Bus Fare a Problem?

Tell Me More...

The very basic building blocks of the game have been prepared for you already, with the aim to investigate environmental pollution and how disparate groups can come together to deal with it for the good of all. You’ll first be developing the theme, whether you decide it should be simulating global problems, local problems or maybe even imagining the issues faced on a colonised alien world. You will then be designing the pieces & board and adding new cards & rules to have a fully functional board game that people will actually want to play.
You’ll learn many skills, including: consumer research, writing flavour text & product photography!
After the initial concept is decided, you’ll be guided through the 3D-printing, laser cutting and graphic design processes, getting to work with software that will make your ideas a reality!

Anything Else?

Light snacks will be provided but please eat before coming to sessions as we won’t be having a break for food. Pizza will be provided at the final session!
