Have you ever played a game and thought that if you took the components and threw away the rules there could be a completely different game on the table? Ever thought that you have a game design just waiting to come out if only you had someone to kick start you? Ever wanted to get insight into how a game design is taken from first thoughts through to publication? UK Games Expo Board game Re-design competition is for you!
Budding designers will be given a set of components of an already published game and will have 7 months to design a completely new game. Change the text on the card, adapt the pieces here, repurpose tokens there and voila; a new game is born.
Once designers have made their new games, given them a name, theme and play tested it a few times, it will be time to hand it back over to the team at Leisure Games, who will shortlist a handful of games. Then the shortlisted games will be handed over to a team of play test experts who will take each game through the rigors of a professional play test session by Playtest UK and give individual feedback. The shortlisted games will then be handed over to the final Judging Panel and will get a demonstration spot at UK Games Expo 2015 where the winner will be announced. The winning game will then get a print and video review from Little Metal Dog Show and the designer a yearlong mentorship from Surprised Stare Games.
