“Chancho va, Reloaded” is a Type Game where participants will draw alphabets together, aiming to create proto-fonts. Each participant will start drawing in one font file and through a “rotation” in Github the next player will continue filling the glyph slots, until the round is complete.

The game will start live on Thursday, and we will play together a few rounds. Friday and Saturday the players will continue playing together via a Discord channel, with the Chancho va team moderation.The game will end vía Discord on Saturday noon.

As bonus track, players will get to work with GitHub and UFO while meeting new type friends and learning how to draw letters from each other. Observation and following the rules are key.

Requirements

A couple of days before the game starts the players must send a .UFO file of their own, containing 3 or 4 glyphs.

  • Computer with font editors
  • An intermediate level in drawing fonts
  • Basic knowledge of Github (pull-commit-push)
  • Availability to play 3 days remotely (vía Discord)
