The Forum is a forthcoming game from Golden Dragon Studio. Agora (working title) is a party-style board game that reinforces the art of persuasive speaking known as rhetoric. Take on the role of a famous Greek philosopher and compete against other orators in presenting an argument on a specific topic using a mode of persuasion--either Ethos, Pathos, Logos, or Kairos. Win enough arguments and be awarded the title of Master Orator. This game is in the second round of beta testing with educators, including a workshop presentation at the New Jersey Writing Alliance (NJWA) Conference at Rutgers University on May 29th, 2019. Additional playtesting and development will lead up to a Kickstarter sometime in the next 10 months. The intention of the game is to not only educate students on the topics of History and Rhetoric, but also company and private learning environments as an educational and communication improvement tool.
