainers, mediators and teachers. We would love more input from other DR professionals.
El Santo is a great venue with a modern take on Mexican cuisine, easy walking distance from the New Westminster Skytrain. Favourite fare includes fresh tortillas, white cranberry sangria and grilled caesar salad.
We look forward to seeing you there!
