Board Wars 2018

Board Wars 2018

Friday, July 27 - Sunday, July 29

Hayes Auditorium, Boise Public Library

Are you a lover of board games? Do you plot game improvements as you play, or do you already have a great idea for your own game? Then this event is for you! We invite you to assemble your closest companions, and dive into a weekend-long adventure starting Friday, July 27.

You'll test your mettle, stamina, and camaraderie as you develop and prototype a playable board game in just 48 short hours. You and your team will receive a kit from Citizen Scientific Workshop with all the tools you need to create your board game. 

We'll start on Friday night with rules, guidelines, and kits. From there, you'll have plenty of time to design, iterate, and playtest before the judges review games Sunday afternoon. Below, you'll find the link to sign up. Full weekend schedule coming soon.

Sign up for Board Wars!
