Premiere board game playtest at DigiFest!

The Medium is a board game inspired by the innovative thinker Marshall McLuhan (1911-1980), one of the most charismatic and far-reaching intellectuals of the 20th century.

Presented by Prof. Paolo Granata and his students in Book and Media Studies Program at St. Michael’s College at the University of Toronto, in partnership with the School of Design at George Brown College, this board game illustrates Marshall and Eric McLuhan’s Laws of Media (1988): the four constant rules that govern all human innovations – enhancing, obsolescing, retrieving, and reversal into.

By playing in partners, The Medium stimulates a player’s cooperative, innovative, strategic and creative thinking skills, and it also provides a means to cultivate awareness regarding the implications of media and technology, on both individual and societal levels.

Just wrap yourself up in the McLuhan’s Laws of Media and enjoy being the first to escape the vortex!
