Build a Game at Board Game Jam 2017

Board Game Jam 2017 is happening March 25-26.

For the seventh year in a row we’re running the fun weekend-long event where you get to build a board game! It’s simple: you bring the passion and we bring the supplies.

Starting on the Saturday morning you build a game to have it completed by Sunday evening when we play them. It’s a great chance to bash out game ideas and prototypes – heck, you can even complete a game!

Get your tickets now because the early bird ones are almost all gone! We only have room for 60 attendees, although the Sunday night event is open to the public.

Saturday: Start making a board game! If you need help, join us for a crash course introduction to game design.

Sunday: Finish making a board game! In the evening, join us for a big ol’ board game party where we’ll play the completed games.

Board Game Jam 2016 is happening April 2 & 3!

At Board Game Jam you can:

  • Learn about how to design an awesome game, from some pros.
  • Try out some crazy game idea you’ve been been exploring.
  • Meet other people who love games.
  • And most importantly, make a game!

If you’re new to games or if you’ve already made a million then this jam is for you! We invite people of all skill levels to join in on the fun.

Changes in 2016!
Most importantly, we’re now at Ryerson University. New location, same great taste. We’ll have more details soon on the exact spot.

And that is, actually, the only change for now.

Who’s on the what now?!
Board Game Jam is a 2-day event starting on Saturday morning, and concluding on Sunday evening. On Saturday and Sunday, you make your game; on Sunday evening, we’ll have a big ol’ board game party (boozey venue TBA) and play the games everybody has made! Plus prizes.

Don’t know how to make a board game? Good! Board Game Jam is for the adventurous, not for the already-knowing-everything-ous.

Like last year, you can sign up as an individual, or get some friends and show up as a team – it’s entirely up to you!
