Haven’t Got a Clue

A game jam & event by curator Lisa Smedman. July 3rd, 2021.

Live Event: July 17th, 2021,
6-9:30 P.M.

Curated by Lisa Smedman

Featuring art by: The Papercut Arcade Collective, and You! Our Open Call welcomes submissions from all disciplines and skill levels – contact us at submissions@thepapercutarcade.ca.

The board game Clue was first published in 1949 (as Cluedo) and is one of the best known “deduction” games of all time. Clue has been turned into a video game, a movie, a TV series, even a musical! Now it’s your turn to draw inspiration from this classic board game.

During the month of June, game designers and artists will be “jamming” to create games and works of art that take Clue as their inspiration. The resulting works will be showcased at an online Salon on Saturday, July 17, 2021.

Game submissions can be digital (video games) or tabletop (card and board games). We encourage designers of the latter to upload their games to Tabletop Simulator (available on Steam), so that salon attendees can play them in a virtual space. An online workshop on how to use Tabletop Simulator and how to upload games will be held during the month of June.

Art submissions can take whatever form you like – visual art, performance art, poetry or prose, music – all disciplines are welcome.

A big part of the Clue board game is that its characters are each inspired by a different color. As part of the jamming process, we invite you to choose a color to inspire and influence your work. This additional criteria is optional – but if a particular color moves you, then run with it!
