Whether you’re passionate about crafting physical board games or diving into computer game development, this event is your chance to unleash your creativity and build your very own game from scratch! Supplies will be provided for creating physical board games.

Participants are encouraged to bring their own laptops if they wish to work on computer game development during the event. However, recognizing that technology might be a barrier for some, we have a limited number of laptops available on-site for those in need. These will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis.
