Game Design Cards
These are used in our game design classes to give students prompts and examples when reviewing games. We have found major improvements in student participation in class when they have something to start with. It may sound silly but printing these out, cutting them up and handing students an actual set of seven cards to write on made a big difference. Download Game Design Cards here.
