Event description
What awesome board game mashup will you create?

About this Event

At the Mix n Mash Tabletop Design Challenge, you join a small team (2-4 people) and combine two board games to create a mashup that is uniquely yours!

At each biannual installment of the event, each team will have their own copy of one Featured Game to use. The Featured Game for February 2020 is Rock Paper Wizard, designed by Canadian trio Josh Cappel, Sen-Foong Lim and Jay Cormier! This game of second-guessing and dramatic reversals is like rock paper scissors, but each gesture casts a different spell as players try to outdo each other with the intent of snagging the most loot from the dragon!

While the Featured Game for each team is the same, your second game will be different, as you will draw two random games from a pool, and choose one (with up to two redraws). Don't worry if you aren't familiar with the games, as the hosts will explain how they work. Then the mashing begins!

Your team must use some elements from both games, such as theme, components or mechanisms. However, you can omit or alter any of the original elements, or add in your own! A selection of prototyping materials will also be available to use on the day, including tokens, dice, blank cards, etc. Let your imagination run wild.

When you have an idea of how your game will work, it's time to start creating, playtesting and reiterating it. Of course, don't forget to give awesome names to your team and game.

Then, Jay Cormier, co-designer of Rock Paper Wizard and more than 20 other games, makes a special appearance, and gives feedback and encouragement on everyone's mashups!

And of course, prizes! Jay will choose one mashup as the winner, with one simple criterion: the game he wants to play most. Each member of the winning team will win a gift card from Rain City Games! (amount TBD)

In addition, each team will get to keep their copy of Rock Paper Wizard! You'll have to decide among yourselves who takes it home.

By joining the event you'll also automatically be entered to win a door prize, including the following:

Storm Crow hat

Storm Crow playing cards

Cthulhu tiki mug

Meeple Leaf t-shirt

More copies of Rock Paper Wizard in shrink (we have 10 total and will give the remaining copies away as door prizes)

We would prefer if you bought your ticket in advance so that we know how many to expect, but alternatively you can pay at the door. Tickets are non-refundable but are fully transferable. If the event is cancelled, all tickets purchased will be refunded in full.

You are not required to make a food and/or drink purchase at Storm Crow. However, as they have generously allowed us to use the space for an extended time, and you have to eat anyway, why not show your support for the host venue by buying your meal there.

Minors are allowed, as long as they are with their legal guardian. If they join as part of your team, then you will need to buy a ticket for them regardless of age.
