Ever wonder how board games are designed? Join MODA's Executive Director Laura Flusche for a discussion with board game designer Elizabeth Hargrave, whose game Wingspan was an overnight hit when it was released in 2019, has gone on to sell over a million copies in over 18 languages, and won the 2019 Kennerspiel des Jahres for hobby games — the Oscar of board games.

The conversation will touch on subjects such as:
What inspired Elizabeth to become a board game designer
How she came to create beautiful, nature-based games like Wingspan and Mariposas, a game about butterfly migration, both of which are featured in MODA's current exhibition Full Circle: Design Without End.
The process of designing, pitching, selling, and publishing a boardgame, from prototyping to playtesting to printing
How Wingspan has impacted the real-life of some of its players
And, why so few board game designers are women
