This is kind of a broad topic, but I play a wide variety of games and enjoy many aspects of them, from chess to card games to that blasted Minesweeper! Want to know why you never land on Boardwalk in Monopoly? We can talk about that too!

I will teach you how to make video games! I teach the following programs:

Scratch 2.0 - a great program to learn for beginners or children 8 and up! Put together code "blocks" like puzzle pieces to program your game!

Stencyl - For making games without typing code! Similar to Scratch where blocks of code are used, but much more powerful!

Unity - For making 2D and 3D games. We will use a little bit of C# language to code the games!

Game Art - Create game art and animation sprites for your games using Adobe Animate and Adobe Photoshop!

Children or Adults can take any of these programs. I recommend 8+ years for Scratch and 10+ years for Unity. 12+ years to really get into more actual c# coding.

Start your path to becoming a game maker today!

I am a noncompetitive, competitive, hardcore casual gamer (if that makes any sense to you). I have played at least 7 systems of ttrpg, several video games, and I own a growing collection of board games. I have facilitated teaching board games during a 3 day lanathon, mainly Catan, and know the strategy to winning a game of monopoly against those who do not. I also know how to safely transport 99.999999% of your tamed parrots from one thousand blocks away, through hill and dale and pools of lava, back to your home base in Minecraft. If you want to learn the basics of being a gamemaster, getting into the zen of an open box video game and optimizing your mundane chores, or getting your friends to hate you in Exploding Kittens, Catan, or Monopoly, I'm your teach.
