The University of Oxford Research Board Cafe project are 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. They have held several successful events in 2018 and are hoping to expand the team and number of events in 2019.

They will hold game development workshops 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 our website and our Twitter feed @BoardGamesPER for an overview of our games and previous events.
