Make your own game! #ccmakethegame
Lets build and construct. For the basic kit you need nothing more than beeswax and some sticks. This is just a thought. You can create your own toolkit in many many different ways. Your imagination is the limit. If you want to have an easy start.
Mission 1: Beeswax
Start with getting some beeswax. The beeswax is the essence of play. Everything shapes around it. You don’t need a big amount. Beeswax can be very different. That’s why it is hard for us to provide with one-solution-fits-all formula. We played a lot with different formulas.
Make, test and adapt.
Usually ordinary beeswax is too hard to bring it into play. So here are some tips and tricks on how to experiment with the beeswax to get an enjoyable experience. Scroll through the slider and get some inspiration.
Test the wax
Can you already make a structure like this, that feels strong? Then you are on a good path. If it is too soft, add more beeswax. If it is too hard, add more vaseline or oil. Heat it up and mix it together.
Melt it together
Just use any cooking pot and a plastic bag, like the zipper bags. Put your beeswax pieces inside and add some oil or vaseline. Heat it up until it melts, take it out and let it cool down.
Extra: Mold it.
A really nice tool is a silicon mat, that gives you the option to pour your beeswax inside. That saves you the process of creating beeswax knees by yourself and automates the process.
Mission 2: Sticks
The sticks are the first add on for the game. You can take for example barbecue sticks made from bamboo, that you should find in many places. With a sharper scissor (like the ones you use for a garden, you can cut them to sizes.
To create a standard set, make sticks in different sizes, to have a wide option of play.

Alternatively for a first fun and small starter set, you can also simply use match sticks. Now you are ready to play and explore a new world.
