Upcoming Events


Playability Workshop – Saturday, December 8th

Champaign Public Library Room 215 @ 1:00pm – 3:00pm

Your game is going well, but can people understand it if you aren’t around to explain it? You’d better hope so since the judges will be playing your game without you in the room. Every year some games are played incorrectly by the judges, and we don’t want that to happen to you! Come to the Playability Workshop for tips and advice about how to write clear, concise rules for your game. This is our last informational workshop before Turn-In in February, don’t miss it! Facebook event

CUDO Plays Recommends

This week CUDO Plays recommends Railroad Ink.

In this game, your goal is to connect as many exits on your board as possible. Each round, a set of dice are rolled in the middle of the table, determining which kind of road and railway routes are available to all players. You have to draw these routes on your erasable boards to create transport lines and connect your exits, trying to optimize the available symbols better than your opponents. The more exits you connect, the more points you score at the end of the game, but you lose points for each incomplete route, so plan carefully! Will you press your luck and try to stretch your transportation network to the next exit, or will you play it safe and start a new, simpler to manage route? A fun “roll-and-write” game for the whole family. Also, there are two different versions, and both are great!
