Celestial Borders (December 2020)
A Co-op Board Game
In line with my study of international borders and ports of entry in the US, I wanted to create a board game that asks players to help each other cross a fictional border together. The game is a critical look at how systematic bias and prejudice create unequal experiences of border crossing for different demographics. Instead of merely recreating systems of oppression, however, I have designed rules and mechanics that allow players to deconstruct and skip unfair security policies enacted in the game.
