The Glass Plate Game came out of the effort of several people to develop rules for the Glass Bead Game as alluded to in Hermann Hesse's book Magister Ludi. The Glass Plate Game was first constructed as a table top display, glued to a piece of cardboard and placed in a shallow wood box, covered by a glass plate, hence the name. A chess set was used for pieces. Also some of the sybols were photgraphs without ideas attached.
Reading this book is optional. If you would like to obtain a copy of this book, you can order one through the OSU Bookstore or borrow a copy from one of the instructors.
