PapJam Scratch 2019

What is PapJam Scratch?

PapJam Scratch is a board game jam taking place in Copenhagen this spring!

What is a game jam you might ask!

Well, a game jam is a bunch of people getting together and creating games. And with board games (unlike video games), that means you don't need to know anything other than how to play a board game.

The event is for everyone, from veteran board game designers to all those who love board games and have always wanted to try making one of their own.

Do I need a team?

No, it’s totally fine if you don’t have a team. On Friday we’ll help people out in finding a team, and everyone ends up in a team. It’s of course also fine to work alone or to come to the jam with a pre-existing team.


The jam will take place the weekend of March 15th - 17th 2019.

What is touchdown

PapJam Touchdown is a board gaming event where you can come and play games from established and up and coming designers. As this is a PapJam event we are of course talking about unpublished games in prototype stages.
It is about having a good time playing some good games, some bad games, while having a great time. It's about grabbing a beer and chilling out after work.

After we successfully held our first PapJam event last year (what we now call PapJam Scratch) we wanted to make it easier to continue working with the prototypes created at the event.
This is how the idea for PapJam Touchdown came up. As a way to give people an opportunity to meet up at Kulturhus Indre By, the same location as the main Jam event, and continue their work or to show of some new work.

Who is PapJam Touchdown for?

It is really for everyone who like playing board games.
MAYBE you have dabbled with designing your own board and want to have it tested, then it is definitely for you!

It is a small event where anyone can bring their prototypes at any stage, from a quick draft to a nearly finished game and have it played and tested.


The event is free, but please:
