Watch Richard Garfield’s talk at ITU

Did you miss Richard Garfield‘s talk at the IT University of Copenhagen last Friday, September 13th?

Then no worries, we’ve got you covered. We managed to record the entire presentation, plus the questions from the audience afterwards into one single video. We had a few technical issues at the beginning of the talk, but afterwards everything went quite smooth.

The talk itself was quite the success! We had over 350 people attending the event plus all those watching the talk online through our livestream. The event even received media coverage on Danish media outlets such as DR’s Troldspejlet and Berlingske.

After his talk about luck in games, Garfield spent over 20 minutes signing autographs on cards and game boxes, making sure that all the attendees were pleased.

And if you weren’t there, we hope you will also enjoy the talk through our livestream recording:

Luck vs. Skill in Games talk by Magic: The Gathering creator

EDIT: Due to the high amount of participants who have shown interest on Facebook, we have decided to move the talk to the biggest auditorium at ITU: Auditorium 1.

Richard Garfield, Ph.D. in Combinatorial Mathematics from the University of Pennsylvania, best known for being the designer of the wildly popular collectible card game Magic: The Gathering, will be giving a talk at the IT University of Copenhagen on Luck in Games.

Now, if you’ve been following our news here, you already know that Garfield is one of the speakers lined up for this month’s board-games focused SpilBar 16 event alongside Reiner Knizia.

But this is not going to be the only chance you got to see him talk!

Whereas his talk during SpilBar will focus on gameplay balancing, the one IGDA Denmark will be hosting at the IT University of Copenhagen will focus on Luck in Games and will, ironically, be taking place in September, Friday 13th.

The talk is open for everyone (as long as there is space available), so even if you plan on attending the SpilBar event (which you totally should!) you are more than welcome to join this really interesting talk.

And, with the talk being on a Friday afternoon, you will be able to stop by ITU’s Scrollbar after the talk for a drink or two.

Date and time: September, Friday 13th at 14:00
Location: IT University of Copenhagen (Rued Langgaards Vej, 7) – Auditorium 1

We’re looking forward to seeing you around!
