This list only covers the ticketed events that are open to the public. We also run classes for clubs, charities, businesses, schools and universities. If you’re interested in arranging something with us, we’re happy to discuss it with you. Please do get in touch.
FRIDAY 2ND AUGUST, 19:00-22:00
James returns to the best games shop in Reading as part of the Pop-Up Gen Con event, running a three-hour Masterclass on Friday evening. We’ve organised some cracking sessions there in the past, and this should be another good one.
SATURDAY 3RD AUGUST & SUNDAY 4TH AUGUST
GAMMACON, EXHIBITION PARK
Steve’s back at the helm for two more three-hour Masterclasses, spread across Canberra’s festival of pop-culture. A perfect moment to master your grasp of game-designing.
SUNDAY 4TH AUGUST, 18:00-21:00 (general)
THURS 29TH AUGUST, 14:00-16:00 (families)
THE LUDOQUIST GAMES CAFE
We’re back at the Ludoquist for two more Masterclasses led by James: a Sunday evening for grown-ups, and a shorter mid-afternoon class for families (children must be accompanied by an adult, adults must be accompanied by a child). Games cafe sessions are a big hit: you can eat and drink while you design and playtest, and you can stay afterwards and play more games. Ludoquist is easy to get to from East Croydon and West Croydon train stations.
FRIDAY 20 SEPTEMBER, 18:00-21:00
FAN BOY THREE, 25 HILTON STREET
The Masterclass is coming back to Manchester for a one-night residency at Fan Boy Three in the centre of the city. Three hours of game-designing goodness and laughs.
Ticket link coming soon.
SATURDAY 28 SEPTEMBER, 13:00-16:00 (general)
SUNDAY 29 SEPTEMBER, 10:00-12:00 (families)
TABLETOP GAMING LIVE, ALEXANDRA PALACE
There will be two sessions of the Masterclass at Tabletop Gaming Live this autumn, a longer one open to anyone and a shorter one geared specifically to families with children. You will have to pay to enter the convention, so these tickets are priced lower to balance that. Tabletop Gaming Live is a two-day festival of games and play held at Alexandra Palace in north London and you can read more about it here.
If you’re interested in having a Game Design Masterclass run at your venue, organisation, shop, club or company, then please drop us a line to talk about it.
