Today marked the arrival of the container after three month of delays and difficulties. It also marks the end of this first chapter in boardgaming in Uganda's rural areas and the start of a new chapter, we are calling Gamechangers. Here's the container moving into its temporary resting place. At this point it was empty, as we had removed all the contents near our centre. That little red crane couldn't pick up the full container!
Unfortunately some of the boardgames were crushed underfoot, when the revenue people were inspecting the container, but quite a few survived. We have quite a lot to sort out still but here are some of the ones that did survive (and a few other assorted items):
Finally, if you wanted to be part of Gamechangers, we have about ten days left. Two famous boardgame designers - Tony Boydell (Snowdonia) and Matt Leacock (Pandemic and Forbidden Island) - have offered some unique gifts to pledgers on the Gamechangers. For Tony, you simply have to pledge an amount - each £5 gets you one vote. For Matt, you just need to comment on his recent blog about his history and connection to Uganda and his views on our Gamechangers project. You can join the Gamechangers mailing list here.
Goodbye and thanks for making the Uganda Village Boardgame Convention 2017 such a success!
