March Game Night
Even in our off season we are gaming!
Design a Game with CUDO Plays – Saturday, April 15th
Champaign Public Library, Robeson Pavilion Rm A & B @ 3:00pm
Want to design your own board game? CUDO, the Champaign-Urbana Design Organization, will walk you through every step, from coming up with a concept to creating the rules and picking out pieces. At the end of the event, teams will present their games to the group and celebrate their hard work. A selection of game pieces and prototyping materials will be provided. Also, games from past CUDO Plays events will be showcased for inspiration. This is a great chance for a family to make a game together, or a group of friends to share ideas.
CUDO Plays Recommends
This week we’d like to recommend, Lanterns!
In Lanterns: The Harvest Festival, players have a hand of tiles depicting various color arrangements of floating lanterns, as well as an inventory of individual lantern cards of specific colors. When you place a tile, all players (you and your opponents) receive a lantern card corresponding to the color on the side of the tile facing them. Place carefully to earn cards and other bonuses for yourself, while also looking to deny your opponents. Players gain honor by dedicating sets of lantern cards — three pairs, for example, or all seven colors — and the player with the most honor at the end of the game wins.
