Dinosaurs Invade Liverpool!

Rawr!

The Liverpool Public Library in Liverpool, NY, came to the Game Designers' Guild to ask for help in running an event.  We worked with them to craft an adventure that would transform kids into dinosaurs and go back in time!

The kids first were able to do some research on dinosaurs and decide what they wanted to be.  We then painted their face with the features they wanted and they could make a custom tail.

After this, they were sent out through a Time Tunnel and then were back in the time of the dinosaurs.

They were able to work through a series of challenges - finding eggs, making trees, helping paper "pteradactyls" fly, and working together to cross the chocolate swamp.

There are more pictures from the day at

We're looking forward to another event!

I've uploaded the original script for the game at http://scottnicholson.com/pubs/bethedinosaur.pdf

Note to self. "Must read more carefully" Coming from Liverpool, England I was quite excited for a moment, thinking you had discovered us. Hey ho, back to our, "must keep silent" library.
