Microboard Game Making

Microboard Game Making

October 2021, Developed by Daniel Flood


We acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and their continuing connection to land and as custodians of stories for millennia. We respectfully acknowledge the land on which we all meet today, and pay our respects to elders past, present and emerging.


Boardgames have come back around as the new hotness in the community, with huge kickstarters and an avalanche of new people coming to the hobby. The only thing better than playing a game - for a certain kind of person - is to create their own game from scratch. Which is what this workshop program is all about; designing and fabricating prototype micro-boardgames in collaboration with local professional game designers and the Applied Creativity team in Brisbane only free-to-use maker-space.

Marketing Copy

Newwave Boardgames are the new crochet and this is your opportunity to get in and get involved creating some to share with the world.

Over five weeks engage with professional Brisbane game designers and the State Library's master makers in a program of play, development and iterative design. All final designs will be published on the State Library wiki, shared with libraries across Australia and the world to enjoy. Who know's where your awesome ideas might lead you…

Everything you need to make your game will be provided, access to the State Library's world famous Fabrication Lab sorted and induction on some of the awesome equipment there. All we need is you!
