Jam Site Description: 

The Global Game Jam is the world’s largest game jam event that takes place globally over the span of a weekend. A game jam can be thought of as a hackathon, but for the creation of small games! You can work in teams or on your own to create any game your heart desires, whether it be an analog tabletop game or a digital videogame, BUT your creation must be based on the SECRET theme that will be announced just before the jam begins. So join us for a weekend of fun, creativity, and games at UC Davis as we take on #UCDGGJ18 together!

4:00PM on Friday, January 26th to 2:00PM on Sunday, January 28th (but you don’t have to stay the entire time! See schedule for event details!)

UC Davis Art Annex, Room 107; Hutchison Dr., Davis, CA 95616 (but there will be other available work spaces on campus as well!)
