The MediuM

A Marshall McLuhan Board Game




Inspired by legendary Canadian philosopher and innovative media thinker Marshall McLuhan (1911-1980), The MediuM is a gaming experience of Laws of Media. The New Science (1988), developed by Marshall McLuhan and his son Eric McLuhan (1942-2018). Also known as “McLuhans’ Tetrad”, the Laws of Media reveal the four constant rules that govern all human innovations, four questions that can be asked in order to understand the implications that will inevitably result from any medium.

An entertaining and educational board game that stimulates players’ cooperative, innovative, and creative thinking skills.

Educational and hilarious for the novice and expert alike, The MediuM is fast-paced, engaging and brainy fun that will have young and old laughing... as they learn out loud.

This game is played in teams of two or more players. Each round, one team member tries to get their team to guess the medium on the card. Clues take the form of answers to the four questions of The Laws of Media. Teams move along the board when a medium is guessed correctly, pulling themselves out of the Maelstrom.

Use The Medium to analyze an artifact or human innovation from the past or present, and enjoy being the first team to escape the media maelstrom!

This game is presented by the Estate of Marshall McLuhan and the McLuhan Foundation.
