Game Design Prototype “Speed Gaming” Competition

Game Design Prototype “Speed Gaming” Competition
Click here for the Flyer!

 Game designers are invited to bring game prototypes for a fast-paced playtesting competition. Each designer will have no more than 10 minutes to setup and explain his or her game, and then will spend 20 minutes playing his or her game. Players will rotate and the process will repeat three more times.

As a designer, you are welcome to bring a game prototype that plays no longer than 20 minutes and plays 2-6 players. The number and type of components is up to you.

 Games will be judged by playtesters and a panel of judges on the following criteria: originality of theme, innovativeness of mechanics, replayability, interactivity, fun, and gameplay overall.

To enter the competition, message funkdonut via BGG GeekMail or email geekwaytothewest@gmail.com. Registration may be limited.

The opportunity to pitch your microgame and have it reviewed by Alderac Entertainment Group! (www.alderac.com)

Second prize: A second raffle will award one play tester with a blank, empty game box filled with blank boards and plenty of random bits for the game designer that lurks in you. Unleash the dragon!
