Interested in making a board game from your research?

Dr Sean Elias (Nuffield Department of Clinical Medicine) was awarded PER Seed Funding for the Board Game Café in 2018. Sean is now looking to talk to researchers who might be interested in making a board game out of their research. He is looking for scientists and board game enthusiasts who are keen to develop their own games or adapt existing commercially available games to help showcase their research. Sean held several successful events in 2018 and is hoping to expand the team and number of events in 2019.

Game development workshops will be organised to help bring the games from concept to table and link together researchers from across the University with similar interests and ideas. Events in the past have included Science festivals, appearances at University Museums and our own stand-alone events. This is a great opportunity to improve your public engagement skills using an increasingly popular medium and most importantly have fun whilst you do so.

If you are interested in joining the team please contact for more information. You can also check out the website and their Twitter feed @BoardGamesPER for an overview of the games and previous events.
