Every GSL team is giving their all to create their projects. For Simply Cleaners (our team name), planning and discussing was the first step we took in kick-starting our board game.
Our first step – to create a fundraising campaign in order to buy materials to build our board game. For our fundraiser, we decided to create a dodgeball tournament, but in order to have a successful; fundraiser, we need to publicize it.
That is where our Instagram comes in. Our Instagram has posts of how much progress we’ve made and it shouts out our fundraiser. We have also created posters around our school to create hype about our tournament. To draw even more people in we put the price of the teams at $5 a person, had snacks at the tournament, and the winner got a pizza party. Overall we made around $600 from the tournament, which is more than we need to make a board game. So we decided that we were to create multiple high-quality board games.
We are also creating a newspaper article that is in collaboration with our school’s magazine, The Westside Warriors. It is vital that we create our newspaper with quality and haste, because if we are not the first to submit our newspaper then ours might not be collaborated with.
The main item we are working on right now is the creation of our actual board game. We have spread our $600 budget on 10+ high-quality board games. We are still working on game pieces, board game colors, and card designs.
Simply Cleaners has exciting ideas in mind. Our game consists of a board game, cards, game pieces, and a medieval adventure into recycling. So far we have 3-D printed the game pieces like the characters and the obstacles around the board game.
