Board Game Bootcamp
This was our largest Bootcamp ever and it went off without a hitch even though the CUDO Plays Committee was running with a skeleton crew! Lots of great ideas and collaboration as always. We hope at least a few of the Bootcamp games become completed products by the end of the competition.
CUBED October Meeting: Prototyping
CUBED held a very productive discussion on how to make game prototypes cheaply and iterate quickly. Talk focused on making cards, custom dice, and where to get game bits for next to no cash. There was also a demo of Tabletop Simulator which highlighted, among other things, the very important “table flip” and “undo table flip” buttons.

CUDO Plays Recommends
This week CUDO Plays recommends, KLASK.
This game is basically mini air hockey, and that might be all you need to know. Players bump a tiny ball around using their posts, which they control from under the board using handles with magnets, in an attempt to get the ball into their opponent’s goal. It’s fast, frantic fun. A great game for basically anyone.
