Happy New Year! Returning from the holidays brings us a lot of upcoming events as we near the end of this season of CUDO Plays:


Deadlines Fast Approaching!

The end Season 3 of CUDO Plays is coming up and a lot of important events will be here sooner than you know it.

Critical Review-01Critical Review will be on Saturday, January, 23rd. This is a session for you to bring your near–complete board games to our team for critique. Members of the committee will be available to give you insight into how to make your board game the best it can be.


Winter War-01Winter War is Friday, January, 29th to Sunday January 31st. This is Champaign-Urbana’s annual adventure gaming convention. A chance to show and play your polished game at a convention! It will be great practice in explaining and pitching your game to the players.


Handed In_small-01Hand-in will be Saturday, February 20th through Monday February 22nd. The final submission—exactly what it sounds like! Turn in your polished game prototype with a complete and coherent rulebook. No work will be allowed on games after this point, and games will be judged based on the judging criteria.
