April 1st is a time of mirth and merriment! And lots of us enjoy messing about with board games in our spare time. So...

We're having a moment of madness for April Fool's Day, and inviting you to join us in a merry moment of invention.

A two hour games hack on a Satruday afternoon, to invent games from scratch in teams or working solo. You could win a thoroughly foolish prize for best (or worst) game!

Asgard Games, our venue for the afternoon
Asgard Games, our venue for the afternoon

The proposed order of the afternoon is:

  • 16:00 Arrive at Asgard Games, Walsall
  • 16:30 Work begins on projects.
  • 18:30 The time bell rings and teams present their efforts.
  • 19:00 Event finishes and prizes are awarded.

Shortly afterwards, there is a high probability we'll head off to the Black Country Arms for a well earned pint and some heavy play testing!

Risks and challenges

There are no significant risks here. We either make the numbers to run the event or we don't, and we'll have enough in the reward price to cover venue costs and raw materials for however many turn up. If the shop needs to close at short notice, alternative venues will be sought. There are enough options we're confident the event will still go ahead. By backing us, you are guaranteeing to make your own way to the shop on April 1st for 16:00 to join us. Obviously don't back us if you're unable to travel. If you have specific mobility needs we can make reasonable adaptations, although not all of the venue is fully accesible. Please let us know well in advance if you have such needs so we have notice to make the necessary arrangements.
