New Meetup: Rio Grande Games - Design Compitetion Registration

From: Heather
Sent on: Sunday, July 5, 2009 4:50 PM
Announcing a new Meetup for Indy Gamers!

What: Rio Grande Games - Design Compitetion Registration

When: September 12,[masked]:00 PM

Where:
Heathers Place
Fishers, IN

Hello,

Everyone who wishes to compete in the Rio Grande Design compitetion will need to present a workable game prototype to Heather or Shane personally on or by this date. On this date, there will be an open house presentation opportunity. No entries will be accepted after this date. You are welcome to make arrangements personally with Shane or Heather before this date and time.

Acceptable entries will include:
Complete instructions
A facsimilie of all pieces and board necessary

On this date we will playtest your game and discuss improvements that could be made before the semi-final compitetion in October. You will not be able to present your game personally ing the semi-finals so the materials and instructions you provide in October will need to be strong enough to stand on their own.

10 semi-finalists will be entered in the final compitetion at the Chicago Toy and Games Fair. Each finalist will receive free admission to the Chicago Toy and Game Fair and a 30 minute time slot with Jay Tummelson to present and discuss their prototype. Travel and expenses are not provided. Prototypes cannot be submitted by proxy or by absentee with written/video/voice description; the designer must be present to explain their designs.

The grand prize winner will have their game licensed and published by Rio Grande games.

*The license is a financial agreement. The amount that a licensee receives from a license agreement isn't extravagant, and anyone doing this should be primarily interested in the opportunity to get a private session with Jay to make their pitch and present a prototype, which most manufacturers will only do after reading proposals and lengthy discussions first. Anyone selected for licensing could decline, but to do so would probably not be in their best interest.

**Rio Grande is a publisher of board and card games. Rio Grande does not publish RPGs (anyone looking to have their RPG published will probably have to explore independent publication).
