Play Against Hate - TONIGHT

Tonight the BGNlab will be hosting a thematic play session in protest of the Faith Goldy talk taking place on the Waterloo campus this evening. You can find out more about the speaker, this talk and why we oppose it in Steve Wilcox’s open letter to the university and his radio discussion. Our program is dedicated to making games with real world outcomes and often this is about addressing social issues. Tonight you are invited to come and play games against hate, ignorance and injustice as a way of responding to the intolerant opinions represented by Goldy in our own terms. 

 

Time: 7:15pm - 9:15pm (coinciding with the talk) 

Location: BGNlab 

 

The playlist is a WIP but will include: 

Titles from the Anti-fascist Game Jam    

Lost Wage Rampage 

Papers, Please

Hair Nah!

Easy Level Life 

So You’ve Been Called Out 

Parable of the Polygons

Syrian Journey

Freedom: The Underground Railroad 

We can even mod boardgames in the lab… 

 

You can play along at home using the hashtags #playagainsthate and #Laurier (the latter totally optional)  

Hope to play against hate with you later!
