Design Brief

There's something about the way you experience a board game, the physical touch and feel is such a critical component of the game that you can't experience online. But even with the traditional form of play, board games are evolving, in fact, the future of puzzles is more inclusive and diverse than ever before.

MyMiniFactory is thrilled to announce our partnership with one of the largest, most loved European toy company, Ravensburger! The century-year-old company continues to celebrate togetherness through our incredible and exciting collaboration, designed to bring you closer to the brands and games you love in a way that's never been experienced before!

This co-creation competition is unlike any other in MyMiniFactory history. This competition is about bringing the Labyrinth game to life with your vision and perspective and bringing it to the forefront of the brand you've grown up adoring. We're overjoyed to share this opportunity with you! The chance to design new characters and themes to a game shared more than 30 years ago, and have them approved officially by Ravensburger themselves!
