Spend three high-energy hours learning the theory and practice of creating tabletop games, guided by veteran game designer and former Guinness World Record holder James Wallis. Starting with a walk-through that explains how games work, why we play them and how and engineer them, James will show you how to create a concept, build it into a prototype, and take it through multiple rounds of testing, evaluation and improvements. By the end you'll understand the process of making games from scratch, and you’ll have a complete working game design you can take home with you. Suitable for beginners and experienced designers alike.

James Wallis is the mind behind the classic games Once Upon a Time and The Extraordinary Adventures of Baron Munchausen. He lectures in game design at London South Bank University, writes a column for Tabletop Gaming magazine, and co-authored the book Board Games In 100 Moves with Ian Livingstone.
