Dear Gamedidactics friends,

I am so sorry to have missed the live conference! As you may know, a freak windstorm knocked out my town’s electricity and Internet. I was awake most of the night trying to find a way to reconnect, but alas it was not meant to be.

Perhaps there is a silver lining, however!

Now I can share with you a recording of the talk that I made today, which you can download and share and use to teach others how to play the game 100 Ways Anything Could Be Different in the Future. I hope this recording is even more useful to you than watching the game live!

I’ve included below links to 3 Google forms that we can all use in the next week to play the game asynchronously together. Just click on the links to each Google form when you get to the “Now, let’s play together!” portion of the video.

Also, please feel free to reach out to me by email ( or on Twitter @avantgame if you have any questions or feedback, I would have loved to hear from you during the live event.
