Abstract

We are a group of international researchers who have worked on the topic of ludic boredom on a number of occasions (Apperley 2018; Fizek 2018; Lammes 2017, 2018; Leino 2018; Majkowski 2018; Möring 2014, 2018). The latest result of our ongoing work is a manifesto for ludic boredom which we offer to present in the form of a performative reading and thereby triggering a discussion on the topic with the audience. We believe that ludic boredom is a timely topic worthwhile to be discussed in the context of the DiGRA 2019 conference at least three reasons: 1. Boredom is a phenomenon that can be intrinsic to play and games, but remains under-theorised; 2. Cultural, societal, economic and technological developments can be interpreted through the lens of ludic boredom; 3. It caters well to the topic of the conference, that is ludo-mix, since ludic boredom is a transmedial phenomenon.
