Always wanted to try your hand at making a game? Well now's your chance! We will be hosting a game jam on the 21st-22nd October at NUI Galway! Not a student? No problem! This event is open to anyone, from inexperienced first-timers to veterans! Come along to make a video or board game and unleash your creativity!

Attendees can form teams or work individually. The organisers will assist in the creation of team, and pre-made teams are allowed.

This is normally not even required as we tend to have an excellent time. However, in the interest of keeping the event fun and safe we have some rules. It typically boils down to "Be excellent to each other".
At least one organiser will be on the premises at any one time, though we typically have 2 or 3.

* You agree to follow the decision of the organiser in any dispute over conduct or involving the organiser.
* Organisers reserve the right to refuse addmission.
* Should an organiser find an attendee's behaviour to be inappropriate for the safe enjoyment of the gamejam the organiser will take appropriate action.
