a refugees' story
Hello, I am Amy Marks, a social game designer. In the board game I made, you are placed in the position of refugee and are about to embark on a journey towards safety in Europe. Sometimes the journey may seem unfair but, sadly, that is how things go in real life.

Everything you are about to encounter in this game is based on true stories and events. All the situations, all the statistics and all the characters are based on the research I have done.

I have worked together with external partners that have helped me with developing the game.

I made this board game to show that I can use games to make difficult subjects easier to digest and discuss. This board game works best in combination with Educational programs that are offered at high school 5th or 6th years by Organizations like “Vluchtelingen werk Nederland”

With this project I make a difficult subject more accessible and profile myself as a social game designer. Which is what I would like to do in the future.

If you would like to lern more, please come and take a look at the graduation exhibition.
