Bemis Underground, 12th and Leavenworth St.

9am-9pm, Free

Think you’re a leet game developer who’s looking for an opportunity to create an awesome game that’ll get everybody hooked? Or are you a pro gamer who’s looking to show off your mad skills? Whether your specialty is in board games, card games, or video games, Alex Myers and Jeff Thompson are hosting a 12-hour Game Jam where gamers can do just that. Starting at 9am, artists, designers, game enthusiasts, programmers, hackers, and anyone else attending will be given a secret theme that they’ll use to create their own games from scratch in a time period of ten hours. Then, from 7pm to 9pm, they’ll put their mice and pencils down so the public can play their new creations.  Attendance is free, but registration is required for game-makers.
