In celebration of Media Literacy Week, MASCLab is playtesting LAMBOOZLED!, our deck-building card game designed to teach youth news literacy! Join us in Horace Mann 424 on Wednesday, October 23rd during our usual meeting time (12:00 – 1:00PM) for a research demo and playtesting.
Grounded in current research on news literacy and youth media habits, LAMBOOZLED! is a deck-building card game set in the fictional sheep town of Green Meadows — where, as the game’s tagline reads, “some news stories just want to pull the wool over your eyes!” Players must help the sheep citizens of Green Meadows figure out what’s true and what’s not, by using their best evidence to win them over.
The game was developed by faculty and students at the Media & Social Change Lab (MASCLab), Teachers College, Columbia University. Graphics and design by Giovanni Spadaro.
LAMBOOZLED! is currently in the final playtesting stage, and will be made available online soon. Stay tuned!
