Event description
What kind of crazy and totally awesome board game mashup will you make?

About this Event

Do you like board games and making stuff? This is the event for you!

Participants will form into groups of three. Bring your own friends, or make new ones!

Each group will get a copy of Rock Paper Wizard, by Canadian designers Josh Cappel, Jay Cormier and Sen-Foong Lim. Next you'll get a game drawn from a pool (draw 2 pick 1). Then you'll proceed to make a mashup of the two games!

You'll have about 3 hours to explore your two games, define their themes, mechanisms and components on our handy handout sheets...then throw all that out the window as you make the game into whatever you want! Well, you do need to use elements from both games, but you're allowed, and encouraged, to change or drop these elements, and add new ones as you see fit. We'll also provide a large selection of prototyping components for you to borrow from. All you need to bring is your creativity!

And finally...are you ready for this? JAY CORMIER, yes, one of the designers of Rock Paper Wizard, will show up, listen to everyone's pitch of their mashup, provide feedback, then pick a winning team! And this time will get prizes! (Details to follow.) There will also be door prizes that you'll qualify for just for taking part!

After the event you're free to stick around and play each other's games, or just mingle with the other game mashers! Storm Crow Alehouse is open until 1 am.

The fee for entering the Mix n Mash! Tabletop Design Challenge is $15 per person (tax and Eventbrite fee included). Fees are non-refundable, but can be transferred if something comes up. All participants must be 19+.

Storm Crow has very generously let us use a significant portion of their establishment for an extended period of time. We ask that you buy your meal there, so that hopefully we can hold more events at this super-cool venue in the future. Their food is AWESOME by the way, and they have a great selection of drinks too.
