      After last year’s Global Game Jam, we are happy to announce that we are organizing a jam site in Leeuwarden again!

      New organization!
      New people!
      New games!
      Same Blokhuispoort!

      This year's Global Game Jam promises to be an exciting event where you get to create and play many awesome games.
      Everyone is welcome to participate in the game jam.

      On Site Jammers:
      To participate on site we ask for an entrance fee of €10,- (Euro).

      Online Jammers (Free):
      Join the discord to stay up to speed: https://discord.gg/PPbBqxTzG9 .
      All main events (Opening stream, showcases and closing) during the jam will be shared via the discord.
      Online jammers are also welcome to join the on-site showcase on Sunday 28th (no entrance fee).

      All Jammers:
      Make sure to join the discord to stay up to speed ( https://discord.gg/PPbBqxTzG9 ).
      The organizers in the discord should be able to answer any questions that you may have.

      Location:
      The jam site location is inside the Blokhuispoort, the Wasknijper (Blokhuisplein 40, 8911 LJ Leeuwarden)
      You can get to the Wasknijper bij walking through the Blokhuispoort’s main gate (visible in jam site picture). The moment you are through the gate and are in an open area, turn right. The first door you encounter should be the correct entrance to the Blokhuispoort, but you wouldn’t be in the Wasknijper yet.
      When inside, the second door to the left is the Wasknijper.
      The first door to your right is a small mess hall we will use. There, you can find coffee, tea, water and the various foods we offer.
      The first door to the left should take you into a hallway that leads to some toilets and the secondary entrance of the Wasknijper. (Toilets to the left and the Wasknijper to the right)
      If you were not able to find the site, do not hesitate to contact one of the organizers.
