We spent Saturday afternoon making an extensive map of Loafland, with landmarks such as Tape City (a very sticky sort of a place), the Zombie castle, Wild Horse Island, a railway for the exclusive use of the travelling forest, as well as any number of here-be-monsters, unicorns, alligators, cauliflowers, and so on..
A long time ago in the far off distance, we went to a few comics fairs.. and played some loafish games. At the time we solemnly promised they would be on the blog the very instant we got home but.. the way back was all over quagmires, ancient curses, ravines, wolves, cornershops, you name it. But here we finally are, and here they finally be.. phew.
comics jams from Comika... the first one made it all the way round the hall I think!
This one got made at our stall:
and this one too:
Then there were some comics jams at the Oxford Childrens Comics Festival:
another monstrous number:
oh, and... hmm more monsters..
We also played some matchbox pictionary - the idea with this game is that someone writes a little something, and the next person draws a picture to illustrate it. Then they put that picture into the matchbox, covering the writing. The next person looks at the picture and writes what it might be illustrating, then adds that to the box.. and so on.
this next one follows on suspiciously well..
and one more
There's some mutterings of an exhibition of these games, one day one day. Send us yours!! By e-mail loaf.magazine[at]gmail.com or write to Loaf Magazine at 18 Dongola Road, London, N17 6EE.
