Our by-laws


Subsection 1: BrætspilsBureauet is a voluntary, social, and socially engaged organization working towards increased learning, well-being, and education for all children, young people, and adults through the use of board games.

Subsection 2: We are based on a fundamental idea that board games enhance well-being, academic and social development, as well as understanding and experience with democratic communities. The tactile and spatial experiences, such as eye contact facilitated by board games, are particularly important in a digital age.

Subsection 3: Through the use of board games, we teach the value of diversity and each other's different strengths, aiming for players to become aware and independent individuals willing to take responsibility in society and the world.

Subsection 4: Based on both the visible and invisible dynamics of board games, competencies are developed, including patience, concentration, memory, independence, psychological safety, social capital, planning, creativity, as well as analytical, linguistic, and mathematical abilities. These skills benefit everyone in encounters with the education system and life.

Subsection 5: We emphasize a strong anchoring principle, creating sustainable organizational life, camps, tournaments, and alternative events for and with children, young people, and adults. This occurs within a committed community across age, gender, language, ethnic background, religion, and nationality, strengthening cohesion and integration in society.

Subsection 6: We prioritize good camaraderie and particularly encourage children and young people to take shared responsibility for their own and others' learning. This is achieved through the "young leader, young" principle, where active co-responsibility for teaching and organization is encouraged.

Subsection 7: BrætspilsBureauet is abbreviated as BB. The international name of the association is "The Boardgame Bureau."


To realize the purposes mentioned in § 1, the following measures are employed:

1. Collaboration with schools, educational institutions, ministries, municipalities, school policy organizations, and similar actors on relevant learning and educational projects.

2. Strengthen the understanding and stimulate interest in board games by highlighting their many life-enhancing derived effects.

3. Utilize board games as an international "language" to promote dialogue locally, globally, and, for example, the integration of newcomers in Denmark.

4. Ensure learning and quality in teaching materials, nationwide activities, and all other tournaments.

5. Anchor board games as lasting offerings in the local community through the involvement of children, young people, parents, teachers, and volunteers.

6. Conduct curated game nights for companies, organizations, or associations, where BrætspilsBureauet compiles the "game menu" and provides guidance during the games.

7. Conduct training and educational activities.

8. Strengthen the "young leader young" principle, for example, through courses where older students are trained to assist younger students.

9. Organize and/or participate in board game camps where children, young people, and adults actively participate in indoor and outdoor activities.

10. Develop players' perspectives and cultural understanding through participation in international events in Denmark and abroad.

11. Disseminate impact studies and scientific investigations of board games/role-playing games as a contribution to policy development in the social, learning, and integration areas.
