Have you heard the phrase “the game of politics?” See if there is truth in these often uttered words when game designer Luke Peterschmidt and historian Denver Brunsman explore using the science of game design to analyze the Constitution and our political system. Join us for this conversation moderated by Benjamin Stokes, co-founder of Games for Change.

Reservations are recommended; seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. The doors to the building will open 45 minutes prior to the start of the program.
