Calling all gamers, aged 12-18!

Do you want to help devise and develop a brand new game?

Craigmillar Library, in collaboration with Scottish Book Trust Reading Champion Claire Askew, are launching an ambitious new project.  They’re looking for game enthusiasts aged 12-18 to help them build a new story-based game, which they’ll launch during Book Week Scotland in November.

Game Club at Craigmillar Library

They don’t know yet what the game will look like because they’re leaving that up to YOU. If you come along to their weekly Game Club*, you’ll get to tell them what you think the game’s story should be, what rules and mechanics it should use, and how and where it should be played.

The game YOU make will be distributed for free to audiences across the country as part of Book Week Scotland.

It doesn’t matter if you like to play card games, board games, computer games, RPGs, dexterity games, party games…
It doesn’t matter if you have no experience in game design.
It doesn’t matter if you’re a hardcore gamer or you’ve just dabbled… or if you’re not a gamer at all, but you’ve always fancied having a go.

Anyone aged 12-18 is welcome.

The Game Club* will meet every Monday evening, from 5.30pm until 7pm, at Craigmillar Library on Niddrie Mains Road. The first meeting will be on Monday 6th June 2016.

In the meantime, if you’d like more information about Game Club*, you can email, or pop into Craigmillar Library.
