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!

Find out how the 2016 winner went about coming up with his winning idea...

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 copy of their game at the annual Toy Fair in London!

How can my child enter?

It couldn't be simpler. You can either:

1) Enter your child's idea using our online application form; or
2) Download our paper application form, get your child to complete it, and then send it back to us by the deadline

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' vote 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 November 5th 2019. But don't leave it too late to get inventing - the best game ideas take a bit of time you know...
