When can you use the WAYK name and logo? What do we think about you accepting money for running games of WAYK?
We encourage everyone to organize free community games and play WAYK as often as possible, using the WAYK logo and name.
We encourage you to organize these kinds of events in a “feast-style”, having the best finger foods and meals on hand while you play your way to fluency. In order to support this, we recognize that you may want to collect donations for food and use of facilities.
If you’d like to collect money for running the games themselves, as a WAYK “instructor” or “game leader”, we require that you go through our in-house vetting process so we can evaluate where you sit on the WAYK fluency game proficiency scale. At that point we can begin a conversation about what agreements we need to make around “official” use of the WAYK game identity.
We’ve spent some time thinking about what it means to “certify” game leaders in this way, balancing our “open source” philosophy, with a desire to protect the integrity of the game, and haven’t quite made up our minds about it; but for now, please email us any questions about earning money using the WAYK logo, running “official” games, or “certification”.
Our priority continues to be to share the game, and see fluent proficiency emerge in learning communities everywhere.
Equally, however, we want to preserve the integrity of the game, and the rich library of techniques that keeps growing with the support of all of you in the WAYK community of play.
