Creative Space is based on decision making processes. This board game was part of the San José State University BFA Graphic Design Senior Thesis Show in December 2013.

Each game starts off with a design brief and subject matter. Throughout the game, prompts are given to the players, which they can accomplish individually and through collaboration. The purpose of the game is to simulate creative thinking through the different view points and tasks that might be presented when working on a project.
