This will be the Indianapolis semi-final round for the Rio Grande Games - Design Compitetion
Come out and playtest/ judge the games!!
We will have regular games along with all entries to the Indianapolis semi-final round of the Rio Grande Games - Design Compitetion.
The game's creators may be present at the playtesting event, but will be prohibited from playing their own game at the event as well as explaining or clarifying rules to any of the playtesters. We recommend having playtesting sessions of your own prior to the event to help clarify any rules issues, and having additional copies of the rules and game aids/quick references available for the contest. Game creators will have the opportunity to review and get feedback on their submission at their registration.
Players evaluating the prototypes will be required to play all prototypes and submit a vote sheet at the end ranking each of the games (1, 2, 3, etc). Incomplete voting sheets will not be counted.
Each game's total ranking will be added up to determine who claims the finalist position. The 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 be selected from 10 semi-finalists selected from various meetup groups across the country and will have their game design published by Rio Grande Games.
