Ever wanted to make a board game? Take one you’ve made to the next level? Create an RPG from scratch? Build kit-bashed miniatures? Or just be a better GM? No sweat, we’ve got you covered.
You'll know by now of course, that the epic gaming convention that is Tabletop Gaming Live, will be taking place on the 17th & 18th September 2022, and will host a huge range of exhibitors, gamers, workshops, and opportunities to play. Taking place at the historic Victoria Warehouse in Manchester, we can’t wait to see you there. But for now, we're taking a look at some of the workshops you can find at the event!
GAME DESIGN WITH JAMES WALLIS
Running the Saturday and Sunday morning of the show, veteran games designer James Wallis will take you through Game Design Crash Course for those who have never made a game before, and the Game Design masterclass will help those who have already created prototypes turn their games into something great.
Price: £20 per session
KIT-BASHING BOOTCAMP WITH BILL MAKING STUFF
YouTube miniatures mash-up sensation Bill Making Stuff promises a chill Saturday afternoon of creating weird miniatures. For what’s planned to be a relaxed session where attendees can get one-on-one advice and also learn the skills they need to make truly weird miniatures. Plus, beadbot making for those who fancy a quicker miniature to take away. With thanks to Modiphius for our box of miniatures bits, and Army Painter for their supplies.
