What we're about

Hello and a warm welcome to the Singapore International Boardgames Meetup family!

Board games aren't just about games, they are about people. A board game without people is just cardboard, its the people that you will meet at our gatherings that will make your experience special.

This meetup group is an excellent way to meet new friends in Singapore to play games and have fun. Every meetup we will have either organizers, game experts, or regulars get you quickly into a game, so you only need to bring yourselves. We host games for all tastes, skill levels, and people from all walks of life, so there is no reason to not join a board game session near you today!

SIBM is run by the Card Board Crew. For more information, please visit our Facebook page:

Global Game Jam 2019 (Get together to make a board game!)

Republic Polytechnic

• For those interested in game design, this event is highly recommended. Interested SIBM members and their friends can RSVP here and use the comments to form a team. The Game Jam is an ideal space to come together with like-minded folk to design a board game that you can call your own, and maybe even get it published in future! The following information is taken from https://globalgamejam.org/faq: WHAT IS A GAME JAM? The goal is to come together and make a video game, or non-digital game like a board game or card game. Participants rapidly prototype game designs and hopefully inject new ideas to help grow the game industry. We share a common theme and constraints. We ask participants to create a game from beginning to end in a prescribed time (maximum of 48 hours). The brief time span is meant to help encourage creative thinking to result in small but innovative and experimental games. WHAT IS THE GLOBAL GAME JAM® ? The GGJ brings together talented individuals from within your community. It is a unique opportunity for people to push their skills and challenge their way of working. Participants work concurrently with developers around the globe; we rally around a central theme, and then have 48 hours to create a game. It's our hope that we will see some very experimental realized prototypes that you can continue to work on after the jam. Many games developed in previous Game Jams have become fully realized games. The GGJ is open source, hardware & software agnostic and all projects are protected under a Creative Commons license. We encourage people to try out new ideas and push themselves, within reason. We also strongly encourage participants to remember to eat and sleep, to stay at their best! WHEN IS THE GLOBAL GAME JAM® ? The Global Game Jam® is an annual event. The 2018 GGJ will start at 5pm (in your time zone) on January 26 and goes for ~48 hours through January 28, 2018. Website: https://www.facebook.com/groups/GlobalGameJamSG/ Entrance Fee: None Hours: Open for entire 48 hours Food Options: Access to food in close vicinity. Drinks and snacks provided on site. This site has onsite security. Auditorium Space: This site has auditorium space available for post-Jam presentations.
