Cartamundi has revealed a new product that aims to put the power of game design into the hands of young creators in the form of The White Box.

Pitched as a game design workshop in a box, The White Box is a tool made for budding game designers to create, plan and prototype their own tabletop game.

The box contains generic components such as wooden cubes, plastic discs, six-sided dices, punchboard sheets and more. Also, it includes The White Box Essays, a 128-page book about how to make games, how to use randomness, what to ask play testers and so on. 

The box was created by a team of veteran game creators including Jeremy Holcomb (The Duke, Timestreams) and Jeff Tidball (Doctor Who Time Clash, Horus Heresy).

“We’re proud to play a part in giving game designers and enthusiasts as well as young crafters the chance to create their own game," explains Cartamundi VP Steve Schoenmaekers, "We want to be a great manufacturing partner for the creation of card and board games.”
