  • Board Game Builders

    Learn the basics of board game design and build your very own board game! Our crash course includes a design journal, board game box, board, and all the bits & pieces needed to play it! Over 8 quick weeks, board game builders will learn about crucial parts of board game design such as rules, board types, what all the pieces are and much more. While each week is crucial to the board game building process, if a child misses a week, we have strategies available to help catch them up to the group. Below is a breakdown of our board game building program. While the program teaches young minds how to build a board game, our aim is to inspire the next generation to take a step away from being consumers in order to be a creator, maker and designer. In our program we refer to participants as Builders. Through encouragement and assurance, we believe that builders are capable of great things. Through this belief, we aim to provide an environment that gives builders the room to design without hindrance or fear of failure. If you would like to learn more about our board game building program, please check out our website at www.LittleCreatorsClub.com or check out our leave behind presentation here: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/e/2PACX-1vSSc5qj3RHMtFPpFANfvuK3xzeGH8oYRCCWtzOB0gJBGppasbSsMY0TYs0GkpO99492yzDSz2HJuKJA/pub?start=false&loop=false&delayms=5000
