hi! I'm a game designer and professor at Parsons School of Design in NYC.

The Metagame

The Metagame is a social card game about culture that encourages players to share their wildest and most intelligent ideas about everything – from Wonder Woman to the paintings of Jackson Pollock, unicorns to The Breakfast Club.

It’s also a game that has six different games to play. In the same way that a traditional deck of playing cards lets you play anything from solitaire to poker, The Metagame is like a game operating system with new games invented all the time.

You can buy The Metagame on Amazon, or download the full deck for free at http://metaga.me

The Metagame is a project of Local No. 12, the Union of Design and Play which also includes John Sharp and Eric Zimmerman.
