Two Upcoming Sandpits!

06 June 2011 | 2 comments

It’s been a while since the last Sandpit, our irregular playing and playtesting event for trying out new game ideas. But we’ve now got not one but two Sandpits just around the corner – and this time they might, for the first time ever, even involve some actual sand, because they’re both themed around the sea.

The first will be on the afternoon of Sunday 17 July, at the National Maritime Museum, with games inspired by voyages and the sea; and the second in Royal Festival Hall at the Southbank Centre, on Thursday 4 August, as part of a collection of seaside-themed Festival of Britain celebrations. Both events will be free.

If you’ve ever thought you might want to try your hand at running a game at a Sandpit, now’s the time to get in touch. Email holly@hideandseek.net for a copy of the call for game ideas, and to get more detail about how it all works. And if you’d rather just play, stay tuned for more details about the games, coming up over the next few weeks!

    Sounds like brilliant fun with great ideas. As a university student studying Creative Writing things like this real interest me, with the thought process and ideas that come from making up games as well as just having fun.
    Is this aimed at specific ages, or is everyone allowed to go?

    It’s mostly aimed at adults – we occasionally get 16-17-year-olds and they do tend to have fun, but there’s not so much for kids. At the NMM event there will be events for children being run by the museum in the same location, though.
