We just finished our first Games & Simulations Book Club.
It ran for five weeks, had two tracks and ended up with over
17 hours of discussion over Google Hangout.

If you'd like to take at the sites and the playlist here they are:

Book Club Site
Book Club Google + Community

Hangout Recordings Playlist

We liked it so much that we want to do it again. We'd also like your input on what Tracks and what books you'd like to read.

What do you think and what would you like to see? To get you started, here's some suggestions on topics and books:



Game Studies

Game Based Learning

ARG (Alternate Reality Game)

Interactive Fiction

Non- Fiction Books

The Massively Multi-Player Classroom by Lee Sheldon

Minecraft: Essential Handbook: An Official Mojang Book

The Art of Game Design: A Book of Lenses by Jesse Shell

A Theory of Fun for Game Design by Raph Koster

What Video Games Have to Teach Us About Learning and Literacy by Jim Gee

Young Adult Novel

We'll leave that up to you!

Thanks, Kae
