WashingCon is excited to announce that Miranda Evarts, the designer of Gamewright’s Sleeping Queens, will attend WashingCon 2017! Miranda designed the game with her family in 2003 after she came up with the idea for a game where a range of kings help sleeping queens such as the Pancake and Rose Queens wake up. After testing the game with her family and friends, Gamewright published the game in 2005 as its first kid-designed game. In addition to receiving one of the "2006 Best Bet Awards" from the Canadian Toy Testing Council as well as other awards and accolades, Miranda’s game has been profiled in The Washington Post, The Huffington Post, and the World Intellectual Property Organization. Miranda will have a “Meet the Inventor” session where she can sign games from the convention’s attendees. WashingCon would like to thank Miranda for supporting our community and work.
