10-10-11: Beyond Clue and Scrabble
What’s the last board game you played? Was your playing piece a top hat, or maybe a thimble? Or did the game involve framing Mrs. White in the kitchen with the knife? Maybe there was some sort of pop-o-matic bubble. Whatever the game was, here in the U. S., the selection of board games available to a big audience tends to be on the smaller side.
A group in Baltimore wants to change that. The Baltimore Tabletop Game Designers meets regularly to test out their new board game creations – or to improve upon the classics. Two members of the group, Stephen Thomas and Brent Kim, join Sheilah to talk about what they’re working on — and how they hope to get it picked up.
They’ll be hosting a series of workshops on board game design through the Baltimore Free School — the first one is this Thursday, October 13. The group also hosts a regular monthly meetup at the Windup Space in Baltimore.
