本校應用哲學系龜遊伴伴桌遊團隊，於10月4日至8日，與「台灣桌遊設計」廠商（Taiwan Boardgame Design）攜手合作於德國埃森（Essen）展出系上自創桌遊「再建六龜」。
Dept. Applied Philosophy Board Game Team at our school, in cooperation with the “Taiwan Boardgame Design” company, exhibited their self-designed board game “Rebuilding LiouGuei” in Essen, Germany, from October 4th to 8th.
The Essen fair, held annually in October, is the world’s largest and longest-standing board game exhibition, with its attendance growing from over 5,000 attendees at the beginning to over 200,000 visitors now. Since the establishment of the Turtle Companion Board Game Team in the Department of Applied Philosophy in 2019, participating in this exhibition has been their goal.
龜遊伴伴團隊赴德國參展最大的收穫，即是獲得德國當地Podcaster （Luft nach oben）的訪談邀約，他對於學生們介紹這套桌遊，以及應用哲學系使用桌遊的方式很感興趣，希望透過訪談進一步了解龜遊伴伴團隊的工作。團隊也與其中一位德國高中老師，對遊戲有許多深入的討論，並且也送出一組桌遊讓老師可以在課堂上使用，這也開創出「再建六龜」桌遊未來國際跨域的教育發展方向。
The board game “Rebuilding Liouguei ” is a product of the long-standing relationship between our school and the Liouguei community. It tells the story of Liouguei through the board game, as well as the team’s journey of growth alongside Liouguei in facing environmental and social challenges.
The most significant achievement of the team during their trip to Germany was being invited for an interview by a local German podcaster, Luft nach oben. He was interested in the students’ introduction of the board game and the way the Department of Applied Philosophy uses board games, and he hoped to gain a deeper understanding of the Turtle Companion team’s work through the interview. The team also had in-depth discussions with a German high school teacher who showed a keen interest in their game. They even presented a board game set for the teacher to use in his classroom, which opened up possibilities for the future international cross-disciplinary educational development of “Rebuilding Liouguei.”
In this sharing session, they will explain the exhibition process, including how they contacted the company for booth rental, prepared the booth setup, conducted demonstrations, prepared materials in English, and the cultural and thought impact felt by the students. They will also share many touching and unexpected stories that occurred during the process.
