Make Your Own Board Game

Use a printed board game template or start from scratch and make your own original board game. You can make cards, use dice, and be as creative as you want! Don’t forget to write out the rules. Make your own or collaborate with friends to make one together.

You will have an hour to make your game. Then for the last hour you can try out your new game and play each other’s games.
