Tom participated in his first board game jam, hosted by LA Board Game Jam, teams of designers compete to make the most fun, original game within a limited time, using a provided set of components, and they are given a random theme. This time 20 participants made up 5 teams designing a game based on a wedding theme. Tom’s team made a game were each player was an usher at separate weddings and had to seat guests of various types to score points. It was a quick filler game, that utilized horseshoe drafting, simultaneous player turns and worker placement, taking about 15 minutes to play. It was a fun little game, that earned them the win.
And then there was the door prizes… Our friends and family got so lucky, we won like 10 of the 12 games.
