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.
THURSDAY 27th JUNE, 18:00-21:00
DUSTON COMMUNITY CENTRE, NORTHAMPTON
The Masterclass is coming to Northampton for the first time, on the evening of 27th June. It’ll be a three-hour lecture and workshop led by James Wallis, at Duston Community Centre, on the outskirts of Northampton itself.
SATURDAY 13TH JULY, 11:00-14:00 and 15:00-18:00
LFGcon, BANKSTOWN SPORTS CLUB, SYDNEY
LFGcon is a three-day tabletop games event, and Steve Dee will be running two back-to-back three-hour sessions of the Masterclass on the Saturday. You should definitely go, if only to see how frazzled he is by the end of the last one.
SUNDAY 14TH JULY, 12:00-15:00
DRAUGHTS WATERLOO, LEAKE ST, LONDON
This is our fifth Masterclass at Draughts and our second in their spacious Waterloo premises, and they’re always huge fun. Kids are welcome at this afternoon workshop, a short walk from Waterloo station and the Thames. James Wallis will be running this session again.
SATURDAY 3RD AUGUST & SUNDAY 4TH AUGUST
GAMMACON, EXHIBITION PARK, CANBERRA
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 (adults)
THURS 29TH AUGUST, 14:00-16:00 (families)
THE LUDOQUIST, CROYDON
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 stations.
SATURDAY 28 SEPTEMBER, 13:00-16:00 (general)
SUNDAY 29 SEPTEMBER, 10:00-12:00 (families)
TABLETOP GAMING LIVE, ALEXANDRA PALACE, LONDON
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 main event, 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.
