Game Design



For the Pint of Science Festival 2020 Montanarini.Games will be sharing with you the essential steps you need to take if you want to turn your research into a tabletop game!

In this four-part series, we will cover how you might go about starting the development of your tabletop game, right through to playtesting. 

Each video will have a brief introduction from Jake Montanarini outlining the step and some key points to remember. This is followed by a video where we put these steps into practice with Environmental Scientist Laurie Kerr, turning her research into a board game!


If you have any questions about the videos or would like to discuss making your own tabletop game, please get in contact.
