What is CUDO Plays?

CUDO Plays is an Illinois-local board game design competition hosted by the Champaign-Urbana Design Organization. We bring together gamers, makers, and designers to bring their game ideas to reality!

For six years now, we’ve guided teams over the course of seven months to bring their board games from inception to production. We have followed each team’s progress, assisting and supporting them as needed. The teams have attended workshops led by industry experts, used community resources, and over five seasons of competition have created 71 games!

We believe in helping people build functional, beautiful, and, most importantly, fun games! We want to introduce new people into the board gaming world and establish a community that inspires people to create through games.
