Meet Matteo and play his latest boardgame prototypes. Learn about his research into the V&A collection of games and how these are inspiring him to create new ones.

Matteo is obsessed with games, but not the typical kill-everyone-loot-everything type. He draws inspiration from social issues and current events to make games that provoke minimum playable dilemmas.

He believes games have a huge expressive potential. They can make complex systems understandable, and empower people to engage with tough questions. Beyond just playing games, we can have the most transformative learning experiences when we make games.
