2 speakers of this month’s Sharing Day, Andre and Rio, have a super interesting title for their sessions. Andre’s session was about “Transmedia Non-Fictional Book to Board Game: Case Study of Il Principe” while Rio’s session was about “Visual Manipulation and Its Implementation Through Stereoscopic Technique”. Both have 30 – 60 minutes to share about it to the team.
Andre is the first one and he shared about how a board game can be created based on non-fictional book. Il Principe, released in 2005 by AMIGO Spiel + Freizeit GmbH, is a board game set during Renaissance in Italy where each player will compete in an auction to create buildings in the city and the player with the most Victory Points will win. While the board game consists of 3 factors: building, profession and map, the book covered a more comprehensive detail on acquisition, preservation, and use of political power. After the sharing, we conclude that critical thinking is needed to understand the context when we want to do transmedia from non-fictional source to board game.
In the second session, Rio showed us his own creation of cardboard viewer. He shared about how stereoscopic works using the cardboard viewer he made. We also got to know the difference between the anaglyph 3D glasses with blue and cyan lens and polarized 3D glasses that we use now in cinema. After Rio’s session, somehow we were intrigued to create a board game using visual manipulation and 3D effects. Sounds interesting, isn’t it?
