Advanced Game w/ Billy Merritt ONLINE [workshop]

*This is a 4-week workshop*

Advanced Game Workshop:

Once you get the Game of the Scene, what do you do with it? This class will delve deeper in to playing the Game of the Scene. By exploring different approaches, [premise, organic, character, genre] you will find out the best way for you. We will also explore playing multiple or satellite Games in a scene. This seems like fun. I’m fun!
