Game Jam Essentials

Want to meet people, brainstorm, discuss, design, code, drink, sleep, experiment, have fun and make great games? This is exactly the place for you!

Did you know that you can make either video games or board games? Game Jams are excellent challenges for game makers to balance creativity with time management, teamwork and game production skills. Participation requires focus and stamina involving 48 hours of innovation, experimentation, collaboration and fun.

The rewards can be even greater, however. One can expect to build life-long friendships and future career opportunities as well as valuable skill building experience.

When & Where
