The new exhibit Chances Are… opens April 2 in the Museum’s Central Core Gallery. This display features a variety of games of chance, including the ancient Mesopotamian Royal Game of Ur, roulette, bingo, and Decktet, Games Magazine’s 2013 Card Game of the Year.

 

This project is part of the third annual Spring Symposium held by Playful by Design, an interdisciplinary game studies consortium at the University of Illinois. The Symposium features demonstrations, discussions, panels, and presentations highlighting technology, pedagogy, and design as they relate to gaming and game design.

For the first hour, guests can enjoy a reception with game demonstrations and remarks by exhibit lender Professor David Dubin. At 4:00 pm, special guest Lual Mayen, founder of Junub Games and leader in the field of social impact games, presents the keynote talk. Mayen began developing the peace-building game Salaam while a refugee in Northern Uganda.
