Boston Game Jams is hosting Cardboard Jam on April 9th and 10th — it’s a great chance for people to make non-digital games in a weekend. Registration here, details follow:

Where:
Singapore/MIT GAMBIT Game Lab
MIT Building NE25-388
5 Cambridge Center, 3rd Floor
Cambridge, MA 02142
Google Map

Cost:
Free!

Why:
Because Boston still needs more independent game development and open, creative collaboration and innovation. And because making non-digital games allows anyone with a desire to design games collaboratively to give this while “game jam” thing a try.

What to bring:
Paper, cardboard, playing card decks, dice, etc. Anything that will help you design and implement your game! Notebooks are encouraged, though we’ll have lots of whiteboard space for collaborate design.

Hosted By:
Darren Torpey (darren AT boston game jams DOT com)

At this jam we’ll focus more than ever on using constraints to inspire creativity in the design process and on cross-team collaboration. In particular, we will be playtesting each others’ games a lot at this jam.
