Beach challenge 3

Firstly, an apology. I know you're not expecting this challenge until tomorrow but tomorrow is a busy day for me so I'm sorry I've had to issue it early. I'm hoping none of you will mind.

So, this week's challenge...

As I'm sure most of you know by now, NTW05 The Beach combines both theatre and gaming. With the challenges so far Bethan has challenged you to create story, Carl too looked at the creative writing side of things. Me, I'm going for pure… Continue

Playtest pics

Thought I'd share some of the pics from the last playtest we did in Prestatyn. It was as fun/crazy/mad as it looks and if you want to be a part of it get in touch with us so we can let you know when and where the next playtests are happening. We'd love you to come and play!

It was amazing, The Beatles returned to Prestatyn in the middle of our playtest just as I had my camera out. Who'd have believed it?…

hello sunshine!

Apparently the sun is going to shine until Tuesday which is just perfect for us. We're off to Prestatyn again tomorrow until Tuesday to do more playtesting. 3 days, playing games on the beach in the sunshine, hmm, am I really working?

Well yes, actually, pretty hard but I'm pleased to say things are really coming together now and seeing people playing our games and seeing how well they work (or don't work) is a really exciting stage to be at. The people we've met in Prestatyn…

'story' so far...

As Bethan has said, we're now back on our home turf and are able to focus on story. It has been fun playtesting our game ideas (it's amazing to watch how easily adults find their inner child when a water pistol is placed in their hand! see below)

but our second trip to the beaches of North Wales has inspired new ideas and our games are definitely set to change for the better.

We're now at the stage where we can develop…

I am sitting in a white room. There's no padding on the wall (though maybe there should be!) just lots and lots of post it notes! Brainstorming for The Beach has begun.

And so far so good.

Ideas have been flowing, marker pens have been marking, post it's have been stuck and re-stuck and we now have 4 solid themes ready to be honed and discarded and looked at… Continue

Life's a Beach...

Hello all,

Well we started our research for July's beach game with a 2 day recce of North Wales' best beach offerings. December and beaches aren't a natural combination for me but I have to say the shorelines were stunning - if a tad cold! We visited 11 in all but are still undecided about which we'll use - stunning and secluded or on the edge of town? You'll have to wait and see...A very inspirational trip though. This exciting project is underway!
