Fall 2011 Cardboard Jam.
by on September 29th, 2011 The Fall 2011 Cardboard Jam was Boston Game Jams event that took place on October 8th and 9th, 2011 at the Singapore-MIT GAMBIT Game Lab.
We had eighteen jammers, who broke out into five teams, all of whom designed and implemented a fully-playable game.
Our theme was “OCCUPY”.
The teams and their games.
Angry Tavern Keepers.
What are adventurers.
They are sociopathic hoboes that make their living through murder and theft.
They don’t make the best company, yet at the same time they are crucial to any tavern keeper’s purse.
Occupy their time with quests to get them out of your hair and have a good night’s sleep.
Angry Tavern Keepers (rules, etc.).
Get the Scoop!.
Journalists compete to get the best news coverage of a protest.
In this game of global warming and arctic survival, several tribes struggle to survive on a melting iceberg.
Mitchell N Charity.
Calvin Crane Nelson III.
Occupy Boston (Game Jams).
Build your protest group’s population from 100 to 1000 without being wiped out by hunger, indifference, or government pressure.
A dexterity/drafting/category dice game, with a commerce theme.
Rules, diagrams, and cutouts (zipped).
