City of Immigrants: Winner of the 2015 International Serious Play Awards

The City of Immigrants supports the study of immigration, the labor movement, and cultural identity in the American History curriculum. The game put players in the role of Lena Brodsky, a 14-year-old Russian Jewish teen who has recently immigrated to New York City in 1907. As Lena makes the Lower East Side her home, she struggles to support her family and becomes part of the growing labor movement.
