To make it easier to ask questions about Imagine Cup and Game Design, I’ve set up a series of “virtual office hours” where anyone can connect in, online or on the phone, and get in touch with me directly.

These are scheduled for approximately every two weeks between now and the close of Round 2 of Imagine Cup next year, and while I understand it will be primarily students wanting info on Imagine Cup, this invite is for anyone who has questions about Imagine Cup, Game Design or building games and apps for the Windows Phone, Xbox 360 or Windows.

My meeting times are:

  • November 4, 2011 – 3.00–4.30PM US Pacific
  • November 22, 2011 – 6.00-7.30PM US Pacific
  • December 5, 2011 – 11.30PM-1.00AM US Pacific
  • December 19, 2011 – 6.00-7.30AM US Pacific
  • January 12, 2012 – 10.30PM-12.00AM US Pacific
  • January 26, 2012 – 3.00-4.30PM US Pacific
  • February 10, 2012 – 3.00-4.30PM US Pacific
  • February 27, 2012 – 6.30-8.00PM US Pacific
  • March 8, 2012 – 8.30-10.00PM US Pacific

UPDATE! I am cancelling the final office hours because it coincides with the official Game Design live meeting tomorrow. If you would like to get some last minute discussion, Q&A or feedback please check out the Imagine Cup Game Design page for details.
