5a7 – Would you like to ‘MAKESENSE’ together?

Join us on May 2nd, for an in-depth playtest of MAKESENSE, a game in development for almost 2 years by TAG MFA student Gabriel Beck.

MAKESENSE is a card game, that is both competitive and collaborative at the same time. To win this game you need to listen others, see how they feel, while creating new meanings and a collective intelligence together.

This playtest will put the latest edition of the printed rule-book to the test as well. Game designer Gabriel Beck will be present to observe how new players understand the game and interpret the rule-book.

Interested in new forms of communication, in the deconstruction of language? Do you dare to connect to others and reveal yourself in a vulnerable way? Come and find out whether MAKESENSE can potentially be a transforming and collective experience?

There will be food and drinks! This is a full 2-hour 5a7, so we ask everyone to arrive on time and stay the whole length of the playtest & discussion.

WHAT? playtest + discussion
WHEN? 2nd May, Thursday – 5pm to 7pm
WHERE? TAG (Concordia, EV 11.435, 1515 SteCatherine W., Montreal)
