Race to the Vatican – board game

In 2017 we designed and made a board game for Dag van de Wetenschap, an annual initiative in Belgium where scientists and researchers share their findings with everyone, including children.

‘Race to the Vatican’ (2-10 players) shows that the road to canonisation is a marathon, not a sprint. What does it take to become a saint within the Catholic Church? Sacrifice, perseverance, and some luck with the dice.

The ‘Race to the Vatican’ board was designed and made by illustrator Meredith Mackworth-Praed

Debuted on Sunday 26 November 2017 at the Museum Vleeshuis in Antwerp, ‘Race to the Vatican’ has returned to Dag van de Wetenschap every year since.

On 18 May 2018 we presented ‘Race to the Vatican’ to an audience of academics at PRESS>SPEAK>INSPIRE, organised by Wetenschap aan de Stroom
