Design a Game Event

We had a great time with all the kids at the Champaign Public Library! It is never too early to learn about board game design!


CUDO Plays Academy + Illinois MakerLab

CUDO Plays is partnering with the Illinois MakerLab for a week-long camp, taking participants through the entire process of board game design from brainstorming ideas to creating components. Each session will cover a different aspect from game design, from quick prototyping to envisioning components, with demonstrations on how to model game pieces with 3d modeling software (Fusion 360).

This camp will be for 13-17 year olds and you can find out more info or sign up here!

CUDO Plays Recommends

This week we’d like to recommend, Burke’s Gambit!

In Burke’s Gambit, players take on specific roles of Captain, Marine, Comms Officer and more as they take turns and roll a die. The possibilities of the die include damaging another player, healing themselves, looking at a crew affiliation card, or even scanning a player’s diagnostic card. But if you roll an engine power up, you hasten the ship’s arrival to Earth. When Burke’s Gambit reaches Earth, a vote must be held to eject someone from the airlock (assuming anyone’s left)!
