  Largest board game-world record set by Luanga Nuwame

 MISSISSAUGA, ON, Canada--Using plywood, some spruce lumber and a lot of paint and stain, 32-year-old Luanga Nuwame created a 900 square feet board game which sets the new world record for the Largest wood board game made by one person.

   "I'm passionate about board games, so I made this big, massive thing," he said. "It's more than a game; it's an interactive piece of installation art" says Luanga Nuwame.

   In Search of Sauga-the world's Largest board game-comes in huge pieces, some spray-painted with names of Mississauga neighbourhoods, which will be laid on the floor at Vic Johnston Community Centre in Streetsville on Oct. 18.
   People will become the game pieces, hopping from spot to spot by answering questions about the city.

   The self-confessed toy fanatic and business owner also wants to put his city on the map by prominently featuring Mississauga in the game.
   “For too long this amazing city has lived in the shadow of Toronto and this initiative is an attempt to give the city international attention through media coverage,” he said.

  "I grew up in the '80s and have been playing board games since I was a child," said Nuwame, who was born in Scarborough and raised in Mississauga.

   "You can say I'm an obsessed toy and game designer. This isn't work for me. I really enjoy it."

   The previous Guinness world record for the largest board game structure was held by U.S. toy maker Hasbro.

    Luanga Nuwame runs an online company to promote his ideas for trading cards and board and card games and does odd jobs to help keep it afloat.

    On the Net:

Luanga Nuwame: "My designs and ideas are not about just building some contraption or crazy concept. I show ways to make fun things that require some imagination, physical activity and more importantly, a desire to try something I throw in some rare collectibles and just odd stuff for the fun of it."

   Nuwame said most of his ideas just aren't feasible to manufacture, so they sit on a shelf or in the recesses of his mind.
   Some of his inventions include The Official Black History Trading Card Series, The Canadian Heritage Trading Card Series, The 30 Most Evil People of All Time Card Set and Political Targets Board Game. They’re sold online at
