Welcome! Welcome! I am the Mayor of Box Society and today I invite you to join us in celebrating all that is Square and Equal!
Box Society is a game about our society — the pressure to fit in and the hurdles we face navigating our daily lives with different means and abilities. Players guide their Boxes through 9 ridiculous and arbitrary challenges to bring them into the ‘Larger Society of Boxes'. But that will only happen if all the paperwork is complete and the bureaucrats' exacting standards are met.
The game emerged from a collaboration with and funding from Full Circle Arts, a disabled-led organisation which works to involve those who are excluded from the arts. It was co-designed with Greg Foster.
