Cally Trench's board games

In I've brought you back a baby dragon (2013), an original board game by Cally Trench, holiday makers are desperate to go back home, but cannot do so until they have acquired an ice cream, a postcard and a souvenir baby dragon. Players have to make swaps at times, and can choose to thwart the other players in their attempt to return home with their goods, or can choose to co-operate and assist each other. Most players start with the aim of winning, but the frustration inherent in the game often alters players' behaviour so that they decide to collaborate in the end.

I've brought you back a baby dragon by Cally Trench

I've brought you back a baby dragon was made specially for Be Our Guest at Oriel Davies, Newtown, Powys in summer 2013, an exhibition that reflected the experiences, attributes and desires of an (imaginary) B&B, and this is where it was first played.
