Heartland Makerfest

We had such a fun time inspiring kids to make board games in our Board Game Blitz: 15 minute board game challenge and sharing what we do with the community!



Board Game Bootcamp

So much happened this past week! We held our annual Bootcamp where community joins us to build a game in an afternoon! We saw some pretty neat ideas come out of the day and hope it inspires everyone to continue to create.

CUDO Plays Recommends

This week the spooky game we are recommending, is Mysterium!

Mysterium is a cooperative, deduction game that challenges two to seven players to solve a murder that occurred thirty years ago. One player takes on the role of a restless ghost, tasked with communicating the true culprit of the murder to the assembled psychics. The other players all play as psychics, receiving visions and interpreting them to the best of their abilities in order to narrow down the list of suspects. Yet time is in no one’s favor tonight—if the players take too long to discover the truth, the bridge between the worlds is closed, and the ghost must wait another year to reach its eternal rest! A cool game for 2-7 players that plays in about 42 minutes to get you in the spooky mood.
