artifact description
This project is an extension of previous work dealing with the use of Role Playing Games in the classroom as pedagogical tools. Specifically, we were asked to refine and evaluate lessons learned from previous iterations of the Nuclear Proliferation game and to evaluate new initiatives in the game process. Also, we will be making a first attempt at what we will call the "game box" concept, where we will try to make this entire game process accessible to a much larger group of people with much less preparation before the game can be run.
