An autistic man who has started designing his own board games to help others overcome social anxiety debuted his first creation on Thursday.
Barrington Campbell, 31, founded Kagai Games earlier this year when his therapist suggested he focused on what he loves. Within a month he’d had made 57 from scratch.
In order for him to build a working prototype for his first game, based on an old Chinese folk tale, Barrington needs to raise £4,000.
So last week he launched a crowdfunder and let people test out the game for the first time at Wusi Space in Broadway Market.
“People were saying they really enjoyed it and the main thing was it was going to be addictive, which is kind of what I wanted,” said Barrington of Canonbury.

“I wasn’t going to ask people about it, I was going to email, which is easier for me, but a BBC journalist was asking people and I could hear!”
