Two themes that didn't make the cut because I hope to develop these games at the library and the themes, while interesting, are not appropriate for that development situation.

Sperm competing for egg fertilization.
Panty Raid!


Updated Poll to extend deadline.

How about a game about game designers deciding on the theme for a game?

Wait, that was supposed to be open until the first. Please place your votes here instead.

Good, I thought it was too late as well ... laugh
My vote goes for this theme:

Reporters in a cyberpunk future exposing corporate corruption.


This was close to the theme of Golem Racing - maybe next year?

Greetings from Germany,
Shaun

Yes please.

I'll just use the original votes as a tie breaker, if I can't make up my mind on my own.

So, by both the second (longer-term) poll, and by "compiling" the results from both polls, it looks like the winner is Golem racing.

I'll start working on it now.

Could the golems be racing to see who can make tacos the fastest, and then eat the most tacos they made? And then maybe sell their excess tacos in a post-apocalyptic economy with card AI independent villages?

I'll be interested to see if your take on this is anything like what I had in mind.

FYI: my inspiration for this came because I just finished reading Feet of Clay by Terry Pratchett.

I love Feet of Clay, but sadly it won't actually provide a lot of guidance for the game I'm making.

I've put a couple notes up here: https://sites.google.com/site/walsfeo/game-designs/go-go-gol...

and will continue to do so.

Please excuse the rest of the site, it's very slipshod.

Whatever happened to your idea "Whoopie Cushion: The Board Game"? Maybe the air soured around that one.
