The Thinking Seed

The Thinking Seed is a board game tournament which is proposed as a solution to revive Mancala. A two player board game, Mancala originates from Africa. A visual system for the tournament is developed which includes naming the tournament, developing an identity, creating brochures, invites, posters and score cards. The design solution aims to educate and inform about the history of the game and attempts to engage an audience with the result being, them playing the game. This event also aims to peek interest of an audience in a board game culture.

The event space can include an interactive wall that provides space for a crossword. This wall could represent and indicate the success of the event by visually demonstrating how engaged an audience was.
