It’s time to enroll for Play4Agile again, a serious gaming unconference in Germany.
So, last year this happened: I made a Playpplication [blog] to apply for a spot. Except I forgot to fill in the official form that goes with it.
Oh well, “Ordnung muss sein” I guess… Anyway, my application wasn’t processed and I ended up on spot #42 on the waiting list… which meant I never got to attend it. 🙁
Once again I’m hoping to join the serious games unconference Play4Agile next year, so here is my Playpplication. 🙂
I love checking out new (un)conferences every year, but this one around serious games is becoming a regular one for me. Serious gaming is the act of using games or game metaphors to explain certain concepts, amplify group dynamics, let people experiment in a safe environment or as a learning tool.
I like Play4Agile specifically because the attendees create a safe and open environment where everyone feels free to experiment, fail and learn a lot together. There hasn’t been a year I wasn’t inspired to try multiple games afterwards or I didn’t get to experiment with multiple concepts I had in my mind. Hoping to get through the lottery and see this tribe again next February!
Will keep you updated.
[EDIT]: I forgot to fill in some form, so I’m at spot #42 on the waiting list, which means I’ll not be attending this year…
