Ticket Giveaway: Game Designer Jane McGonigal at Concordia

Posted by Alison Hallett on Tue, Sep 18, 2012 at 10:44 AM

Games designer/theorist Jane McGonigal wrote a great book a while ago called Reality Is Broken, which argues that the reason humans spend three billion hours a week playing online games is that games are better and more engaging than reality as most of us experience it, in part because games tap into the best parts of us. She's interested in ways gaming and its principles can be applied to real-life scenarios—she's also a fascinating speaker, and I've got three pairs of tickets to see her speak Thursday night at Concordia. To enter to win 'em, just email me by 9 am tomorrow with "epic win" in the headline, and your full name in the email. Winners will hear back tomorrow by 10 am.

UPDATE! This post originally said the event was tomorrow night—it's Thursday! Sorry :(
