Make Your Own Board Game

Board Games to Create and Play is a doodle book containing everything you need to make your own board game. Try it out for yourself with the free Moonbase Escape download – an unfinished adventure board game waiting to be customised.

Kevan Davis and Viviane Schwarz are game developers and authors of Board Games to Create and Play, an all-in-one creative board game kit. In the book, they teach you the basics of game theory and the concept of snaddering – to create a board game by collaboratively creating squares, rules and doodles (mash-up of Snakes and Ladders). Imagine a game about absolutely anything you want. Whether you want to solve a murder mystery, race through the city against the clock or sail the seven seas as a pirate, there’s no limit to what you can play.

Moonbase Escape is a free bonus board for you to try out snaddering and make your own board game. Download and print the board and instructions below and let your imagination run free. The first player to reach the escape pod wins, but it’s up to you to add squares to help or hinder players on their way.

You’ll find more bonus boards to customise on the snaddering website. And check out Board Games to Create and Play for even more boards, rules and ideas for creating your own stay-at-home classic. Don’t forget to share a pic of your game using the hashtag #snaddering.
