Enter The Young Games Inventor of the Year!

Enter The Young Games Inventor of the Year!

Under 16 and bursting with ideas? Love playing board games? You could be just who we're looking for!

The Young Games Inventor of the Year is a nationwide competition to find the best new game idea invented by a school-aged child.  If your child has a game idea, no matter how simple or clever, we want to hear about it!

What will the winner get?

As well as winning their height in BrainBox games (that's a lot of games, by the way), we will even bring the winning game idea to life and present the winner with a mocked-up at the annual Toy Fair in London!

How can my child enter?

It couldn't be simpler. You can either:

1) Get your child creating and then enter their idea using the form below (be sure to upload a nice sketch/drawing); or

2) Download our paper application form, get your child to complete it, and then send it back to us 

How is the winner chosen?

We will draw up a shortlist of eligible entries and then, a bit like Strictly Come Dancing, the final winner is chosen from a combination of judges votes and the public vote (your friends and family can really help with the public vote!).

What is the deadline?

All entries must be submitted by midnight on October 31st 2017. But don't leave it too late to get inventing - the best game ideas take a bit of time you know...
