Welcome to an evening of time twister game play
Venue: Kunstakademiet i Trondheim bibliotek/library, 7, Inherredsveien, 7014 Trondhheim
Time: 17.00 to 19.00
Date: Wed 12th Feb

These games come to you from the future (2070) playing with the history we are making in the North of Norway.

2 of the groups in the NTNU Experts in Teamwork intensive village “North by Northeast: A free passage from Norway to China” at Kunstakadmiet I Trondheim have made board games and they will be available for a game session on Wed 12th Feb and you are all invited!

Kongekrabbe Mahjong (King Crab Majong)
Game designers: Ingvild Stensby Bakken, Yiu Him Cheung, Ole Kristoffer Lie Kvien, Sondre Albertsen Vasseng, Tonje Ryeng Rushfeldt

Our design is based on the traditional Chinese game, Mahjong, modified into 4 main groups: culture, nature, infrastructure and geopolitics, plus a function group that will trigger events (e.g. extinction, earthquake, financial crisis, etc) to change the Mahjong game and the parameters on the world map. Players will receive a hidden mission at the start of each round and a group common mission for each round. To win the game, all parameters of the world have to reach a certain level and it's the players choice how they want to shape the world.

The Northeast Passage
Game designers: Jonas Madslien Bakken, John Andreas Kjekstad, Jorge Boco Tusoy, Anita Othilie Fjeld, Kevin Kristiansen

The game takes place in the past, in 2020, at the time when the first ships started to sail their way through the northeast passage. This was a serious challenge back then, and through the stories of an old Chinese man you hear how things have changed over the years. He challenges you to go back to 2020 to experience the northeast passage by yourselves. Can you make it all the way to Kirkenes?

We will also screen "News Report" another project by one of the EiT groups.
A news report from the year 2070 celebrating 50 years of their channel. The news casters pretend to be in 2020, hosting “debates” and “street interviews” as if they were a forgotten format. The News Reel broadcast news from the year 2070, stories of hurricanes to sporting events in the North East passage, scrolling under critical debates between ship owners and environmentalists.
