Brainbox Games have set children a challenge this Summer, with the launch of their Young Games Inventor of the Year 2014 competition. They want children to invent their very own board game and the winner will receive their height in games and the chance to see their game idea brought to reality by the Brainbox Games team.

If you have a young inventor or board game fan at home you can point them in the direction of the 'How to Enter' page on the Brainbox Games website. You can also download their free 'Ultimate Guide to Creating a Board Game' for extra tips.

Designing a board game could be a really fun project for your children over the Summer holidays. My two are too young for this at the moment but, if they are anything like me, I'm sure this might be the kind of project that interests them when they are older. I think that if Bud was to design a game it would definitely involve animals or dinosaurs. 

Designing a game offers a great way for children to get creative and imaginative and decide exactly what they would like to see from a game. Children will need to think about all the details of the game - number of players, how the game is played, what's inside the box - and draw a picture of their games for their parent to upload.

The website entry form features the full terms and conditions and entries should be received by 21st September so there's still time to get your entry in after the Summer holiday. Two prizes will be awarded - the Judges Choice and the People's Choice which will be open to the public vote.

Can you think of an idea for a game? Will your children be entering the competition?
