18th Champaign Public Library @ 10:00am – 2:30pm

19th Champaign Public Library @ 12:00pm – 5:00pm

Critical Review is a chance for teams to chat with the CUDO Plays committee about what still needs to be done with their game before Turn-In in February. It’s an informal discussion where we will help you set goals for the final weeks of the competition. We want to ensure that every team turns in a game they are proud of! If your team hasn’t signed up for a Critical Review time slot, do so here!

CUDO Plays Recommends

This week CUDO Plays recommends Modern Art.

In this classic auction game players try to make money by buying and selling works of modern art. Each sale makes an artist’s work worth more, but be careful not to sell all your best paintings to your opponents. This is a classic game by the master designer Reiner Knizia.
