Istanbul Excursions

I haven't been able to update my website as organizing all of these events consume a lot of time. However, We have successfully made our first concert and on the 11th of February we will be going around the town to learn more about Istanbul, have fun, burn some calories, take photos, and practice English. Write to me to join our whatsapp group to learn more about the event and participate. We will be making these excursions twice a month.

On our first game week, we first talked about what makes a good game. We wrote down a list of criteria which are as follows:

Nathan(Ahmet)
  • A game should allow people to collaborate on a shared goal and create a feeling of unity, because competitive games make people fight with each other.
  • It should be neither too complicated nor too easy.
  • It should help the players learn through the activity and develop their skills.
  • It should be versatile and inclusive
  • Lukas(Barış)
  • It should be strategic, and should let people devise new ways to reach a goal.
  • There should be competition and a goal.
