NMS 280M — Tabletop Role Playing Games

Course Description:

The past several decades have seen an explosion of innovative board games, card games, miniatures games, and pen-and-paper games, many of which involve role-playing (which is when players act out personas other than their own). Using theory, exposure to numerous games, and actual play, students will explore the design, mechanics, and social elements of non-digital, tabletop role-playing games.
