Board Game Redesign Competition 2016

Win a year's mentorship by Surprised Stare Games

The competition will be launched at 9am on Saturday 30th May in the Arden seminar Room - Find out more then!!

UK Games Expo and associates, Leisure Games and Surprised Stare Games are pleased to announce the UKGE Board Game Redesign Competition 2016.

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? The 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 to the designers. The shortlisted games will then be handed over to the final judging panel and will get a demonstration spot at UK Games Expo 2016 where the winner will be announced. The winning designer wins a year long mentorship from Surprised Stare Games.

You can buy the sets of components from the Launch seminar in the Arden Room of the HIlton at 9am on Saturday 30th May or afterwards (if any are left) from the Lesiure Games Stand on Saturday and Sunday at UKGE. Sets cost £10.
