The concept of "Serious games" is those games where the main purpose of the game is not pure entertainment. These games can be used for educational or training purposes, or can be used to address a social issue. A serious game can also be a game designed for recreational purposes that is being used in an educational context.
The purpose of this guild is to bring together those using games for serious purposes. While the primary focus in the guild are tabletop games, discussions about face to face simulations and digital games are also welcome.
If you are an educator, trainer, or volunteer using games in a serious way, come on in and join us! We will be talking about our own projects, opportunities for conferences, and sharing resources related to serious games.
